Kinja FC Results 3rd & 4th March

There was only one game to go ahead for our Kinja teams this weekend, and it was our U15 Boys, who had a home fixture against top of the table Headstone Manor, in what was expected to be a thrilling game.

Pranay Dhanani and Harry Sherman, Chairman and Vice Chairman respectively, were both in attendance to see the boys, as was one of our head coaches, Mo Jama, and former coach Sajith Sri. So it there was a lot of support for our boys side, who have had some big results against tough opposition, and should be a lot higher than they are in mid-table.

The boys took a little while to get into the game, and found themselves a goal down within the first ten minutes, after a nice move was ended with some clinical finishing, with a goal that goalkeeper Leyth could do nothing about. All was not looking good.

Fortunately for the boys, they had a number of trialists making their debut, and one debutant, Gabs, made a strong start to his Kinja account, with a lovely goal, that levelled the sides up, about midway through the first half.

El-Nashi was extremely unlucky to put Kinja into the lead moments later, when he headed in a corner ball, only for the referee to rule it out for handball, after having a discussion with the oppositions linesman. It was a moment that required VAR, that's for sure. But we didn't have to wait long to be put into the lead.

Just before half time, Kinja win a corner. Java strolls up to take and, as cool as he always is, bends the ball straight into the top corner directly from the corner spot. The ball didn't even hit the inside netting, the bend was that pure. An incredible goal to put Kinja 2-1 as they headed into half time.

The second half got off to a slow start, but we were treated to arguably the best goal that's ever been scored in grassroots football. Ball was played into Java, with his back to goal, he beautifully flicked it over the immediate defenders head, spun and struck the sweetest volley known to mankind, straight into the top corner. All of the Kinja supporters went wild as Java showed just the kind of magic he can produce when he wants to.

3-1 up, and the boys clung on for dear life to see out the win. The woodwork was hit twice, and our number 1, Leyth, was brought off with a hip injury that sees him out for 3 months, and technically the rest of the season, it was looking like a tricky end. Gabs headed in goal, and did exceptionally well to hold his own against wave after wave of Headstone Manor attacks.

A fortunate goal for the opposition proved to just be a consolation, and Kinja confirmed a brilliant victory against very tough opposition, on a weekend where all other teams had to have a weekend indoors, with no football to play. 3-2 being the final result.

A huge well done to all of the U15 Boys, and we all wish Leyth a speedy recovery, and hope he comes back fighting!
