Hollands and Blair FC v St Peter F U 18 Kent County Youth Cup Quarter Final

 U 18 Kent County Youth Cup Quarter Final (Photo’s)

The game went ahead on a very heavy and bumpy pitch. (the 3 other quarter final game were all postponed due to the weather) Hollands and Blair FC were a very good young physical team.

Although the pitch was not suited to  St Peter’s normal passing game they took a  2-0 lead through goals from Hugo Pereira after 4 minutes and a Sol Solomon penalty  for a heavy mistimed tackle on him in the 15th minute. They were dominating the play and should have added to their goal tally.  However  in the 35th and 37th minute two quick goals from Hollands and Blair,  the first a rather soft penalty by Charlie Dale and a brilliantly worked goal by Tyler King brought the scores level. that’s how it remained until half time.

Immediately after half time St Peter  added two further goals from Sol Solomon  the first in 47th minute  when he got in front of his marker to bury a great Ryan Marcinko Cross from  the left and the second in the 55th minute a Solomon trade mark free kick  from the edge of the area  following a foul on himself . Once again St Peter two goals up and looking comfortable, with Tommy Boarer and Toby Ritzema  dominating the midfield and the whole team committed to the cause.

Again Hollands and Blair came back with Charlie Dale scoring his second in 70th minute to bring them back into the game 4-3 to St Peter.

It took an absolutely fantastic save from goalkeeper Josh Jehan to prevent H&B drawing level . Just minutes later St Peter were awarded a second penalty, which was despatched beyond the keeper’s reach into his bottom left hand corner.

The game finish 5-3 with St Peter looking to add to their tally

A thoroughly deserved victory against a team currently unbeaten in the best Youth  league in Kent. Although Rui Marques charges played exceptionally well , the heavy pitch and the prevailing conditions prevented them playing their normal free flowing football to the highest standards that they have set this season. 

The semi final opponents  and date has not been announced but is likely to be in March due to the Jersey Island teams County Cup fixtures. These are exciting times at St Peter with the Youth team emulating the Clubs senior side by reaching the semi-final  of their respective prestigious Kent County competitions.

New Year Message

Featured

To All players, parents, coaches and supporters

As we enter another New Year we can look back with pride at the fortunes of the Academy over the past year.

We remain competitive at all age groups with an increasing number of talented young footballers emerging.

Our senior Academy team, our under 18 squad, has won all of their matches to-date, which includes the league, cups and of course for the first time this season, the Kent FA Under 18 Youth Cup. The quarter final of the latter takes place on the 27th January. This years squad is following in the footsteps of 4 very good St Peter FC Under 18 teams as we have won everything including the Channel Island Championship for each of the past 4 seasons. However this years squad promises to be the best yet and they of course face the additional challenge of competing in the prestigious Kent FA Youth Cup. From the 64 teams who entered the competition we are now down to the final 8.

As we enter the second half of the season let us set ourselves the goal of making continuous improvement.

I must congratulate the entire Academy for the way they have conducted themselves. Once again we have set the standard for others to follow.

When you wear the St Peter FC shirt, wear it with pride. 2019 is the Centenary year of this fine club and it would be nice to finish this special season in style.

I would. Like to take this opportunity to wish all of you, a happy, healthy and successful year ahead. I thank you for your superb support and commitment to St Peter FC and I look forward to seeing our exciting young talent in action and taking their abilities to the next level in the next few months.

Best wishes

Brian Foulser

Kent Senior Trophy 3rd Round Report (Rochester United v St Peter)

Kent Senior Trophy  3rd round Rochester United v St Peter FC 

Played at Rochester on Saturday 24th November KO 2pm

In a keenly contested game at the home of ‘the Spartans’ as the United are known, St Peter ran out 2-1 winners, to progress to the quarter finals of the Kent Senior Trophy. The game got underway with the Jersey team playing their fluent passing style, causing the home team a number of testing moments. Rochester began to show their frustration. With some fierce tackles flying in. A late tackle on Sean Lambert caused a worrying concern with the tall centre back lying pole axed for several minutes. The resultant booking could easily have been far worse for United.

