AFC Dronfield U12s conceded three goals in the opening 15 minutes - but staged a remarkable comeback to defeat Greasborough Youth 6-4.

Dronfield scorers were man of the match Jack Roy 2, Charlie Benn 2 Ross Martin and Sam Woods.

AFC U8s played out a close competitive game against a strong Eckington Boys side on Sunday. Ryan Hudson was the star of the day with an exceptional game in defence, while Freddie Parlby was his usual energetic self in midfield. Samuel Hartley hit a stunning goal for AFC, striking a pile-driver into the top corner at the end of a strong run from midfield.

AFC U10s stormed into second position after meeting Wickersley Youth at home this weekend. AFC opened the scoring, a deflected Jack Parish corner finding goal, closely followed by two more from Jack to leave the home side three goals up at the close of the first match. AFC started as they meant to go on in the second match, Oliver Marshall this time adding to the visitors misery.

Tim Clark added another and despite a consolation goal for Wickersley, Thomas Clay rounded off with a final curling flourish to seal the 6-1 Dronfield win. Man of the match awards went to Jack Parish and William White.
