2004 2005 UNDER 10 White
Our success in winning the league in 2003/04 season and Cup finalists in the same year, coupled with a healthy Qualification for the round robins saw us placed in the Red division.
We had become victims of our own success. An opening day defeat away at the hands of Omonia, showed us what to expect in this division. We were going to have to learn fast, in an attempt to up our game.
The following Sunday 24th October saw us away again, this time at St Albans City West, where we earned a creditable 1-1 draw, our first point in this division.
Hadley Wood Herons were our first opponents at home, which saw us fall to another defeat, somewhat unfortunately, but again we were second best. Our next home game saw us entertain Whetstone Tigers, and by now we were feeling that you don't always get what you deserve in this division, a close encounter saw us lose again.
The boys were showing tremendous resilience in not letting heads drop and we were awarded our first victory in the division away to Abbots Youth on a wet dreary day.
We have since played away for all the remainder of games for this year, and are looking for a long run of home games in the new year, which we hope will lift us up the table. Sunday 12th December saw us play away on a bitterly cold day at our victors from the cup final, Hadley Rangers.
Our faith was re established when we gained a very creditable 0-0 draw from a team as yet undefeated in this division.
Our last game before the yuletide break, saw us away again, and our baptism of fire was complete with a heavy defeat at current leaders of this division Goffs Oak. the 5-0 scoreline did not do our boys justice, and the promising points to be taken out of the game was that we were close to scoring ourselves on more than one occasion, we turn the year with optimism and feel that we can still make an impact in this division in 2005.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
