Boys Team 1996
U16 - The Invincibles
U16s - Title Charge
Under 16s 27/04/13 Uppermill 8 Hade Edge 2
This was possibly the longest night in football history!
Hade Edge were the visitors and managed to go Churchill instead of the Mill.
It then took then 30 mins to get to the Mill and then with three players.
Game finally kicked off at 7.
Mill soon took control and raced into a 3 goal lead, playing some good stuff.
Another good team display some Mill dominate and lead comfortably at half time.
The visitors decided to become aggressive in 2nd half and put pressure on the ref but Mill were dominant.
One incident saw Sam Griffiths take a bad tackle but just get up and smile.
Worryingly, when I told him he was a young Billy Bremner, he didn't know who I was talking about.
Mill ran out 8-2 winners but the night still wasn't over.
Hade Edge player managed to end up with his trainers and mobile in my car, another delay kept me sober a bit longer!
Under 16s 29/04/13 Uppermill 9 Greetland 1
Greetland arrived at the Mill having been riding high all season.
Keeper Crossland had to drop out at the last minute due to a family bereavement, a hasty reshuffle seeing the versatile Sam Wilson in goals with no gloves at the start.
This was a big game again for Mill but again they stepped up to the mark.
Early goals again settled things down and Mill really showed their good form to run out worthy winners.
A game played in good spirits against good opponents who had played 24 hours earlier so a good 3 points.
U16s title charge
Under 16s 19/04/13 Lepton 0 Uppermill 5
Mill continued their busy run of games by travelling across to Lepton (at Farnley Tyas) for a game which they should have had the points for weeks ago.
The game had been originally been called off for a frozen pitch/lads at a party/couldn't raise a team on the warmest day of the winter.
The game was now a big game as Lepton could have leapfrogged Mill in the table with a win.
Mill started OK up the hill but 1st half was a tense affair with both defences on top.
Mill played the better football but in truth neither Keeper was really stretched.
2nd half was a totally different game as Mill dominated from the start and it was only a matter of time before they broke the deadlock.
Lewis scored then Mill played really well with the game tight until last 15 minutes when they cashed in to end up 5-0 winners.
The win was sealed when a rare Norris right foot shot hit the post to allow Kitching to tap in.
A special mention to the young referee who did a great job and the first I've ever give 100/100 to.
Under 16s 21/04/13 Hebden Bridge 2 Uppermill 7
Another away day saw Mill negotiate a farmers track to find the pitch and then set off up another slope.
Mill weren't at their best after Friday's big win but were still strong enough to see off a spirited home side.
Mill went ahead early with Lewis again on fine form.
A couple of lapses allowed Bridge to keep interested and Mill on their toes.Goals from Kitching 2 and Oliver Heginbotham saw Mill run out 7-2 winners
U16s - Update !!
12/04/2013 Uppermill 9 Rastrick B 1
Mill started the first of their many night games with a resounding win at Greenfield Mill.
After Rastrick forced an early corner Mill began to dominate and play some really good stuff.
A good all round team performance saw Uppermill run out winners 9 goals to 1.
Sam Wilson led the line well and ended up with a Hat-trick and Matt Harewood also chipped in with a goal.
14/04/2013 BPA 0 Uppermill 3
This was a game that had disaster written all over it.
It took a trip round Bradford to find the pitch(wrong Postcode given) and when we did get there it was in a poor state.
Add in a howling wind and it was a real leveller.
BPA defended really well and Mill never really got any rythym going but the lads stuck to the task.
Kitching rediscovered his scoring touch with 2 to ease the nerves.
Despite it being awful to watch at times, Mill ran out 3-0 winners.
With Keeper Crossland absent, normal centre forward Wilson stood in and kept a clean sheet.
U16s V Brighouse
Under 16s 07/04/2013 Uppermill 4 Brighouse B 3
Uppermill were expecting a tough game as they had drawn at Brighouse earlier in the season and that's how it turned out.
Mill started well but from Mill's first corner Brighouse broke quickly and a good cross was headed home to see Mill one down, a good goal.
Mill continued to play well and soon equalised as a Sam Wilson mishit( he said it was a pass) was turned home at the far post by Lewis.
Mill then took the lead when a fine move on the left saw Norris rifle home a great shot from the edge of the box to take the lead.
Brighouse fought back and equalised when a long throw fell at striker's feet who finished well from the angle.
Mill kept going and another good goal from Lewis saw them go in 3-2 up at half time.
The second half saw Mill come under real pressure(it was like watching England when they're 1 in front!)
Mill created chances but didn't hit the target and ended up being pegged further and further back.
Eventually Brighouse drew level when a mistimed tackle saw a great shot fly into the Mill net.
At this stage a draw would have been taken but to Mill's credit they kept going.
This resulted in a last minute corner being headed home by Dom Shaw to get the three points for Mill, a great escape!
U16s v Silkstone
Under 16s 17/03/2013 Silkstone 1 Uppermill 6
Mill made the long trip to Silkstone knowing that a good pitch and the league leaders were waiting.
Having dropped two points the week before a good start was vital and this is what Mill got.
A ball over the top saw Lewis Newton free in the box but forced wide, despite this, the finish was superb as he volleyed home from the angle.
Mill were playing well but were pegged back when, from a Mill throw, the ball ended up at a Silkstone striker's feet who fired home a great shot past Crossland from the edge of the box.
Mill started to struggle a touch but managed to sneak a goal to go in 2-1 up at half time.
The second half was a different story as Mill dominated throughout.
Norris and Will Millward were on good passing form in midfield, defence looked solid and Rob Crossland was quick off his line to snuff out any danger.
This was a really good display from Mill which turned into four unanswered second half goals.
The two outstanding goals saw Wilson fire home a shot from the edge of the area after a flowing team move and Will Millward follow up his home pass to blast home a shot.
A really good team effort that ended 6-1 to Mill with the scorers Wilson 2 Millward 2 Kitching and Newton
