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.
We are all excited about a great season ahead
This years Trophy Night was a massive success. The weather was perfect, and all the kids had a great time having a kick around with their friends, while everyone else enjoyed the BBQ and Bar. There was also a set of stocks for the coaches which the children (and some of the parents) enjoyed throwing wet sponges at. All players from all year groups received medals or trophies, and there were special trophies including players player, managers player, most improved, etc. We have all had an amazing season, and it was a perfect way to end on a high.
Thank you to everyone that supported and helped us, and we are all looking forward to an equally fun and successful 2018/19 season.

Some members of the U7s squad took part in the St. Ives 5-a-side tournament on 3rd June.
They had a fantastic morning of football playing against teams from beyond our Royston Crow league. They put in a great team performance, playing in some exciting matches and having opportunity to demonstrate their skills!
Here they are receiving their medals to mark the occasion!
Well played Accies!

Following yesterday’s away result against FC Comets where we won 1-2, we have now secured the League Champions position with 2 games left.
The boy’s have all worked and played so hard in every match this season.
They have shown commitment throughout the year rain sleet or snow.
We have seen some fantastic football this season and they deserve to be league champions.
The main core of this team have been together for 10 years, and this is by far their best year.
We have two away game’s left and we’d all like to finish the season unbeaten.
Up the Accies.
Pat & Alan.