This was followed shortly after by a high tackle on captain Luke Campbell, which again delayed the restart for several minutes. The referee once again took a lenient view by only producing a yellow card.  This only caused St Peter to raise their game and some fine passing football saw young Sol Solomon go past two defenders on the right side of the area but having found himself with a clear goal scoring opportunity, his shot was too high to worry Rhys Coates in the home goal. Minutes later Daryl Wilson put another good chance past the post when he looked odds on to score. Rochester were now raising their game and causing the St Peter defence a few problems. Their best chance arriving when keeper Matt Donaldson dwelt too long on the ball and gave away possession in the penalty area. It required 3 staunch blocks to prevent the home team opening the scoring. In the 38th minute another fine through ball from Solomon found Calvin Weir just inside the Rochester area and he made no mistake in slotting the ball home to give St Peter a deserved lead. Although Rochester were beginning to win more possession the Jersey team went into half time leading by a solitary goal when with better finishing it could have been a wider margin. Half time Rochester United 0 St Peter FC 1

The second half began with St Peter team in the ascendancy. In the 50th minute Ruben Pestana sent a beautiful pass through to Wilson, who just 5 yards out put his shot just the wrong side of the keeper’s right-hand post. Shortly after following a corner Sean Lambert  struck the angle of the woodwork. In the 65th minute St Peter were made to pay for their missed opportunities when they were caught short of men at the back and Rochester seized their opportunity when the Rochester number 9 placed a fine strike wide of Donaldson to bring the scores level.  The equaliser invigorated Rochester who were now able to find a lot more space, creating opportunities but not really troubling Donaldson. Pestana and Ewing, who had worked exceptionally hard, gave way for Prince and Gallichan, the latter playing his first game after a long time out with injury was particularly impressive. In the 80th minute a fierce shot by the substitute looked to have found its target but Coates produced a fine save to turn the shot around the post. 4 minutes later Solomon hit a firm strike across the keeper narrowly missing the far post. The solid St Peter defence marshalled superbly all afternoon by Luke Campbell with Lambert, Poole, Preston and Luce ably assisting were not going to give anything away and the whistle went for fulltime with the scores even.

Extra time commenced with the game becoming more open, although it was end to end the better chances were falling to the Jersey team. Jake Prince shot narrowly wide of the keepers left hand post and in the 96th minute Solomon struck fiercely from 20 yards to force Coates into anther excellent save. Just before the end of the first period of extra time Solomon found himself in the referees note book with a late tired tackle. The second period commenced with both sides having opportunities to clinch a quarter final place. Solomon struck a beauty from 30 yards causing the home keeper to make another fine save low to his right. Just as it looked like going to penalties, with just 4 minutes remaining Daryl Wilson seized on a loose ball to fire in a shot which deflected off a defender to roll over the line past the despairing home keeper.

Having deservedly got themselves back in front, the whole team found renewed energy to ensure were not going to get any clear-cut chances. The final whistle went with the St Peter supporters on their feet acclaiming a  really good performance by their team. They now wait to see who they will face on the 19th January for a place in the semi final of this prestigious competition as Elmstead FC and Tunbridge Wells FC play their tie on Wednesday 28th November.

Kent FA County U18 Youth Cup Match Report (Sheppy Utd)

The Kent FA County U 18 Youth Cup

                    25th November at the Havill Stadium Holm Park Sheerness

                            Match result Sheppey United 0 St Peter FC 8

The St Peters U 18 team had the worst possible build up to their important 3rd round cup tie against a team lying in third position in the Kent Premier league South. A major accident on the M25 caused the motorway to be closed for several hours and a journey estimated to take an hour turned into a nightmare 4 hours. The start was delayed for two hours and the team on arrival,had to forego the warm up and line up straight away. Four members of the team joined the party at Gatwick having just completed a school tour playing three games in four days against 3 top public-school teams. Sol Solomon played the whole game for the first team against Rochester United the day before, which went to extra time.

 In front of a crowd of around 250 including scouts from Millwall, Gillingham and Dover FC’s  the game got under way with both teams testing each other . St Peters threatened on a number of occasions without putting the ball in the net

It took until the 35th minute before a great passing movement ended with Solomon chipping  the ball in to give the Jersey team a deserved lead. Having made the breakthrough and ostensibly used the first 30 minutes as a warm up, the game turned decisively when in the 38th minute Solomon won the ball on the halfway line and outpaced the Sheppey defence to hit a fine strike to the keepers bottom right corner. A minute later following a corner, Tommy Boarer, made the day for his watching family, with a great strike across the keeper from a tight angle to give St Peter their third goal in four minutes. This visibly took the sting out of a willing Sheppey side and half time came with St Peter 3-0 to the good.

As to be expected the Sheppey side came out for the second half full of determination but St Peter were now moving up a gear and playing some delightful football which was  being appreciated by the home crowd. In the 57th minute Solomon completed his hat-trick.

