Mansfield Town 9 v Kimberley Miners Welfare 0 - WVH NMU19L (South)

Mansfield Town U19 (5) 9
Lots of Stags U19 players
Kimberley Miners Welfare U19 (0) 0
As one sided mismatches go, this was a completely one sided mismatch.
In mitigation, Kimberley had concentrated their efforts this week on a FA Youth Cup match against Leicester Road at the Stag Ground last night, which they won 2-1.
The Stags saw the final ten minutes out virtually at walking pace and barely celebrated any more, as the goals rained in past Ryan Davey at regular intervals.
There are obviously a few decent stand out players among the home sides ranks, but they'll need to be involved in slightly more competitive games than this one, if they are to develop and learn their trade.
That isn't meant as a criticism to Kimberley in any way, shape or form, they had a fixture clash to contend with and had to make a decision as regards their own priorities.
Mansfield for their part, could only play what was in front of them and knuckled down and got on with things in a professional, if not overly exerted manner.
FT: Mansfield Town U19 9 v Kimberley MW U19 0
