The boys' Under 18 team play in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League East Division for 2016-17. They play their home games on Tuesday evenings under floodlights, 7.45pm kick-offs. The team is managed by Steven Thompson-Friend.
The best local talent in the area at this age group saw the Beccles
lads come away with a 2 nil victory.
Bungay got off to the worst possible start when in the first minute
Beccles striker Webb was allowed to nod home from close range. The game
settled down with both sides playing neat passing football on the
excellent playing surface. Bungay had a great opportunity to equalize
when the pacey Mortimer(E) found himself free in the box but his shot
was wide. Another setback soon followed for Bungay as the same player
player left the pitch with a rib injury after colliding with the Beccles
keeper. Late in the half Beccles strikers Webb and Read were both unable
to convert good chances.
Into the 2nd period and it wasn't long before Beccles increased their
lead. Webb outpacing the Bungay defence and curling a great shot into
the far corner. The game continued with neat football all over the
pitch, although Bungay struggled with their final ball to the striker.
Further chances did fall to both sides. The dangerous Ellis broke
through Bungay's defence on more than one occasion but shot wide. Bungay
also going close with debutant Tennant's long range effort narrowly
missing the top corner, and Mitchel testing the Beccles' Norfolk u18
The game was played in good spirit throughout and both sides can be
proud of their performance.
