8:00am Wednesday 19th March 2014

Vale of White Horse Under 15s’ best performance of the season wasn’t enough to prevent a 2-0 defeat at Southampton in the Wright Cup semi-finals.

Despite defending superbly, with Luke Ballard and Matt Kinchin outstanding and keeper Anthony Hart making a number of brave saves, Southampton opened the scoring after 20 minutes.

Lee Davis went close on three occasions for Vale.

But their fate was sealed when the hosts added a second goal soon after the interval.
