YOUTH ROUND UP – FEBRUARY 3rd/4th 2024
It was a bumper weekend of football….so here we go…

The Dynamos team didn’t get going at Beaconsfield and lost 2-0 in a disappointing match.
The U17’s Youth had a big victory in the Referees Cup Quarter Final, winning 3-1 against Hughenden Hawks. Going 1-0 down and at half time being at 1-1, the boys came out looking for the win and managed it. A hat-trick from Harley Borrett securing their place in the Semi-Final.
The Colts were again unlucky as they lost out 2-1 to Hughenden Ospreys. Keane Hutchings scoring direct from a corner…and then doing exactly the same a bit later…but ruled out for a foul. Shame.
The U16’s girls lost out 2-1 against 3rd place Harpenden Town in the league on Saturday. In an entertaining match, Saniya Khan scored the Dynamos goal, but they eventually lost out in a close match.
Woody’s U16’s Dynamos lost out 3-2 in a close match with Dunstable Town in the EJA league. Goals from Harry Norman and Levi Nicholson not enough to get any points.
The U16’s Colts had a tough match at Ruilsip Rangers, losing out 10-2 in the end.

Also in top spot are Paul Driscoll’s Dynamos team who sneaked a 1-0 win away at Flackwell Heath on Sunday. Another goal from a corner…this time Jack Masheder with the corner. Good effort and determination to not concede.
The U15’s Youth have made it to a semi-final as well this season as they beat Ickenham Youth in the quarter final of the June Rowland Memorial Cup, 3-1. Henry Kidnee was on target twice and an own goal meaning they are through to the Semi Final.
The Colts made it a clean sweep for the U15’s age group as Russell Harrison’s Colts swept aside Thame 8-0 in a thumping victory.
The U14’s Dynamos came away with a point in their home match against Windsor & Eton, drawing 1-1.

In another 8-0 win…the U13’s Dynamos asserted their authority over Crendon Corinthians with goals from Alfie (3), Kyle, Dylan, Rehan, Jake and Jayden.
The U13’s Youth lost out 2-1 against Ruislip Rangers in a tight match that could have gone either way.
The U13’s Colts managed a 2-2 draw with Maidenhead United. A particularly tough match with no subs meaning the boys had to play the whole game. Goals from Luke Fowles and Ali Benrakad securing the point.
The U13’s Girls Blue team lost out 6-2 to Kidlington Hawks.
The U12’s Dynamos went to Gerrards Cross for their league match and went in 1-0 up at half time. A strong second half saw them add another 4 goals to win 5-0. Leroy (2), long range goals from Eli and Will and final goal for Caleb securing the win.
After 3 victories on the bounce the U12’s Youth couldn’t make it 4 as they lost out 4-2 to a very good Hazlemere team. The boys now need to learn to “play to the whistle”…!
The U12’s Colts lost out 3-1 in a close match against FC Cippenham.
The U11’s Dynamos lost out 4-3 in a close match against Prestwood Colts.
Peter’s U11’s Colts continue their great form with a great 6-2 win over local rivals Aylesbury United. A poor start saw them go 1-0 down, but woke up and eventually ran out 6-2 winners. A man of the match performance from goal machine, Dorin Stamati, who scored 4 goals and was ably assisted by Oliver Defriez (3 in 3) and Cassius Lightfoot with a great individual goal.
The U10’s ran riot at Stokenchurch in their matches as they won all 4 games, scoring an impressive 21 goals doing so.
The U9’s Dynamos were missing a few key players against Chinnor, but still managed 2 wins and 2 losses in their games. With no subs available they fought well and deserved the 2 wins.
The U9’s Youth team had a tough game against Stoke Mandeville drawing 1 and losing 3 matches. There were some very entertaining matches and it was a tough physical match for the boys. They played well against a very strong team.
The U8’s had a mixed bag of results with a win, a draw and 2 losses in their matches against Stoke Mandeville. They put some nice passing together and are growing in strength each week.
Finally, the U7’s who managed an impressive 3 wins and draw against a very good Crendon Corinthians team. As a final note, it was a good day in the Defriez household as Olvier’s younger brother, Harry, got his first goal for the club on Sunday. Well done Harry !!!
