The theme of this weekend was certainly PRIDE. We were so proud of all our teams, whether it was the respect they showed at the start of the game with a 1 minute silence for Remembrance Day or the outstanding display of teamwork and sporting attitude we see in all of our games. Well done to all the players, managers, coaches, parents, referees and supporters. 👏
Reminder – in accordance with FA rules we do not publish the results of teams participating in U7 to U11 games. We celebrate effort, teamwork and participation in the younger teams.
Tigers (U7) sponsored by DH Construction
Genuinely so proud of the team today. They played amazingly together and it is getting harder and harder to pick man of the match each week. Today was the first official outing for Fraser who deservedly was this week’s man of the match with an outstanding hat trick. The pairing between Frankie and Fraser at the front was brilliant and you could see how well they looked for each other, made space and hit the back of the net. Some amazing goals from Frankie too!
Ryan and Luca were great in the middle and did a great job holding the other team back during the third quarter. Defence was strong in this game; Teddy’s power kick from the back was fantastic and Tanush did a great job of working to keep it together in the middle. As usual, goalkeeper Rohan was awesome with some brilliant saves.
JAGUARS (U12) Sponsored By MATRIX
The Jaguars traveled to Tattenhoe FC for their 5th league game of the season.
After a well-observed minutes silence, the game started at a very fast pace. With both teams playing some good attacking football the action was end to end until the breakthough – the Jaguars took the lead after King pounced on a loose ball in the box and placed the ball neatly into the top right corner. The game restarted and the fast pace continued with both sides looking to gain some early goals but barely 60 seconds had passed before Tattenhoe took advantage of a defensive error to score an equalizer. Another restart and some more quick football with chances missed by both sides until some good passing play put Tattenhoe through on goal and they finished well again. 2-1 at half-time but a very even game so far!
The 2nd half started much as the first half ended. Quick football, counter-attacking play, some great defensive challenges and decisive through balls. 6 minutes in and Tattenhoe took advantage of a loose ball in the Jaguars half to quickly shoot and score, 1-3. 10 minutes on and the game was still being played at a great pace but when the balled was played out to Lewis on the right of midfield he took the chance to have a shot and scored the Jaguars 2nd, 2-3. The Jaguars were spurred on by this and really put everything they had into the match. They came close to equalizing on a number of occasions but it was not to be – with less than 4 minutes left to play, Tattenhoe played a great through ball and they were able to finish in style.
The Jaguars lost this one 4-2 to a well organised Tattenhoe side who gave us a great welcome. The Jaguars took some time to reflect after the match and although the result wasn’t in our favour it certainly felt like a win for the manager and coaches. The whole squad has improved so quickly in such a short space of time and they are gaining valuable experience with every match they play. It’s only a matter of time before we find that first win but when it comes there will be a lot more coming with it.
We look forward to our next match and wish Tattenhoe all the best for the rest of their season.
Emeralds sponsored by White Star Memories
Great result for the Emeralds today, away from home beating Bedford Girls 3:1.
With only the one sub today, the girls battled with everything they had to secure them the win. In the first half we had a screamer from outside the box from Lucy Brimson, assisted by Katie Rayner. Followed by a perfectly placed goal from Mollie-Rose McCabe, assisted by Katie again.
The second half saw Bedford Girls grab themselves a really good team goal. However the girls’ heads did not drop, in fact they came back just minutes after with their third goal from Katie Rayner. Massive well done to Lucy Howard in goal for the Emeralds, some great saves and quick distribution to start attacks.
The girls really gave it their everything and came away with a well deserved win.
SAPPHIRES (U12) SPONSORED BY BQI
Sapphires couldn’t continue their recent good form, but it wasn’t for the lack of trying!
The first half was tight with both teams going close but no joy finding the net, 0-0 at half time.
Sapphires came out fighting second half and applied some good pressure, however they conceded against the run of play, an unfortunate own goal after a good ball in from a corner.
The girls kept going though and we’re very unlucky not to get an equaliser in the final 10-15 mins, Shania hitting the post and Mylee Ashby and Ava forcing good saves from the Berkhamstead goalkeeper and Amelie Taft going close.
Great performance from the girls again, deserved at least a draw but well done to Berkhamstead.

Saints U8s had an early morning travel to Northamptonshire county, for our match against Silverstone Racers U8s.
Before the match, both teams observed a 2 min silence to remember our fallen. All the players observed it very well and with Saints wearing poppies supplied by the club. Thank you to Karen Galbraith for arranging.
The match started on a high tempo from the Saints, with players playing to their positions and smooth passing. The training talk and pre match warm up was proving effective and in no time, we had great goals from Jude and Isaac. The 1st quarter ended on this note, with Saints having almost 70% possession.
In the 2nd quarter, Vivaan got a good touch near the opposition goal and the ball deflected in, off a Racers player’s foot. Racers also got a goal in and there were smiles all around.
In the 3rd quarter, we made substitutions to allow all our players to play and also accommodate the opposition, who had some real good players. At U8 level, it is all about enjoying the game with good sportsmanship and what better way to make it more engaging, than by allowing the opposition to have ball time. the move had immediate impact, with the game being played more evenly. Isaac and Daniel between them scoring fantastic goals, which were equally matched with goals from the Racers.
The 4th quarter was also an even quarter, with both sides playing end to end football. Lots of smiles on both sides in a well engaged match.
It was heartening to see Saints play like a well-formed team and at U8 level, taking the learnings from training into matchday was admirable. Here, special mention needs to made of our senior coach Neil Underwood, who has been helping out on our training and sharing some great insights. Your help is much appreciated Neil and is helping shape Saints wonderfully. Thank you!
Our player of the match today was Jude Warren, for his wonderful contribution upfront and in midfield. Jude’s adaptability and willingness to play effectively at different positions is a great asset to our team.

MK City ‘A’ 9 – 1 Tattenhoe Development
Solid performance today with only 12 players available, didn’t take our chances in the first half and went into the break 2-1 up, picked things up in the second half and started moving the ball should have probably scored more.

Rubys had a challenging away win 3-6.
The game very quickly moved to 3-3, before it settled and the Rubys gained better possession. They played some good football to walk away worthy winners.
