Our under 10’s girls played in a girl’s under 10’s and 11’s 5 a-side tournament. They topped their table in the group stages against the other under 10’s teams, and then beat under 11’s teams in the knock-out stages to reach the Cup Final. A fantastic achievement. Well done!
Come and Play for the Ashwell Accies
There is a real buzz around women’s football at the moment, and it’s a really exciting time to be getting involved, especially with the rise of the Women’s Super League, the Lionesses doing so well in this year’s Women’s World Cup, and the recent announcement that the Women’s Euros will be held in England in three years’ time.
We currently run mixed teams in most age groups, with the focus very much on having fun, team spirit, and getting as many children involved as possible. However, many of our age groups also regularly take part in Girl’s tournaments, and if we are lucky enough to have enough girls in an age group it would be really exciting to also be able to consider entering in girl only leagues.
Our Under 10 Girls have recently had great success in the Buntingford 5 a-side tournament where they topped their table in the group stages, and reached the Cup Final against an under 11 team with girls a whole year older than themselves.
If you are interested in joining any of our age groups, please check out our team pages, and contact our friendly coaches to find out more.
Congratulations to all our Accies at the 2018/19 Trophy Night
Despite some very dodgy weather in the run-up to the event, This years Trophy Night was again a massive success. Despite heavy ran all day, the clouds parted and the Sun came out just in time to fire the BBQ up. We heard some fantastic reports about how well our Accies had performed this season, and all the kids had a great time having a kick around with their friends. All players from all year groups received trophies, including some very special trophies such as player’s player, manager’s player, most improved, and Accies Accie. We have all had an amazing season, and it was a perfect way to end on a high.
We also gave our players a chance to donate old kit to be re-used within the club, and pass on to charities who help underprivileged children and adults in some of the world’s poorest countries. Thank you to everyone who brought along boots, shirts, shorts, socks, shin pads, and coats …it was a fantastic response. More news on this to follow.
It was also great to see the effort we all made to recycle our cans, plastic, food, paper, and glass on the night …a great initiative set-up by the Under 16’s players and coach. The Accies Go Green!
Sadly, we also said good-bye to our long serving committee, who without their unwavering hard work and support the club would not be where it is today. However, this also meant we welcomed our new committee who have already been extremely busy getting to grips with their responsibilities, and we look forward to the coming seasons with them.
Thank you to everyone that supported and helped us, and we are all looking forward to an equally fun and successful 2019/20 season.

The U8s had their first ever girls match last weekend against PSG Saffron Walden. It was a very entertaining affair and the two sides were evenly matched; in the end Ashwell had too much fire power and won 5-2, with the goals spread around the team. Everyone had lots of fun and are looking forward to the next match.
The new season is up and running. Our Under 10’s and Under 11’s were both in action at small gains on Sunday morning.
