Information about the Chesham United Youth teams
Chesham Utd Yth v Chesham Athletic - December 3rd 2017
With us having a buddy team with Chesham Athletic it meant all 3 of or teams were involved at the Meadow this morning.
There were some very strong performances with Milo Blackburn once again claiming the first magic moment award, this time given by coach Ben.
Coach Paul handed his to Jake Dodwell who's silky footwork bamboozled defenders all morning!
Coach Dave handed his award to Callen Trevillion for his bravery in goal, sliding out numerous times at players feet to try and claim the ball, he also produced a lovely nutmeg during a spell out on pitch.
As always thank you to all the parents who got the players there, helped with the clearing up and the tea bar plus a big thank-you to Mark Bradley for taking on the refereeing duties this morning, it's great that we have so many people who step forward!
Next up is a home fixture against Wendover.
Well done everyone for Sunday it was all a bit last minute getting the team together but we finally got there and a draw is a god start with two of the new boys Archie who scored the second goal and Luca having good games, may it continue.
Thanks to all that turned up today .
Starting promptly and training first really helped both teams, as we were both drawing nearing half time , compared to going behind early last week.
I think that the players are all befitting from more game time since we slimmed the teams down . That said it would be great to have one sub for each team to put on fresh legs .
Jake and Liam led their teams well as captains , both scoring great goals.
Next week Adam and Sam take over the arm bands for our match against Chesham Athletic.
Special thanks must go out to Cameron for offering to go in goal for his team as our keeper had to retire sick and we went down to six a side.
All in all we had one win, one draw and two losses today against a very good side with multiple subs.
Thanks as ever for helping with the respect lines, reffing, and to Guy for helping with the keepers and team.
Please dont forget the kids need our belief and encouragement at all times from the sidelines, especially next week against our local rivals . Positive parents equals positive players and don’t forget drinks and healthy snacks for half time
After the game next week we will all have the chance to relax at the main Club, remember we are having our Christmas party at the club house from 12.00 ( food and drink funded by the club for the players ) and if you want to do secret Santa bring a present along for no more than £10.00.
I will send out the match details for this coming Sunday later this week but due to the more writer weather and colder mornings I am suggesting a 10.00 meet and a 10.30 kick off for us as we are at home again .
A sunny but cold morning against a big, strong powerful Downley Dynamo team. The only people to notice the cold were the parents watching as the players put in a superb morning of football on the common.
The hardest 'magic moment' award to judge so far with every single player in contention, coach Dave's award eventually went to Milo for his mazy dribbling skills which led him through the entire Downley team on one occasion whilst leaving 2 of them tangled up on the floor from trying to tackle him!
Coach Ben's award went to Euan who scored a goal after tacking a heavy knock!
As always we'd like to thank all our volunteer refferee's today's were Mike and Phil, great job, thank-you!
Next up on December 3rd is the Chesham derby at The Meadow
Well done to the Clarets who fought really hard to win at last season‘s League Champions St James thanks to Harry’s early goal.
It was a really physical battle but everybody worked incredibly hard to seal the victory - even without Phil’s guidance from the touchline !
Well done to the team who twice came back to draw with Kings Church this morning.
It was good to see the team get stronger the longer the game went on and Ilia’s cracking goal with the last kick of the game was fully deserved !
Chesham Under 13s 8 - 2 Harefield Reds
Luke x 2
After 2 difficult Cup games against higher league opponents we where today back to League action , and another tough home game against Harefield who had won all 7 previous games including a 4-2 against us 3 weeks ago .
The boys made a fantastic start with Man of the Match Sam scoring a 30 yard worldie after 5 mins , this was the first of a Hatrick for Sam and a great performance again . Everyone played fantastically today , Luke and John using their pace and skill to cause our opponents trouble for the whole game . Having been 3-0 up in the Cup Last week and managing to lose on Pens , we where a little nervous with the same score line at halftime but the boys started the second half quickly and got the 4th with a great solo goal from Luke . Harefield are a good passing team and they did cause us a few problems but the boys where resiliant and deadly on the counter attack , and as they pushed to get back into the game the boys took advantage of the space left behind with some clinical finishing .
Only our second game in Div 3 and to beat the League Leaders like they did will give them great confidence going forward .
Thanks to Nader for Reffing and for the excellent support as usual .
Next week : Home v George green Juniors
Chesham United Youth V Stokenchurch 5/11/17
The first 'magic moment' awards were handed out to Victor Liyanage and Maximilian Toettcher, well done boys!
These awards are handed out for players who do something different, a skill, save a penalty, a goal saving tackle...............In Victors case he broke his glasses defending before going up the other end and scoring a goal!
It was also our long awaited 1st home match which also bought about a much needed tea bar run by the under 7 parents!
After a slow start today going down by 1 goal the team pulled themselves back to win the game with an astounding score.
Well done to all and especially the players of the day Liam Hamill and Charles-William Collins.
