HYFC vs Crystal Palace

Haddenham Youth FC Under 11s: Futsal Tournament 2015

It was another great day out on 25th October for the 17 boys who participated in the 'Oxford Mail Futsal Tournament' at Oxford City Indoor arena. Haddenham U11s have visited the final on their last two visits and were hoping to do the same this time round again!

Out of a group of 10 teams, which included three from Haddenham, HYFC managed to finish 1st, 4th and 7th in the league table, which was a great achievement for the boys.

Unfortunately in the plate event, Haddenham lost to Bishop Cannings at the 'golden goal' stage, but it was still a great achievement for the boys who worked extremely hard throughout the day and played some great futsal along the way.

In the trophy event, it turned out to be a Haddenham vs. Haddenham semi-final which saw a good game played in the right spirit, a game which came down to missed chances. However regardless of who won, for the third time in a row,we had another Haddenham team in the Final!

It was an entertaining final against Radley, but the boys couldn't finish off the job against a good Radley side who deserved their win on the day. However, even with a defeat, the boys knew that it was a great achievement. They all played with smiles on their faces and enjoyed it, which is the most important thing.

Haddenham 11s vs. Crystal Palace Academy
U11s — 7th November 2015

A cold, wet and miserable day was predicted, but the nine boys had a great chance to prove themselves against the Premier League Academy Side of Crystal Palace.

The rain started pouring just before kick-off as we prepared ourselves to play against a Crystal Palace team who were fair but very aggressive in their play.

HYFC started the game well and took control early on, being 2-0 up in the first ten minutes. Palace realised they were up for a tougher match than they had obviously assumed, but they quickly changed gear and the match became a very exciting encounter.

Crystal Palace eventaully managed to win 9-7!!

Yet another great achievement by the boys, this team is growing from strength to strength. This team must be very proud of themselves. The coach Will Dodds is extremely proud of them.
