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.

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.

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.
