Despite being drawn in a very tough group the U8 Generals did fantasticly to continue to battle through their games, and their efforts were rewarded with a result in their final game!  The boys played for fun and still had a smile on their faces at the end of the tournament!

Both U11 teams enjoyed an Inset Day training session at Hervines Park. It was a good opportunity to burn off some of the Easter chocolate and prepare for the matches coming up this weekendIMG 1506 1

The Saturday U11 teams had their final session on the astro turf this season tonight. It was another very competitive hour before midweek training moves back into the grass after Easter. Check the whatsapp group for details of any matches/training between now and then.

There was success for both Saturday U11 teams. The Clarets won their section of the Church League tournament following two close matches with Holy Trinity and Kings Church and all deserved the trophies they received for the hard work they have put in this season.

The Blues made their longest trip of the season to meet Thames Valley Youth and were excellent in the first half to go 3-0 up and eventually saw out the game to win 4-3, a scoreline which was probably closer than the balance of play. Everyone worked hard on a very warm morning and deserved the win.

Both teams are now well-placed in their divisions as we head to the end of the the season.

The Saturday U11 Blues played out a deserved 2-2 draw with Westwood Park. It was another much-improved performance with a number of players having their most impressive games of the season so far against one of the strongest teams in the division. 

The Clarets match with St James was postponed. They play Kings Church this week while the Blues have the week off.

There was also a very lively joint training session with the Sunday team on Monday which everyone seemed to enjoy.

It was a very good morning for both teams. The Clarets enjoyed a comprehensive win over Chalfont Blues to stay among those teams at the top of the table before a big game at St James next week.

The Blues were in the Fourth Division of the Church League tournament. They adapted very well to a new system and drew 1-1 with the eventual winners Holy Trinity, beat Thames Valley 1-0 and lost 0-1 to our bogey team this season Kings Church. That was enough for second place and a well-deserved medal. Westwood Park at home is coming up next week.

Both Saturday teams were involved in the Church League Tournament this weekend. The Clarets enjoyed a big win over Kings Church B-team and a narrow defeat to Westwood Park to finish second in their group. The Blues found it hard going against two teams from the higher division - Kings Church and Chalfont - before another defeat against Westwood Park from their league and finished 4th. Both teams will conclude the tournament next week.

Another great turnout at training despite the cold on Monday evening for all of the U11 teams. Sean's innovative drills seemed to go down well with all of the players. The Saturday teams are in action in the second week of the Church League tournament this weekend

There was a great turnout of 21 players for a joint training session for the Saturday and Sunday U11 squads at Challenors on Monday night. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to get there and to Sean for taking the session.

A combined Saturday squad enjoyed an excellent friendly against Radnage Raiders U12 over half-term. There were plenty of excellent performances in a 10-7 defeat against a side from the older age-group and it was the perfect preparation for the League Tournament over the first two weeks in MarchIMG 1058IMG 1059

U11 training

The Saturday U11 Clarets lost narrowly to Westwood Park this weekend. The Blues match was postponed at short notice but there was a great turnout for training. Both teams will be involved in the League Tournament after half-term.

Three U7 teams took part in our home tournament, held on the Chesham United first team pitch. The weather was kind, and there were good performances all round.


The tournament represented the first matches for new U7 intake. This group played really well given their lack of experience, and performances got better as the matches progressed.


There were some good individual performances and ‘magic moments’. Highlights included some good goals, with long range strikes from both Oscar and Dylan, and a good first-time finish from Felix. Also good to some improvements in the goalkeeping department, with special mention to Adam Bassett who kept a clean sheet against Chorleywood with some fine stops, and to Lewis who saved a penalty.

Chesham United Tournament 2

There was a bit of symmetry about the performances on a very hot morning at Woodside.

The Blues made a very slow start against a strong Iver Patriots but heads didn’t drop and the finish to the game was excellent. Clarets dominated the start against Kings Church but had to hang on for a narrow victory in the end.

Thanks to our regular catering team and the parents/grandparents for their support.DC4A4653 B146 426B A9C8 6C04EBB082F0

Its the festival next weekend. Teams will be confirmed this week.

Both The Clarets and Blues put in fine performances which got the results they deserved this morning against St James and Kings Church respectively.

Woodside has gone from a swamp to concrete in record time but everyone made a contribution - some for both teams - which sets us up for the busy Festival period coming up.

Only The Blues have a game next week at Legacy. Phil will be in charge, Aaron will be captain.




1DA876B2 E6C1 4C00 A854 B6C0DA4397C1Thanks for the great turnout at our first training session after Easter. The boys all put plenty of effort in during a lively hour. The pitches should have finally dried out for a double header at home next week. Clarets against St James, Blues verses Kings Church.

Both of the Saturday U10 teams have enjoyed a successful term despite some dreadful weather.

The Clarets have come through some very tough games with some excellent results while a number of players in the Blues teams have really improved - they've won some and lost some but apart from the odd exception the performances have been very good and the players have listened to the coaches and tried to act on what they've said. It was good to finish the term with both teams winning against one of the strongest clubs in their division.

There has been some movement between the two teams which is how it should be. Phil and I will continue to put players where they deserve to be based on performances or where they can help a particular team on a particular day.

Thanks as always to the parents and guardians who give up their Saturday mornings to support their children and their team. Without you, there wouldn't be a club.

Hopefully the weather will be better after Easter and we'll be able to finish the season on a high.

Sadly the weather has prevented us training today. The next session will be on April 14th with a home match against Kings Church pencilled in for the 21st. Have a good Easter. Nigel
