Players, parents, coaches and spectators were making the most of the sunny weekend as we head towards the rainy season standing pitchside underneath an umbrella! Long may the ☀️ continue and keep the 🌧️ away!
We had a number of teams still playing their first league matches and it’s great to see our teams out there representing MK City FC in the new kit! Love seeing those pics!
Reminder – in accordance with FA rules we do not publish the results of teams participating in U7 to U11 games.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.
Saints (U8) were up early for their first league match against a formidable Moretonville Junior U8 Wanderers. It was a tough game but the boys played really well. Vivaan U was man of the match due to his fantastic effort on the pitch plus stepping in to play in goal when needed.
Lions (U16) unfortunately lost 0-3 to Great Linford Avengers. Lions had a great second half preventing Great Linford from getting any shots on goal but we couldn’t quite get the finishes to pull the game back.
Pearls (U8) played away to Bedford Girls. Great effort by both teams with some fantastic goals scored by Pearls.
Crystals (U18) visited Woburn & Wavendon Lionesses on Saturday in an U18 division 2 match, with four players missing due to illness and injury. The hosts Woburn had a full squad to choose from.
Crystals took the lead mid way through the first half, Rozalia Zycinska lifting the ball over the advancing keeper after a lovely move and through ball from Ella Barber. Woburn equalised from a corner a few minutes later, bobbling around the 6 yard box and poked home just as the Crystals keeper was about to gather. Crystals regained the lead just before the break, with a lovely move started from a goal kick, played out short to the left back Aaliyah Lewis, up the line, where it was controlled and a lovely turn and pass over the top by Hermione Hilton, sent Rozalia through again who made no mistake, scoring her second.
It was an end to end second half, but Woburn eventually equalised with about 20 mins remaining, a powerful shot took a slight deflection and left the Crystals keeper Molly Norman with no chance. Even with only having 12 players, 1 sub, it was Crystals who looked most likely to take all the points, squandering a couple of late chances and a late linesman flag going up as Hilton rated through on goal… where was VAR?
Both teams settled for a point and a massive well done to the girls, in hot conditions and missing a few players, getting a good result.
Lightning (U9) played two friendly games in four days and put on a brilliant display in both.
On Tuesday evening, MK United hosted MK City and the boys were quick off the mark putting on a superb show in the first half of the game, MK United fought back after the break and it turned out to be a classic end to end encounter.
There was so much effort put in by the Lightning that the boys were exhausted by the time the final whistle wen. Superb goals from James and Liam and some vital saves made by Alfie.
Well done to the players of the match Mason and James
On Saturday the Lightning travelled over to Walton in very hot conditions, Ligntning again got off to a fast start before Walton fought back into the game and at the break it was a very even encounter.
Second half the Lightning hit top gear and played some great football, it was a delight to watch at times, well done to goal scorers Taylor, Barney, Harrison and James
Man of the match was Harrison and special mentions to Mason and Barney
Thanks to MK United and Walton for being perfect hosts.
Jets (U11) fought hard today against Flitwick Eagles U11 Whites at home. They are a very well established and experienced team and we put up a really good performance. Great goal by Eloise with an assist from Aiva.
Player of the match was Eloise but the whole team performed well. We’re so impressed in how far the team have come in a few months. Well done girls! 👏
Tiger’s Eye (U14) – Still buzzing from their win last week, the Tiger’s Eye travelled to Flitwick with 3 key players missing.
Flitwick came out stronger but the Tiger’s Eye defence was as solid as always. The breakthrough came just before half-time from captain Chyan.
Caitlyn netted twice in the second half making it 3-0. Teagan put in a great performance in the midfield, chasing every ball, a well deserved winner of the managers player award.
Goalkeeper Kacey pulled of some important saves and her great goal kicks earned her two assists. This was noted by the opposition who awarded her the opposition player of the match.
The parents chose Caitlyn as their player of the match. The whole team pulled together and played their hearts out on a very warm morning.
Men’s Saturday Team won their Derby game away to Bletchley Scots. Started with only 11 available with 3 more getting there after kick off.
City started brightly with Mark Summerlin open the scoring on 5 mins.
Scots pushed forward for 10 mins as the heat affected the boys. Scots scored on 15 mins to make it 1-1.
The cavalry arrived with 25 gone and we brought on Hurley and Hayden Fullilove and the boys started to really control the game. Summerlin added his second on 35 minute.
City dominated the remainder of the game adding 2 more in second half with free kicks from Hurley and Homer. Chances went begging for Summerlin to get his hat trick and Vinny Fullilove was unlucky not to add to the tally.
All in all a good performance on a hot day and very bobbly pitch.
Ambers (U11) played away to Woburn and Wavendon Clarets, a good team. Ambers came away with a well earned result with a great solo goal coming from Natasha. Mayzie our goalkeeper got girl of the match for making some fantastic saves and keeping us in the game.
All the girls worked super hard and played some excellent football in the heat. ⚽🏃♀️💪
