Young guns shine as Arsenal move into 5th round of FA Cup

first_imgAs a 22-pass Arsenal move approached an eye-catching crescendo, Willock’s surge opened up the Bournemouth defence.Willock picked out Martinelli, who deftly moved the ball onto Saka when a more selfish player would have shot and he smashed a thunderous drive into the roof of the net from an acute angle.– Bournemouth outgunned –Arteta had made five changes from the Chelsea match, with Nketiah making his first Arsenal start since January last year against Blackpool in the FA Cup.Nketiah was recently recalled from a loan spell at second-tier Leeds over concerns he wasn’t playing enough, but the 20-year-old showed his potential in the 26th minute as he doubled Arsenal’s lead.Unable to contain Willock and Saka, Bournemouth were carved open as the midfielder’s pass found the defender in acres of space on the left.Saka’s cross into the six-yard box was perfect for Nketiah and he slotted in his first Arsenal goal since May.Bournemouth are mired in the Premier League relegation zone and Eddie Howe made six changes as he prioritised top-flight survival.Completely outclassed for the first 30 minutes, Bournemouth finally had a sight of goal when Harry Wilson’s volley was saved by Emiliano Martinez.Arteta’s men didn’t have it all their own way in the second half and Martinez took out his own player when he clattered into Shkodran Mustafi in a bid to catch a cross.Mustafi had to be stretchered off as a result of the clash.The hapless Martinez nearly gifted Bournemouth a goal moments later when he missed with his attempt to punch clear, but Jack Simpson headed just wide of the empty net.Share on: WhatsApp Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah celebrate.Bournemouth, United Kingdom | AFP |  Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah gave a glimpse of their potential as the youngsters fired their side into the FA Cup fifth round with a 2-1 win against Bournemouth on Monday.Mikel Arteta turned to youth at Dean Court and Saka, Nketiah and Joe Willock repaid the Arsenal manager’s faith with influential displays that secured a trip to third-tier Portsmouth.Saka gave Arsenal an early lead as the 18-year-old full-back bagged his third goal of the season with a superb strike.Nketiah got the second before the interval to ensure Arteta took another step towards emulating his FA Cups triumph as an Arsenal player in 2014 and 2015.Sam Surridge got one back for Bournemouth in the closing minutes, but it was too late to salvage a replay.Languishing in 10th place in the Premier League after failing to win any of their last three games, this was a welcome boost for Arteta as Arsenal built on their hard-fought draw at Chelsea last week.It was Arsenal’s third win in eight matches under Arteta in all competitions, with just one defeat in that run.Arteta’s first match in charge of Arsenal was a 1-1 Premier League draw at Bournemouth in December, but his team looked far more accomplished this time, even without several key players.With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still suspended, 18-year-old striker Gabriel Martinelli started for Arsenal.Martinelli had scored in Arsenal’s past two Premier League games to reach 10 goals for the season.But the Brazilian isn’t just a poacher and he showed his creative vision as Arsenal made a perfect start in the fifth minute.last_img read more

Internationals tame the winds to set championship pace

first_img15 May 2017 Internationals tame the winds to set championship pace Internationals Aileen Greenfield and Lulu Housman set the pace on a windy first day at the English senior women’s amateur championship at South Staffordshire Golf Club. The conditions were testing, especially when combined with the slick greens, but the leaders fashioned impressive scores of two-over 75 as they set about the 36-hole process of qualifying for the match play stages.  “This is the sort of course where you have to think your way round,” said Greenfield, who was in England’s winning team at last year’s senior Home Internationals. She did that in style, with two matching halves of one-over par – thanks in part to a sure touch on the greens. “The greens are very undulating and the downhill, downwind putts are very difficult,” added Greenfield, from Pyecombe in Sussex (Image © Leaderboard Photography). She was followed in by Housman, whose score marked a return to championship form after a disappointing season last year when she missed out on a place in the England team. She played for the national side in 2015, after winning the English senior stroke play title, and her aim this week is to amass precious order of merit points to help her return to the team. Housman, from Wyke Green, Middlesex, has put in plenty of work with her coach and she remarked: “Today was a good start, but there’s a long way to go and I’ve got to keep my head screwed on!” The leaders are being chased by Suffolk’s Fiona Edmond (Ipswich), a former England women’s international who is making her debut in senior ranks and is one shot off the lead. Behind her is a group on five-over 78, made up of former champion Caroline Berry (Bromborough, Cheshire), Yorkshire’s Heather Staniforth (Hallamshire) and Devon’s Jo Shorrocks (Bigbury). The local challenge is led by South Staffordshire’s own Annette Deeley on 79, while past champion Julie Brown (Trentham) shares 12th place on eight-over. She’s in a group which includes defending champion Cath Rawthore (Sale, Cheshire) and 2015 winner Helen Lowe (Scraptoft, Leicestershire).  Shorrocks was a member of an England Golf working party which came up with a new format for this year’s tournament. It increases the championship match play flight to 32 players and introduces a second flight for the top 16 players aged over 60. “I think it’s gone down very well,” she remarked of the changes. The leading players in Flight Two – contesting the Ann Howard Trophy – are Carol Wild (Notts Ladies) and Jeannie O’Keeffe (Hankley Common, Surrey) who both shot 82 today. O’Keeffe, who putted well to initially set the target, commented: “My days of playing in the top flight are past and I’m very, very happy to have Flight Two and it’s lovely playing against my peers. It’s exciting and there’s a strong field.” Click here for full scoreslast_img read more
