Grassington Juniors 5
Sutton Juniors u7A 4
This DFL League game was played on a postage stamp-size pitch in cold, wet and blustery conditions.
Despite this, Sutton were quickly into their stride but, despite all the early pressure, Grassington pounced on a loose ball in defence to score first.
Stan Lloyd quickly equalised tonally for Grassington to add two more goals when Sutton again failed to clear the ball out of the danger area.
In the second half, Matthew Broadbent calmly slotted home a left-foot strike through a packed penalty area to to pull one back but once again the Sutton defence went to sleep and Grassington made it 5-2.
Two quick goals from Matthew Broadbent and Sam Benson narrowed the lead to a single goal to set up a grandstand finish but it was too late to save Sutton, who won the corner count 10-2 and were 15-5 ahead on shots.

The friendly started very much like the first game with Sutton on the front foot.
Unfortunately though, a lack of concentration and failure to close the ball down saw the Grassington team take a quick 3-0 lead.
Tommy Davis and Flynn Weller were putting in a great shift in the centre and breaking down the opposition attacks and distributing the ball out to the wings.
Stan Lloyd and Aidan Lee both bagged a goal apiece with great individual runs.
Grassington added two further goals in the second half but again the scoreline flattered the home side, who seemed to score from all the chances they had.
Player of the day was Daniel Mason for his great midfield and attacking play.
