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.

A great turnout for a joint training session for the Saturday and Sunday U11 teams under the lights at Challenors this evening which included a very competitive match !

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

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.
