EBBSFLEET'S youth section enjoyed another wonderful weekend, registering some excellent results.

The U9 Reds continued their winning form when they took on old rivals, Darent River Green.

Zachary Garratt opened the scoring after two minutes to put the Reds in front. Luke Carey then floated a cross towards James Miles, who headed home before Jack Fenton knocked in a third. With two minutes remaining, Fenton got his brace to close out a 4-1 victory.

The sun was most definitely shining for Ebbsfleet U9 Whites, who recorded an excellent 8-5 victory over Kingfisher JFC. Sam Miles scored a very impressive hat-trick and Jaydn Gildea added two goals to his tally for the season.

Grant Runter got his brace and the final goal for Ebbsfleet went to Harjit Sharma in the 40th minute.

After a shaky start to the season, the U10 Reds finally found their feet beating Fleetdown 4-0 with strikes from Evans, Rosenfield, Walker and Martin-Clements.

The U10 Whites met a very strong Kingfisher side away from home and were soon two goals in arrears. Despite a brave effort, they finally lost 4-0.

In the Bexley League, Ebbsfleet U11s faced VCD and earned a superb and hard-fought 6-5 away win thanks to a Ben Francis treble, a George Jordan double and a solitary effort from debutant Ben Francis.

The U13s kept up their streak of success with a 4-2 victory over Larkfield. James West and Josh Algar scored in the first half as the two sides went in level. Ebbsfleet put on a much better display in the second half and Bradley Setters soon poked his side in front and completed the scoring with a strike into the top right corner.

The U14s had a tough fixture against Dover Rangers and lost 5-4, despite a hat-trick by Kaiyne Woolery.