With James Carr and Ben Hamilton dominant at the centre of the Blues defence, Josh Jehan in the visitor’s goal, was not put under a great deal of pressure but was very efficient and tidy in everything he was called on to do. In the 58th minute Ryan Marcinko made in 5-0 from more excellent play when a cross to the far post found him with sufficient space to hit home. With the full backs Thomas and Soares getting forward at every opportunity the problems for Sheppey were growing by the minute. A foray by Olavo Soares ended with him being fouled on the edge of the area, he picked the ball up as if to say this one’s mine and struck a firm well placed free kick which hit the back of the net giving the keeper absolutely no chance. 67 minutes 6-0 to St Peter. The Jersey team’s management gave their young subs the opportunity to stake their claim for a future start. They replaced the lads whose legs were just beginning to wobble after their exploits in games earlier in the week. Rather than make life easier for the Kent team the pressure mounted. Dias took over at right back, Jack Moyse replaced James Carr, Danny Fernandes played wide right with young Luke Lister and Jan Bentley, who replaced the outstanding Solomon, supplying the threat up front. Both got on the score sheet with Luke Lister scoring a fine goal in the 69th minute to make it seven. Jan Bentley, who was proving a real nuisance to the home defence, got his just desserts with

an opportunist goal in the 85th minute to seal a remarkable victory against a highly rated Kent team. The management team of Rui Marques assisted by Karl Benest and Rogerio Soares know full well that this result will send a warning to the other 7 teams left in this competition and they will have to continue to be at their very best if they are to have any chance of continuing their progress in this competition. The draw for the quarter final takes place on Tuesday and those matches will be played on the 27th January.

After the game coach Rui Marques said “ It took a little while to take control of the game, which was understandable under the circumstances. Sheppey united caused us a couple of problems during the first 15 minutes due to their aggression and pressing style. We showed bravery and skill to  win the ball and keep possession in our defensive third  under such a high press. We trusted our philosophy, we knew we had the quality to play out and create space behind Sheppey’s backline. We continue to score freely but as a coach it’s the way we are creating our chances that I’m really happy about. Its satisfying to see that what we work on in training is transferring into our matches and this is down to the attitude and determination of the players. They are always seeking to improve and we are extremely proud of them for the effort and the skills they showed today”

St Peter FC Head Coach Ian Solomon who was also at the game commented “ The boys played exceptional football at times whilst being respectful of the opposition. They were a credit to themselves , St Peter FC and Jersey”.

For the record this team have now played 15 games this season including a pre-season tour to Kent, they have won all 15 games scoring 99 goals  and conceding 11 . The last goal conceded was on the 7th October having kept a clean sheet in their last 5 games.

St Peter FC Under 18 Kent Tour 21st to 25th August 2018

St Peter FC Academy is sponsored by lead Sponsor Altair Partners Ltd and Jacksons

St Peter FC Under 18’s returned on Saturday after a very strenuous but rewarding 4-day visit to Kent to play three top teams. Winning all three games was a tremendous achievement but the real satisfaction came from the manner in which they played. Rui Marques and his fellow coaches, Karl Benest and Rogerio Soares had been working on the fitness and the style of play for some time and this was the opportunity to put all the hard work to the test.

The first game, arguably their toughest, was played just three hours after arrival at their hotel. Playing Gillingham FC Under 18 Academy side on Gillingham FC’s first team training pitch at Beechings Cross, they produced some outstanding high-class football and an abundance of energy and total commitment in shutting down the opposition. Taking the lead after 12 minutes through a spectacular 25 yard special from Hugo Pereira, they looked comfortable in preventing Gillingham with a clear sight of goal. It was going to take something special to give the opposition a goal back and that occurred when minutes before half time some good interplay resulted in a delightful pass out to the left wing who cut in side and hit a fierce shot into the far corner of Josh Jehan’s goal. St Peters heads could easily have dropped and they might have feared the fitness levels of a team training 5 days a week would put them under increasing pressure. The second half commenced with the score 1-1 and for the first 10 minutes Gillingham showed renewed energy and a high level of determination without creating any clear-cut chances. St Peter then gradually came back strongly playing some delightful fast and creative football. After 58 minutes, Kacper Smilek, on in place of James Carr, saw the Gills keeper (an English International) off his line and struck a brilliantly spectacular goal into the keeper’s top left corner. This seemed to shake Gillingham who began to lose their cohesiveness, whilst St Peters raised their game to a higher level. The work rate of the team was incredible and they comfortably saw out a highly competitive, fiercely fought battle to earn  a well-deserved historic 2-1 victory over the professional clubs talented team.

It was difficult to pick an outstanding player as every one of the squad put in an outstanding performance of both skill and determination. One individual who his team mates recognised as being particularly outstanding  was full back Olavo Soares.

The following day the squad enjoyed a low-key coaching session with  FA Coach Kevin Bremner. In the evening they were the invited guests of Gillingham FC Chairman Paul Scally. They were provided with two Hospitality boxes to watch the Gillingham v Sunderland game.

