Junior Teams Catch-up
Whilst there’s not too much to report in terms of results at such a young age, it’s worth shouting out that the club now have teams from as far down as Primary School foundation age and are always looking for new players and coaches. We currently have around 15 kids out there each week and they are doing really well for a such a young group.
The Kibworth u7s Tigers and Falcons have started their debut season with some stylish displays and massive determination. The Tigers have only lost twice all year and have delivered some lovely displays of passing football. All players have contributed in equal measure and the coaches definitely think that we have the best celebrations in the county. All in all a great start from everyone involved.
All three teams have grown as the season progresses, and continue to attract more and more players. Training is as lively and challenging as ever, which we’re seeing translated into some positive performances across all teams on Sundays.
Under 12 Girls
The U12 girls have come a long way since the season started. We only had 5 registered players at the start of the season and had to postpone the start until we recruited some more players - we now have 15 girls coming to training every Tuesday night.
For many it has been their first season playing football, it has been a mixed season to date in terms of results with the team currently mid table having had a number of fantastic wins. They have played in wind, rain and snow and their enthusiasm and enjoyment of the game has never dropped.
All the girls have developed as footballers and as a team, they have all contributed and over the months have defined their roles and positions in the team. However Special mention goes to Primrose Hawes who has scored 23 goals so far this season.
The picture was taken at training with the girls wearing their new hoodies, which have been kindly sponsored by St Andrews College, Northampton, promoting their Mental Health Quality Mark for Schools.
Under 13 Eagles
After a tough 2017-18 season the Eagles found themselves in the 6th division of the Leicestershire Youth League. This was a much needed drop and coupled with the addition of a number of new players meant that they had an excellent first half of the season playing at the new level. The league had decided to split the seasons into two halves with a mini season before and after Christmas.
Excellent wins were recorded away at Beaumont Town and Rothley and with a hundred percent home record it meant the boys went into the last game of the first mini season away at Croft needing a win to secure top spot. However, on a bumpy and muddy pitch the boys struggled to get going and a 5-4 defeat meant they had to settle for second place.
Finishing second meant the boys jumped up two levels to Division 4 and have found the going a little tougher at this higher level. However, an excellent 3-1 away at Thurmaston demonstrated what they are capable of and as long as they continue to train hard and play as a team there is lots to be got out of the remainder of this season. As ever the players and coaches have received amazing backing from the parents which is never taken for granted and fingers crossed there’ll be a few more things for us all to cheer about this season!
