THE best performance of the season so far from Brierfield Celtic Under 11 Reds still somehow ended in a 2-1 defeat against Readstone United Under 11 Blues.
One goal behind at half-time, Celtic couldn’t have started the second half any worse as a long range effort was deflected off Luke Ramsden to leave Alex no chance in goal and to leave the Reds 2 down.
A penalty was slotted home by Luke to make it 2-1 and for the rest of the game the Reds continued to dominate but could not get the rub of the green when needed to equalize.
