Postponed Games Due To Inclement Weather

The last two weeks have seen the Raynes Park Little League called off. The recent weather has led to frozen and waterlogged pitches (see pic below) with weeks (14.01.17 and 21.01.17) being affected. The league will try whenever possible to get the games played but the most important factor is the safety of the kids.

Each week the league committee inspect the park to make sure the pitches are in a safe and playable condition. Once again the league will be looking at the pitches this week to make sure the games can go ahead.

If you have any questions please get in touch with your child’s manager to see if the games are on or alternatively, you can contact a league official (details on the website).

Dynamos Win One Day Cup

raynes

Dynamos 3 v 0 Arrows
raynes
The sun was shinning the grass had been cut, the new senior goals were out for all to see, the scene was set for the 2016 Senior One Day cup.
raynes
The competition was set out into two groups of three with the winners of each group competing in the final for the covered trophy. All games were fiercely competed with all six senior teams well represented but after a long morning of football the Arrows emerged winners of group A and the Dynamos were winners of group B after a scintillating group decider against the Sabres.
raynes
The final kept the theme of the morning with some great football being played but the turning point came mid way through the first half when the Arrows looked sure to take the lead but the ball came back off the crossbar breaking to the Dynamos who went up the other end and took the lead against the run of play. But from that moment on there was only going to be one winner with the Dynamos adding another two to win 3 – 0.
raynes
Huge congratulations to all teams who took part especially the Dynamos managed by Barry Palmer who has doubted his own ability recently and questioned the long standing partnership with Richard Oliver who I understand was in contact throughout the morning via video link. This reinstates the duo as the most successful partnership the senior league has ever seen and a great example to all new managers that with the right commitment and positive attitude you can achieve great things.
raynes
Finally a big thank you to Sam Lampton the Senior secretary for organising a great competition and arranging the weather.
Well done all!!

Raynes Park LL Girls Champions

The Fantastic Girls Team & coaches
raynes
On the 21st May 2016 West Sutton LL organised an all girls tournament to be held at Cheam Recreation Ground. This was a great opportunity for Raynes Park to put together a team from across the Bantam and Junior sections. So after many phone calls and one training session we set off to the tournament.
raynes
Th weather on the day couldn’t have been better, and after setting up our camp and with the girls looking great in their national kit we approached the first game against West sutton (reds). It was a cautious start with the girls getting used to tournament football of 4mins each way, the score ended 0-0. 
raynes
The second game came quickly against West Sutton (blue) which saw us net our first goal with the game ending in a 1-1 all draw. We new we had the makings of a good team and with a little inspired goalkeeper change the girls went from strength to strength conceding only one goal in their remaining 5 matches which came in a nail biting 2-1 semi final win over West Sutton (blue). 
raynes
So on to the final against Morden A 10mins of football that will stay with all the players and spectators forever two goals in the second half saw Raynes Park secured the victory and Raynes Park Little League were crowned champions deservedly so playing seven games without loss and conceding two goals, a fantastic performance from the whole team and a memorable day out for all concerned.
raynes
Congratulations to: Erin, Poppy, Sophie, Ruby, Ruby B, Millie, Isabella, Annie and Cassie.
raynes
Also a special mention goes to two senior girls who joined in on the day to compete in the senior tournament with Eva picking up a R/U trophy and Lia just missing out.

U10 National Champions Again

Raynes Park
thumbnail_IMG_0180 On the 2nd of July 2016 saw the 10th U10 national tournament take place at Goals soccer centre at Sutton. As usual, this year Raynes Park were able to enter two strong teams with the added pressure of being holders of the trophy.The tournament kicked off under glorious sunshine with both teams doing well in their respective groups with both qualifying for the knock out stages which saw Raynes Park I draw Carshalton in the quarter finals a team that had previously drew with in the group stage. This time it was to be different outcome with Raynes park winning 4-0 to be the first to secure a semi final place.Raynes Park II faced a tough encounter with Clapham LL, it was to be a bruising encounter with both teams giving their all, but eventually Raynes park proved to be the stronger and ended up 4-2 winners and progressed to the semi final.The excitement of both teams reaching the semi final was suppressed slightly when the news filtered through that for the second year running the two teams from Raynes park would once again face each other in the semi final. The result seemed to to say that one team was better than the other with Raynes Park II winning by 6 goals to 3, but ethereality was that one team took all their chances whilst the other was inches away. Both teams had performed way above expectations and now we had a chance to retain the trophy in the final against a very strong Kingston team.thumbnail_IMG_0205This year saw a change to the format with the final being played over two equal 10 minute halves which would test both teams of their energy levels and desire to win. The game kicked off with Kingston looking like the dominant team playing some great football which saw them take an early lead which they would keep to half time. At the interval the players received an inspired team talk from their managers Sam Lampton and Mark Elston reminding the guys that they had worked so hard to get to the final, that it was time to relax, use their heads and go and play great football.The team talk seem to do the trick as the second half was all Raynes Park which saw them equalise half way through, this seemed to re-energise Kingston who looked like they may come back into the game, but RP were playing some great football at this stage but time was against them, the clock was ticking ever closer to penalties with possibly only one more opportunity before the final whistle. That opportunity fell to Raynes Park and with what turned out to be the last kick of the game scored the winner. A 2-1 victory against a very good Kingston team over twenty minutes of 5-a-side football was a fantastic achievement and a memory that will stay with all concerned for a very long time. Both sets of players behaved impeccably and were a credit to Raynes Park Little League. Congratulations to……….. Well done to all!!

