AFC Waverton Jets  2  Castrol Athletic  1

Waverton Jets won the under 9 shield at the Chester & District Junior League Finals day this Sunday. A close encounter with Castrol Athletic saw the Jets take a lead half way through the first half with a great strike from Adam Bayley curling the ball with the outside of his foot from 15 yards to beat the excellent Castrol keeper.

Castrol came back strongly after half time and leveled the match with a goal on the rebound following a fast break and shot from their left winger.

The Jets held their nerve and reclaimed the league 5 minutes later with a well worked move which saw Jack Bailey score clinically on the break. The team continued to press strongly and could have made it a two goal league seconds from the end when the keeper saved bravely from a James Thompson shot.

The match ended 2-1 and sealed a league and shield double for the Waverton team
