Dan Frodsham scores to ensure the points for Eastlands

Eastlands started the first of a Mid-Warwickshire Under 16s double header with Kenilworth on the front foot and totally dominated the first half . Shots were missed and saved from the off before Jeeven Saimbhi’s corner was shinned in by Dan Frodsham. In the second period the hosts stayed on top but couldn’t increase the lead.

In the second game it was the same pattern until Will Barnett put Leo Reilly through to coolly finish. Kenilworth then missed their best chance by shooting over.

In the opening seconds of the second half Ryan Prior beat four to cross into the box where Jack Leigh set up Frodsham who scored low into the corner.

Kye Gilbey and Harry Shorten went close before Ryan’s last minute corner went straight in to take another three points, built on two superb clean sheets from a well marshalled defence by Matty Natawidjaja, Dylan Smith and keeper Tom Maher .
