Tough morning for the under 7s, away at High Wych. The pitch was in a less than favourable condition which didn’t help the boys play their usual game, but they all got stuck in, leaving us parents with plenty of washing!! Harry for the oranges and Jack for the blacks were this weeks POTM, both were on the score sheet but also tracked back and got involved all over the pitch. Well done boys. Home fixture for us next week so bring on some sun and dry up these muddy pitches!!
Today the under 8s played Arlesey Town Youth U8 at home In a cold wind swept day! We played 2×20 min half’s, and we used 2 players in goal this week.

Player of the Match :- Alfie, For doing everything we asked from the start and for playing outstandingly. Star Player :- Cody P
The Under 13s were the visitors to top of the table St.Neots this week, and with players returning to the squad the team were in a confident mood going into the game. However it was the home side who started stronger, enjoying most of the possession and playing the majority of the opening 10 minutes or so in The Hares half. Despite this the visitors were able to soak up the early pressure and soon began to find their feet in the game, and on 15 minutes took the lead with an excellent long range effort from Joey Wedge who found the top right hand corner of the net from outside of the box to make it 0-1 to The Hares. Despite chances for both sides neither team could add to the score and The Hares went into half time a with the advantage. The second half couldn’t have started better for the visitors and within 3 minutes of the re-start George Clark didn’t give up on a ball that the keeper couldn’t control and slotted into an empty net to make it 0-2. With The Hares full of confidence it looked like there was only going to be 1 winner, but St.Neots managed to get themselves back into the game with a goal after some sloppy defending from The Hares. It was now the home side who were looking more likely to score, and sure enough they found the equaliser with 10 minutes remaining. Both teams had the opportunity to grab the winner but the game finished 2-2 with the teams sharing the points. Although The Hares couldn’t hold out for a win this was a much better performance by the boys than in recent weeks, and we became only the second team to take points off St. Neots this season. MOTM was hard to pick this week, with Barney O’Hara getting the final nod for a great performance at the back.
