They might have lost 27-0, but the Ramsey players were still smiling

Ramsey Comets Under 12s are perfect proof that it’s not the winning, but the taking part which counts in junior football.
The Comets were beaten 27-0 by Godmanchester Rovers Blue in a Hunts Youth League game last Saturday. It means they have now conceded 84 goals in losing all six games to date and managed just one goal - from Reuben McPartlin.
But manager Jonathan Best’s report on their latest Division A clash, which appeared on the league’s Full-Time website, refreshingly revealed: “A great effort by all, still smiling at the end, can’t ask for anymore than that . . .”
There was only one other game in that division last Saturday and it was one by new leaders St Ives Rangers Black Sox. Daniel Legg and Amman Ahmed both struck twice in a 5-4 success over Little Paxton with Edward Hill getting the other goal.
Luke Fourie (2), Jack Nagle and Spencer O’Leary scored for a Paxton side who, like Ramsey Comets, are still looking for a first win.
Somersham Under 13s did succeed in picking up their first success of season last Saturday.
Rufus Tyers hit a hat-trick to lead them to an 8-3 verdict over Alconbury Red in Division A. Ben Gibbs, Sam Galloway, Nathan Hogg, Harry Holman and Jamie Raddon shared the other goals.