On Thursday evening they travelled to Chislehurst to face Glebe FC Under 18’s. They played on a perfect pitch in the Clubs new Stadium. Any fears that the supreme efforts of the game against Gillingham would take its toll were soon dispelled. St Peters controlled the game from the start with a quite outstanding display of one and two touch football. Toby Ritzema scored in the 7th minute to the keepers bottom left hand corner. The Reds continued to play at a very high level and it was no surprise when Sol Solomon brilliantly beat 3 men got to the bye line and pulled the ball back to Ben Le Rougetel to strike firmly home from the edge of the area. After 27 minutes Toby Ritzema hit his second with a fine strike from 30 yards. Glebe were putting in some good work of their own and caused Josh Jehan to make a couple of very good saves.

However, Glebe were finding it difficult to adjust to the pace of the game and it was not really a surprise when Sol Solomon scored the goal his play deserved, to take St Peters to a 4-0 half-time lead. Glebe as expected came out with a different game plan and renewed energy but 10 minutes into the second half Sol Solomon scored his second to resume the pattern of the first half. The standard of football being played by the team was at an unbelievably high level and it was from a fantastic 6 pass move that Ryan Marcinko swept home for St Peters 6th. Hugo Pereira and Jack Lowery added further goals to give St Peter a resounding 8-0 victory over a shell-shocked Glebe FC. The plaudits of the Glebe coaching team and their Chairman were most generous, regarding the quality of the football the team had played.

The team moved on to Aylesford for their Friday evening game against K Sports . Played under the lights in their attractive stadium on a 3 G pitch. K Sports were last season’s  winners of the Kent Reliance Under 18 Youth Cup. They are a highly rated team and they started the game in style  matching the high class passing game of the Reds. After 10 minutes the heavens opened and was to persist for most of the game, however this did not have any adverse effect on the quality of the football. The game was end to end being played at a fast pace. Both teams had their chances with Jack Lowery getting in a first-class header from  a fine cross from Pereira saved brilliantly by the K’s keeper. 

Just before half-time a surprising defensive error gave the home side a 1-0 lead which they were to take into half-time. With the rain bucketing down St Peters players stayed on the pitch to take their briefing from Rui Marques and his coaching team.

When the game restarted it was St Peters who seized the initiative with full back Rhys Thomas skilfully hooking the ball to the keeper’s top right corner. Having fought so hard to get back on terms, it was a disappointment that just two minutes later, an uncharacteristic poor clearance out of defence and a level of indecisiveness enabled the K Sports striker to hit a fine curled shot from the edge of the area inside Jehan’s left hand post.

The 2-1 deficit seemed only to galvanise the St Peter team, playing some aggressive delightful football they were now in the ascendancy and it was nothing more than they deserved when Hugo Pereira went passed his marker and struck a 20-yard shot to bring the Jersey team level. It was now St Peter who were increasingly enjoying the bulk of possession and after 69 minutes an outstanding individual run by full back Olavo Soares going past 3 defenders getting to the bye line and cutting back inside to strike  a fierce shot across the keeper into his far corner. 3-2 to St Peter, any fears that K Sport could grab an equaliser were dispelled when another spell of fine football resulted in a corner from which centre back Jack Moyse headed home to give St Peter a 4-2 lead with just 7 minutes to play.

There was absolutely no way that the Reds were going to allow a very good K Sports team to get back into this game. The team were overjoyed to clinch a 4-2 victory to give them a hat-trick of wins over three of the very best teams in Kent. They can be very proud of their achievement, they were a credit to St Peter and to the quality of Jersey football. The Coaching team of Rui Marques, Karl Benest and Rogerio Soares can take a great deal of pride from the fitness and organisation of this squad.  Coach Rui Marques said “We have been preparing for the coming season for the last 10 weeks and the whole squad has really bought in to what we are trying to achieve. We are extremely proud of the commitment shown by the players, they have worked tirelessly to develop their strength and endurance whilst also learning a new style of football. Winning these games against very strong opposition has created real momentum going into the new season. Team spirit is high and the chemistry between the players, was clearly evident on the pitch”. St Peter FC will of course keep their feet on the ground and realise they have not won anything yet, as the season is just about to get under way. The competition in Jersey is very strong  and a lot of hard work and concentration will have to be delivered if the end of the season is to be considered as successful as this pre-season tour.

The St Peter FC Squad:- Joshua Jehan, Rhys Thomas, James Carr, Jack Moyse, Kasper Smilek, Myles Byron, Olavo Soares, Tommy Boarer, Toby Ritzema, Ben Le Rougetel, Jack Lowery, Hugo Pereira, Sol Solomon, Andre Dias, Ryan Marcinko.

Coaches:- Rui Marques, Rogerio Soares, Karl Benest.

 The final accolade came from the Hotel management who volunteered to state, that this team was “extremely well behaved, polite  and courteous. They were a pleasure to have in our hotel ,we would welcome them back at any-time.” St Peter FC, a credit to Jersey, both on and off the pitch.
