In another County Cup match, the Under 12 North, who were due to play at home but due to a waterlogged home pitch the match was switched to the opponents ground at Everett Rovers. At half time the North were losing 4 – 0 but it must have been some half time team talk as the North came out in the second half and scored five goals to win the match 5 – 4. Louis Sampson led the way with four terrific goals and man of the match Ryan Corcoran scored the fifth goal. Manager Alison Curran said she needed some heart tablets to control the downs and the Ups of the match.

The Under 11 South played Broxbourne Borough Blues.


Under 10



The Under 10 Victoria finished a creditable 5th in the 'Indesit Road to Wembley' finals day played at Wembley Powerleague on Saturday 21st November.

Drawn in a tough group with the regional winners from Birmingham, London, Tyneside, Northern Ireland and Scotland the boys did brilliantly to win 2 and draw 1 of their opening games, before losing narrowly to London winners (and eventual finalists) Academy de Skillz to miss out by a single point on a semi-final place.

It was a fantastic day for the boys who won a place at the finals after winning the Hertfordshire regional tournament back in October. The day started with a team breakfast followed by a tour of Wembley Stadium where the boys got to taste life inside England's dressing rooms before having pictures in the Royal Box with the FA Cup.

This was a superb effort by our boys who demonstrated what great progress they have made in the last two years through hard work and skills development by playing futsal.


The Under 10 Victoria also played Abbots Youth and there were goals from Oscar Bell 2, Martin Flore, Benjy Stone, Archie Hobbs and Cameron Wilson. This was a brilliant performance from the team.


The Under 10 West played Welwyn Pegasus and the man of the match was Cody Smith.


The Under 10 Orient played Hatfield and there were goals from Callum Crowther and Jack McDonald. The star player for the Saints was George Ilari.


Under 9


The Under 9 North played Cheshunt Youth and there was a goal from Noah Butler.


The Under 9 South played Wheathamstead Tigers and there were goals from Josh Smith 2 and George Robertson. The man of the match went to Freddie Yeo for a great defensive performance as did James Beasley. The Saints keeper Ben Pearman also had a good match.


The Under 9 East played Hatfield Youth and there were goals from Tom Jennings 2, Liam Powell 2 (plus he was also named man of the match) and Will Antcliffe.


The Under 9 West played away at Little Gaddesden and in a very entertaining match there were goals from Jacob Nyamupingidza 3 and Rory Graham.


The Under 9 Orient played away to Hemel Aces, in a very entertaining match there were goals from Bertie Postema 4, Alex Hails 2, Dean Bladon 2 and Thomas Boca-Mapp. The man of the match went to Angus Kerr who was very good in defence.
