UPHILL Castle Under-16s started the game well against Hutton and were much the better team in the first 20 minutes, but could not make that count with a goal.

A poor challenge from Lucas Elliman saw him receive a yellow card and shortly after Hutton opened the scoring, a shot hitting the post and bouncing in off Uphill keeper Hathway.

In the second half, Uphill lacked penetration and poor defending saw Uphill concede a second goal. Referee Dave Trevaskus controlled the game extremely well in difficult circumstances.

Seymour Roofing man of the match was Ed Deane.
