The Cobras’ Under 19 side had the perfect start under new manager Scott Rogers with a fine 3-1 victory in a friendly against Dronfield Town Under 21s at the HE Barnes Stadium.
Clipstone started well and deservedly took a 16th minute lead when Harry Lindsay headed home a free kick. The visitors continued to create the better chances and doubled their lead after 49 minutes with a powerful Ethan Little header from a corner.
The home side then exerted sustained pressure and grabbed a goal back with 20 minutes remaining.
The crucial next goal came the way of the Cobras in the 88th minute when Alex Green was put through and his excellent finish beat the advancing ‘keeper.
These are early days for the new look Cobras Under 19s side but the initial signs are very encouraging, in particular their work rate when not in possession and the fact that all 13 players involved on the evening contributed to the victory.
