Weekly Round Up 7-8 April: Under 18 title race hots up

By Neil McGowan

The Easter holidays meant that there were very few Community teams in action this weekend.

Community First Team lost 3-1 at Magdala Amateurs, Joe Harrison with Community goal.

Basford U18 Black lost for the second time this season 1-0 to fellow title chasers Bilborough.
Basford made all the running in the first 20 minutes creating great chances for Rob Taylor Henry Burton Joe Laurie and Tom Rees only to find Bilborough's keeper on fine form with some fantastic saves.

The only threat from Bilborough seemed to be a long ball into Basford's area which the back four managed to deal with every time apart from when Basford again making a needless foul allowing Bilborough to launch another ball into the area where the first header was won only to kindly drop to a Bilborough player who found the corner of the net.

The second half continued in the same manner, Basford found the net twice but both ruled out as were alleged to be off side. Basford kept knocking but couldn't find the correct final pass to allow any clear chances and the game ended 1-0 Bilborough.

Basford still sit at the top of the table with two games left needing 4 ponits to guarantee the title , with the visit from Bilborough looking to be a possibility of winner takes all on the last game of the season.
