We’re well and truly into the season now and our teams go from strength to strength. Whether it’s our younger teams getting out there and just playing for enjoyment to our older youth teams and adult teams in the competitive leagues, it’s great to see the number of players representing MK City FC! We applaud you all! 👏
Reminder – in accordance with FA rules we do not publish the results of teams participating in U7 to U11 games.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) roared into their first league match after a few friendlies. We can really see the team improving week on week and the team certainly came into their own in the second half of this match! We were a little short only having six players so the boys all worked their socks off!
Congratulations to Ryan as Man of the Match for really working hard on the pitch and being a fantastic team mate with supportive comments to all the team.
Well done to all their efforts today, Leo for a great goal, Rohan for some great saves, Rafael for a great tenacity and energy on the pitch, Teddy for some super long kicks up pitch creating opportunities for strikers and Alfie for pulling it all together in the midfield as captain!
Tiger’s Eye (U14) travelled to top of the league Leighton United Vixens, for what we knew was going to be a very tough game.
Leighton had some class players and MK City battled hard to contain them. The score didn’t reflect the strength and teamwork that Tiger’s Eye put in today.
The team eventually broke through with a goal from Captain Sophie and Caitlyn soon followed with number 2.
For the second week running Goal keeper Kacey received opposition’s player of the match as despite the score line she did make some great saves and her goal kicks always impress.
Alex was as reliable as always in defence and received the parents award. Amelie was outstanding, playing in whatever position the manager requested her to, and was awarded manager’s player.
Leighton United Vixens – 12
MK City FC Tiger’s Eye – 2
Panthers (U16) starting this season with a big squad of 17 turned out to be a good thing as today we only played with 11 players. This meant we had no subs as players were missing for various reasons.
The boys put in a shift and played with nothing but passion and secure the first three points of the season, well done Panthers under 16s and keep up the good work!
Crystals (U18) travelled away to Luton today to play Luton Celtic Youth. It was an excellent game, end to end, in which Crystals took the lead in the first half after a ball from Megan Pugh was converted by Rozalia Zycinska, to take a 1-0 lead into the break.
The second half was very similar in terms of the flow of the game but unfortunately Luton Celtic Youth equalised with an unfortunate own goal from a corner. The game ended 1-1, and Crystals proved again that they can hold their own at this level.
Hawks (U16) beat Old Bradwell U16 3-0. It was a 9:30 am kick off and just a few minutes into the game Imran scored our first goal. In the second half Keanan Allman added a second goal from a left footed shot.
The Hawks dominated the game in the second half and finished it off with a third well worked goal from the right flank. The third goal was scored by Raymond Asare who delivered at close range from a pass from Taye.
Lightning (U9) got their MKDDL league campaign off to a electrifying start with a visit from near neighbours the Shenley Panthers.
Both teams were evenly matched throughout the whole match, all players showing a considerable amount of skill and and an abundance of good sportsmanship.
The spectators enjoyed this match which turned into a tactical battle, with both sets of players changing and adapting to different formations, very impressive for U9 players.
Goal scorers today for Lightning were Liam and Mason, with the man of the match award going to debutant Theo.
Thanks to Simon for officiating the game superbly and to Shenley for being great opponents.
Well done Lightning ⚡️
Pearls (U8) played away to Woburn in a very equally matched game. Pearls had a solid defence and dynamic passing play back up the pitch. Great work by all today!
Sapphires (U12) played their third league game of the season. Despite a great hat trick from Ava Martuccio and a goal from Shania Ismail they ended up losing 5-4 in a very eventful game.
The City girls played some great football and we’re very unlucky not get something from the game.
Hawks had a grading game today against in the U18 Beds Division. U18 Hawks against U18 Wingrave Juniors.
We were under pressure from the start, for the first 20 minutes. But broke on the counter attack a few times and by 25 minutes were 0-1 up. A sloppy foul lead to them scoring a superb free kick 1-1 before half time.
The Hawks kicked it up a level and scored 2 in the first 5 minutes. Dominated the half and then scored another 2. It’s a was like a cup final with everyone giving it 110%, chasing dead balls down and committing themselves.
Final result 1-5. A super win!
Jets (U11) played away to Aylesbury United L&G Greens. Some really good goals from Kitty, Martha and Aiva in a difficult game. Our keeper Florence was kept very busy all game and she also girl of the match.
Men’s A Team had a solid performance from the entire team today. It was a tight game in the first half and we defended solidly and grabbed a goal on the counter to go in 1 nil up at the break.
Second half we took more control of the game created more chances while staying solid at the back. A couple of decent saves from Robbie ensuring a clean sheet and into the next round of the cup.
MOTM – Jonny, at times seemed like there was more than one of him on the pitch, won every header and countless interceptions and clearances.
Men’s Saturday team match was unfortunately postponed as was Saints (U8) match but we look forward to them playing these matches in the future!
