Durkar Devils U15s returned from their half-term trip to Holland having won and lost a game against Dutch opposition.

As is usually the case with teams returning from playing in Europe, Durkar made a very sluggish start in their clash with Crofton Juniors and found themselves 2-1 down with only five minutes gone, after Elliott Copley had put them in front.

By half time Durkar had recovered to lead 5-2 and added three further goals in the second half to complete an 8-2 victory with further goals from Ben Lewis (4), Lukas Kiss (2) and captain Danny Tunningley.

Central defender Ben Smith took the Conservatory Outlet man of the match honours for a commanding display at the back.
