Jack Cruise was in exceptional form in midfield, while team-mate Alex Gibson was a rock in the heart of Angel’s defence.
Admiral also had their chances, with Koby Walters and Max Bave both putting in commanding displays. But the player of the match without doubt was Admiral keeper David Daley, 8, who pulled off a string of fine saves to earn his side a point.
