Hugo Grayling scored four as Thurston Under-16s produced an outstanding display at Needham Market Phoenix in our match of the week.

Man-of-the-match Ben Seeley (three), Lawrence Porter, Ben Frost and Adam Carter were also on target in their 10-1 triumph.

Defensively, Jay Rogers was on fire and Jack Horn tackled superbly, while goalkeeper Oli Robo provided a fabulous assist.

Ellesse Masters finished off a superb move to set Brandon Lasses Under-16s on their way to a 5-0 triumph at Stalham, during which Ruby Robertson was named player of the match.

Masters got her second after some exceptional passing from the girls and Amy Skipp made it 3-0 with a first-time strike from outside the box.

Chloe Bentick got the fourth after a neat ball was threaded through from midfield and Brandon’s fifth came right on the final whistle when Georgia Dargan beat the defender and goalkeeper before finishing into an empty net.

All the girls would like to wish Sam Cole a speedy recovery as she flies off to the USA for an operation.

Bury Town Under-15s played their part in an entertaining goal-fest when going down 9-4.

Ethan Radford opened up the scoring with a fierce drive from Lucas Balista’s set up.

The same pair combined again for Bury’s second and Joe Stanton took a quick free-kick to Jake Paxton who sidestepped two defenders before firing in a low shot.

Kieran Freeman wrapped up Bury’s scoring, chipping the keeper after being put through by Radford.