Christmas Match

Festive fun between the managers and parents this Christmas http://www.raynesparklittleleague.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/IMG_3780.jpg Every year as the festive season enters overdrive – the Raynes Park Little League, as in time honored tradition, take part in a fundraising Christmas charity match. The Senior managers (who have been harshly treated over recent years) take on the Junior managers ‘mercenaries’ , the Bantam managers and a group of parents for the coveted Colin Higbee Trophy. The league would like to invite all the Raynes Park Family along to help support us on this day (Saturday 19th 9.30am – Noon) with adults wishing to take part contributing with a minimum of 5 pounds. All the proceeds go back into the Raynes Park Little League coffers which in turn helps us to pay for new kits, equipment and goals etc. Each team plays the other teams once on the senior pitches: The Juniors – who rather controversially – won last year at the expense of the Seniors, will be looking to regain their crown. The league would like to wish everyone the very best of luck for the weekend and a very merry Christmas to everyone over this festive time of year!

A Christmas Raffle With Fun Prizes Will Take Place at 12.15.

Forwards Win Senior League Title

image002 Forwards 2014/15 Senior Champions The Forwards have recaptured the Senior League title for the first time since 2009/10 after defeating the Sabres in a thrilling league play-off final. The Sabres had a very strong first half of the season coming out on top and looking like the team to beat. However, in an extraordinary set of circumstances, where three different teams could win the second half of the league, it was the Forwards who came out on top to set up this mouth watering finale. In a game that ebbed and flowed – with plenty of fine football, goal attempts and nail biting moments it was a late Sabres goal that forced extra time after a thrilling game – in normal time – ended 3-3. With the light and temperature dropping in extra time, it was the Forwards that found an extra gear to score the winning goal and become the 2014-15 senior League Champions. Many congratulations to all the boys and coaching staff led by Dan Bansept and Mark Huttler. Many commiserations to the Sabres led by Rob Dean and Stephen Baptise. What a final and what a great advertisement for the Raynes Park Little League.

The annual Christmas match takes place this Saturday with the Bantam managers taking on the Junior managers, Senior managers and Parents in a three game league tournament.

We’d like to invite all the Raynes Park Little League family to come along and support their managers, parents and league…   The First kick off is at 9.30am See you all there!!!! index ………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Ospreys Win Junior League

Congratulations to the Ospreys led by Sam Lampton and Guido Dallolio for winning the first half of the Junior League season. The Ospreys, who won the first half of the season last year, clinched top spot after winning ten of their eleven league games. They will be looking to go one better this year and bring home the Junior League title by winning the second half of the season after narrowly being pipped to last years trophy by the Imps. The Giants and the Bombers also had a very good first half of the season as they finished second and third respectively but the Ospreys seem the team to beat. Well done to the Ospreys!

Sabres Beat Jaguars To Finish Top

sabres 2015 Congratulations to the Sabres led by Rob Dean and Stephen Baptiste for winning the first half of the Senior League season. The Sabres, who are looking to win the league for the second time in three years, clinched top spot by defeating the Jaguars in the final league game and were pushed all the way by the undefeated Arrows who had also won to put pressure on the light blues. With both the Forwards and the Monarchs just behind the top two, the second half of the Senior league promises to be very tight and hugely exciting. Well done the Sabres!!!

Junior Penalty Shootout

On a day when the Junior League raised £369 towards the Raynes Park Little League  coffers, we must congratulate all those players that took part on a wonderful day at our beloved park. As everybody knows, RPLL is a non profit organisation run on the generosity and hard graft of many volunteers, parents and sponsors who give up their Saturday mornings each week to allow kids to play football in a safe and fun environment. Days like today help fund this and we’d like to thank everyone who has kindly donated towards their kids participation.   On the day we have awards for both the winners and runners up of both the year 5 and year 6 tournaments. Many congratulations to those below for their medals and superb penalty taking skills!!! penalty shootout Juniors 2014-15 2

Arrows Win First Trophy

Arrows Win Senior One Day Cup

IMG_0934 Arrows lift the special trophy outside our pavilion r Congratulations to the Arrows led by Andy Green and Paul Taylor for winning this years One Day Cup competition. On a miserable day at the park – with the biblical rain drenching all before it – the Senior One Day Cup was played out with a new 9v9 format. Introduced this season by the Senior committee, managers and secretary Mick Browne, the new structure involved full teams with compulsory half time substitutions. The games itself were exciting and full of drama with the winners and runners up of each group going through to contest the semi finals. Just like last year, the final was played out by the Arrows and the Forwards. However, that was far as the comparisons go because, unlike last year, where the Forwards won the cup in swashbuckling fashion, this years final was very close with both teams trying to play good football in front of the on-watching crowd. As the game went to penalties after a hard fought 1-1 draw, it was the Arrows who took the spoils to win the One Day Cup and add it to their Plate Trophy success of last year. Congratulations to all that took part and helped arrange a very successful, fun and wet day down at the Raynes Park Little League
