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
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.
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.
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.
