Watch the video below for a great goal-line clearance from FC Chippenham’s Oliver Derrick in the North Wilts Youth Football League Cup against Greenmeadow.
Derrick’s headed stop proved vital as his side went on to win the game 2-1.
FC Chippenham started the game strongly and went ahead early on after Clark Luke scored after connecting with a great cross from the right wing. The game then settled down and developed into a great end to end fixture as Greenmeadow Youth played themselves back into the game.
As we approached the end of the first half Greenmeadow applied pressure and had 3 great chances in quick succession, it wasn’t all one way, the Greenmeadow keeper pushing the ball onto the crossbar from a Heyden Buckland shot.
The second-half started in a similar way to the first, FC Chippenham applying the early pressure, the Greenmeadow keeper was unable to keep hold of a ball crossed in from the right, but their defence managed to clear the ball off the line.
Greenmeadow were unable to take advantage of a weak FC Chippenham back pass, Rowan Doyle unable to get a shot away. FC Chippenham’s Tom Wassli was the scorer of their second goal from a corner.
Greenmeadow were quickly back on the attack and shortly after the referee awarded a penalty to Greenmeadow which Rowan Doyle converted to make the score 2-1. Both sides still had chances but neither could convert them.
