A fantastic 1st season for the under 7's drew to a close with the 3rd annual Chesham United Youth Awards held at the football club.

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.

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.

Both of the Saturday U10 teams were on the wrong end of narrow score lines on Saturday.

Both worked very hard to level their matches before conceding late goals which produced results which didn’t really reward the effort and determination every player put in.

Both should be in action next Saturday at Woodside weather permitting in the final matches before the half-term break.

 

 

Today was the exact conditions that prove there should be a winter break in kids football, however the powers that be disagree so we travelled to Stokenchurch on a cold, wet and windy morning.

 

The Chesham players set to the task from the moment they arrived warming up with big smiles on their faces, hats on their heads and warm wolly gloves on their hands!

Coach Dave's team;

RESPECT handsakes done before kickoff Dylan showed some wonderful finishing whilst Maxwell took advantage of the oppositions goalkeeper being off of his line following a clearance, recieving the ball a full 20yards out he took one look a fired a shot past the retreating keeper for a memorable goal which won him the 'Magic Moment' award from coach Dave.

Andrew was giving his all on debut getting stuck in all over the pitch whilst Felix, Callen and Jansen were doint thier best Steven Gerrard impressions with some wonderful tacking, passing and running with the ball.

Referee John Badman did a fantstic job showing the sportsmanship Chesham United Youth FC adhere to, calling the game back for a drop ball after a goal due to a Stokenchurch player being hurt in a challenge seconds earlier. All the players took it on the chin and just got on with it, welldone! 

Agreeing with coach Ben below it was clear to see the difference the Futsal session of the previous week had made to the players!

Coach Ben's team;

It was clear to see some of the players take their futsal skills from last week into this game. Controlling the ball with the sole of your foot is a key futsal skill. It allows players to get their head up. It also allows for a more accurate and powerful pass from a static ball.
Another key discipline I saw this week was one player staying at the back. Our last player often stepped up to halt on-rushing Stokenchurch attacker. In one instance our last player made a tackle and dribbled through their entire team and goal keeper only to unluckily hit the post. It's great to see the progress the players are making; every player said they had great fun today.

They are giving their attention to the coaches. We are asking players to be Ready to play, in games and at practice. We want our players to show Respect to the other Chesham players and the opposition. We also want our players to be Safe. Staying on your feet at indoor practice, and ensuring you have your shin pads, in doors and for games are key parts of this.

 

Coach Ben's 'Magic moment' award was won by Euan.

 

Coach Paul's team;

Coach Paul took the buddy team in a home fixture against Downley Dynamos, in some very tight fixtures there was some fantasic performances all round!

 

Thank you to all of our parent's for your calm support today. Gentle encouragement and praising good play by both teams is always welcome and helps our players become good future decision makers.

The Blues travelled to Slough to meet Thames Valley Youth. Despite a first half comeback and a strong finish some inspired goalkeeping ensured a home win.

 

Well done to Aaron, Jake and Adam for their goals and to Matthew G for his captaincy.

It’s a home game at Woodside next week. Details to follow.

 

A fantastic morning of Futsal in a dry warm hall on a wet and cold day the under 7's played an in house tournament with 5 teams, playing in a round robin group which ended with 2 points seperating all 5 teams!

 

U7 Futsal 20 1 18

 

Playing the game on the floor with a heavier ball the players all adapted quickly and soon began showing plenty of deft touches, improving as the day went on the 2 magic moment awards were deservedly won in the final 2 matches.

Come the end there was plenty of tired legs and big smiles!

 

Next Sunday we're back on the grass but the next Futsal is already in the diary!

 

 

Both of the Saturday U10 teams enjoyed an unbeaten weekend in their Church League matches.

The Clarets held a strong Westwood Park 2-2 - an improvement on a heavy defeat to the same opponents in the autumn -  while The Blues worked extremely hard to eventually overcome Seer Green 2-0 with both goals coming in the final quarter. The team was captained superbly by Ilia and the goals from Matthew E and Jake were well deserved.

The Clarets will be training next Saturday while The Blues are away at Thames Valley Youth in Slough. Details of who is training/playing will come from Phil later this week.

 

u9&u8 together enjoying our first futsal tournament.  We learnt a lot about this fast paced game and had a lot of fun!

 

 2018 01 13 Futsal

A busy day for the under 7's with all 3 teams in action playing 6 very tight matches.

 

'Magic Moment' awards were tougher than ever to give out with so many moments! Eventually coach Ben handed his award to Lewis Taylor and coach Dave handing his to Arlo Parkin for their fantastic contributions against Widmer & Afc Lightening.

 

In the Prestwood fixture coach Paul also handed his award out after a couple of very tight fixtures.
