Team Manager Colin Duff said it was a pleasure watching the Under 10's Tornadoes versus Barr Hill Hearts game. This Development Group Red Division encounter produced an evenly balanced first half with both teams playing some brilliant football. It was a lovely move from Beechy that broke the deadlock via a pinpoint pass from Joel Thorndyke to Ellis O'Brien-Walsh who controlled the ball superbly and his perfectly weighted pass set-up Finley Fairhurst and he calmly slotted past the keeper. Ten minutes later Finley Fairhurst turned provider when he rolled the ball across to Ellis O'Brien-Walsh for a finish into the bottom corner of the net. The Tornadoes third goal arrived after the Barr Hill keeper pushed out a shot by Edward Hughes towards Finley Fairhurst and he fired the ball first time into the top of the net. Goal number four was a carbon copy of the previous goal when the Barr Hill keeper produced another good save but Finley Fairhurst netted the rebound to complete his hat-trick. Freddie Wardle marshalled his goal area perfectly again while both Aiden Lawton and Ashley Tonge produced some top-class defending. Owen Hogben caused the Barr Hill defenders all sorts of problems with his non-stop running and Edward Hughes broke up any moves Barr Hill put together and this was a fully deserved win for the Tornadoes.
