SWYFC Football Tournament

Yesterday was the kids’ club’s football tournament. They were only doing age groups up to u10s, so Leo didn’t get to play.

Sadly, Archie’s team didn’t win any games. Jamie’s team won one, lost one and drew three. It was a bright sunny day but with a strong, cold wind. Brrr!

I’ve added a picture of Arch playing (number 9) and one of Archie’s team with the Reading FC mascot, Kingsley the lion…

Football Report (5th January 2013)

We had 2 matches today, the first of the 2nd half of the season.  Jamie’s match was cancelled as the pitch was waterlogged.  I took Leo to his match and daddy took Arch to his.

It was a good match, and SW started very well, but at half time were 1-0 down.  The first 1 minutes of the second half were the weakest point for the SW U11s and sadly 2 more goals were conceded.  They pushed and pushed for the rest of the 2nd half and in the final minute were able to cross a ball in that landed neatly at Leo’s feet….just inside the goal!  So although he didn’t actually score, his feet were there just in case.  So with a final score of 3-1, Leo was awarded “Man of the Match”.  Well done, Leo.

Meanwhile, at the same time in Bracknell, the SW U8s were also playing.  As I wasn’t able to watch, I was reliant on either an update via txt from daddy or a final score when we saw each other again.  At 11.53, imagine my delight when I got a text telling me that Archie had scored!  His first ever goal in a match…then a few minutes later his second!  Yay Archie!!!  The final score for SW U8s was 10-2!  Archie was awarded the “Pass Master” trophy by his coach, who is delighted with how he did.  Sadly I don’t have a photo of Arch with his trophy right now as he has gone to daddy’s house, but I will try to post one soon.

All in all, I am an extremely proud Mummy, and looking forward to the rest of the season.

PS Whilst waiting for Leo’s match to start, Jack and I were watching one of the goalies on another team warming up with his coach. When a ball came Jack’s way, he passed it back to the coach, who offered to sign him up 🙂

Jamie in Goal

Jamie in Goal

Jamie (aged 9) is in the process of organising a “Kick” (football) event for the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

Jamie’s Fundraising Page

Although we don’t have a date set yet, the event will involve a “friendly” football match between Jamie’s U10s team and the club’s U9s, followed by a “donate to take a penalty against Jamie”.  Jamie is very excited, especially because he had already raised £110 for this very worth cause.

Any donations, big or small, are warmly welcomed!
