Saturday 8th October: Week 5


On a dry, autumn morning, the majority of matches featured our internal cup competitions.

Under 16 Cup

Lenches and Alcester Town Juniors served up a cup cracker as the match was a very even encounter throughout. Leo Fleming hit a goal in each half for Lenches but each time the visitors hit back to tie the score. With 7-minutes remaining, James Elwell's long throw into the Town box was handled and the referee pointed to the spot. Connor Wagstaff stepped up and calmly put the ball into the right hand corner of the net to put Lenches 3-2 up and despite some late pressure from Alcester, the hosts held on to go through to Round 2.

As the school half-term break approaches, any teams that wish to bring forward a match should make contact with perspective opponent's  a soon as possible. This may ease the pressure of likely postponements during Dec / Jan / Feb. If your team does re-arrange a match, then please remember to notify Dave Hyde in advance so that he can update the system.


In some age groups you will see that fixtures have already been scheduled up to Saturday 28th May, which is the last date that matches can take place for this season. With more postponements expected due to unfit pitches, this may result in many fixtures having to be scheduled for midweek, so to avoid player availability & travel issues, please make every effort to utilise any open dates you may currently have.
