Up For The Cup - 25th September

As always with the Cups, you get some ups and downs but on the whole we had some impressive performances:

The Under 12 s led the way with both teams progressing in the cups in dramatic style. Mel's Under 12's won on penalties in the League Cup against Walton from the league above whilst Bernie had a tense 5-4 win at local rivals KPR colts.

Trevor's Sheen Lions Under 14s earned an ironic tie with Sheen Lions Pride in the next round as they maintained their 100% start with a 4-0 victory against Corinthians.

The Under 15s had mixed fortunes with last year's League Cup Finalist Lions losing in extra time against a strong Kingston Juniors side whilst Dean and Sam's Under 15 Pride picked up their first win of the season with a convincing 8-1 win at Barnes Eagles Colts in the invitation cup.

Last weeks team of the week - David's Under 10 Pride continued their good form with a 3-1 win against Hampton Diamond and Terry's Under 13 Lions maintained their 100% start with a win against Surrey Predators

In one of the few league games Matt's Under 16 Pride side maintain their unbeaten start in the tough Under 16 Premier Elite with their third draw in 3 games against a strong Farnborough side.

TEAM OF THE WEEK has to be John O'Brien's Under 18s with a 3-1 League cup win against Kingstonian Youth from the Premier Elite. The 18's also maintain a 100% start.

THANKS to Sarah for getting storage space for nets and flags at Palewell Park. It will be a great help.

Round Up - 18th September

The 9 v 9 posts are up, the cafe is now open at Palewell Park and the sun continues to shine. Eight wins this week , and five draws amongst the 18 games played means another great weekend for the club.

The two U13 teams both continued their 100% winning records and it was good to see two wins from the U14s , particularly the Pride with a convincing 8-1 victory over local rivals Barnes Eagles.

The U18s and Under 10 Lions have made impressive starts to the season with their second wins in two weeks.

The Under 8's secured their first ever win in only their second game but TEAM OF THE WEEK is the Under 10 Pride who secured their first ever win with a 4-2 victory over Rocks Lane. Fully deserved for the persistence and hard work, over the last year.

The Invitation and League cups start next week so let's gets some Lions representation in the Finals again this year.

Remember to keep your web pages up dated and get your NEW TEAM PHOTOS on to the website and I notice nearly half the teams are starting to use the Notice Board functionality to provide squad details and match logistics. Please look at other age groups for guidance - it is very easy to do.


And we're off! Message from the Chairman.

The goals at Palewell are up and we are off! A big thanks to Sarah, our Club Secretary, for a herculean effort in getting the show on the road: Three hundred new match kits, three hundred registrations and the migration of 7 a side teams to Palewell plus getting pitches (including new 9 a side) ready for the big kick off on Sunday.

And what a great start! Out of 14 teams from U9 and upwards in action we managed to get 9 wins, a draw and only had 4 narrow losses. We scored 50 goals and let in just 25. Special mention goes to the U14 Lions and new manager Trevor Hodge for kicking off their campaign with a 10-0 win.

For the first time in many a season all teams are wearing the same kit and the new QPR navy hoops simply look great, as modelled by the U13 Pride in the photo.

Well done to all teams for such a terrific start to the 2011-12 season - we still have another 317 league fixtures and a minimum of 23 cup games to complete over 32 Sundays!
