Local rivals Thornes U15s Reds and Durkar Juniors played out a very competitive game in the first round of the U15s Invitation Cup.

Durkar took the lead on the stroke of half time but Thornes hit back early in the second with a strike from Luke Heaton, before Zing Zondo got on the end of a through ball to send Thornes through to the next round with a 2-1 victory.

All of the Thornes defensive unit were excellent, with Parssa Rahimi being nominated as man of the match for his outstanding performance at centre back.