Thanks to all the parents that made the trip out to our furthest away match of the season, I’m sure you agree it wasn’t wasted .
Special thanks must go to Guy who stepped up and help out with being a ref and a great one .
We had four great games . One epic 4-3 win and three narrow losses one at 1-0 .
As ever it’s not the scores that matter but this was a very close run weekend with multiple players hitting crossbars , posts , inside and out , goal line clearance and amazing saves and this was by there teams, I can honestly say we literally hit every part of all those goals and in any other weekend who knows ....
I’m really proud of both teams and they way they played and conducted themselves and we really played some great football and with some of the smallest goals I’ve seen and the biggest goalkeepers .
Training is back this Monday and then Friday at Dr C from 6.30 to 7.30 .
We don’t have a game next weekend as it’s Remembrance Sunday but we are back on the 19th at Home so will be closer for all of us.
I will let you all know the time of the kick offs.
After two weeks without training, due to the half term, the boys performed well and continued with their winning streak by winning both their matches today. Well done to all boys but especially Harry Pomfret and Callum Guerard who won 'Player of the Day' awards.

Chesham Generals U13 3-1 Windsor
After an earlier convincing win against Windsor , the boys were a little over confident at kick off ..... and saw themselves 1-0 down after 1 min !
Having pulled back a scrappy equaliser they ambled to a 1-1 half time scoreline , the only talk at half time was ‘ we told you so ! ‘ , but the 2nd half started with a quick goal for the Generals and a much improved performance saw the boys dominate the half and grab a third with 5 mins to go . As the boys learnt In the first half confidence is great ..... over confidence not so good !
Brillaint support as always And thank you to Nader for taking on Ref duties .
Man of the match : Saihaj Gill
Next Up : Windsor ( again ) away 15 th October
Wendover 1- 3 Chesham Generals under 13s
Our first away game of the season and the boys managed to come away with 3 well earned points , today's game was by far the toughest so far but the boys dug in and got the result .
They started well getting a 2-0 lead in the first half but Wendover fought back after the break and pulled a goal back , it was a really close contest with both teams creating chances but they managed to score a 3rd with 10 mins to go to take off some of the pressure . Two excellent individual goals and one from a corner ( extremly rare for us !) and some resolute defending saw them through and they are now Top of table with 3 wins from 3 .
Next up Windsor at home in the Cup
Windsor Hawks 0-5 Chesham Generals u13s
An early start saw the Generals put in a good performance away at Windsor , without one of our key defenders today the boys played some good football in a new Formation .
Great support as usual and the win sees the boys Top of table with a 100% record .
man of the match : Ted Smare
Next up : Stokenchurch away Sunday 22nd
The winning streak continues, winning both games today.
There was some fierce opposition in one of the matches but we stood our ground and were not going to be beaten/intimidated by this. Well done to all the boys who played.
After winning their previous 2 league game the blues went into this match on a high and were expecting to win.
From the very first minute it looked like this would be the case. The early tactics of dominating possession and playing through the wings looked like it was going to pay off. Hana and Rayyan were playing the ball out from the back, and Ethan and Luca were terrorising the Beaconsfield defence on the wings. Luca with raw pace and Ethan using his trickery on the ball.
Despite dominating, goals were yet to come, and Beaconsfield certainly had a threat up front with their powerful centre forward.
It was however the blues who struck first with a cross/shot from Josh just bouncing into the corner of the goal. The ball travelled through the goal but the referee rightly awarded the goal despite some confusion.
Beaconsfield were not down and out from this though. They replied with a solo goal from their powerful striker who ran half the length of the pitch and unleashed a rocket into the top corner. We weren’t to know at this stage, but this was all that Oliver would have to deal with all afternoon.
Just before half time came to a close it was Chesham who would go into the break on top, when Makise capitalised on a loose ball and rifled in a low shot to the corner of the goal.
It was only 2-1 at half time but we looked comfortable on the ball, and the team were told to push on for a more convincing win in the second half. Early intentions of dominance came to fruition with 2 goals early on in the half. Firstly, it was Antony who continued his scoring form with another well taken goal, and secondly Josh bagged his second of the match with a well-placed 30-yard free kick that lobbed over the keeper and into the net.
We decided to push Bella up front for the rest of the match and it paid off for her. A cross came in from the left and Bella managed to get to the ball before their keeper did, and earned her first goal of the season.
All in all, it was a good performance, and the 5-1 score line probably flattered Beaconsfield more than Chesham.
Thanks to those who turned out today. Every child played as well as they could and the performances were very good but we were up against a very good team which has won every game this season and was just a bit quicker and a bit stronger at times. Thanks to Ed, George and Harry for joining us from the Saturday team and Charles who stepped up superbly from the U9s.
As you may be aware, that was my last game in charge. I was very touched by the sendoff at the end and I hope everyone continues to give Scott as much effort and support as they’ve given me right from the start.
Scott will now be your main point of contact. The next game isn’t until Nov 5th after half term.
