Games Called Off

Due to the adverse weather conditions this morning, this weekends Bantam fixtures have been cancelled. The league and Bantam League Secretary Paul Saxby felt, with the best interests of the young kids, that the weather was not good enough for the kids to play football.

Fingers crossed the weather will start to improve soon so the kids can play their football in the sunshine once more.

NEW 15.12.2012 League Fixtures

Filed under: Bantam News, Junior News, Senior News by: Little League

Rearranged Fixtures Next Week

 

 

An extra week of matches have been penciled in for the 15.12.2012 in response to the League losing three consecutive weeks due to poor weather. The Managers vs Parents match originally scheduled for this day has been moved back to the 22nd of December.

 

Ken & Paul repair Pitch

 

With the cancellation of matches again this weekend the league Committee have decided to try and recoup a week with the league matches extended to the 15.12.2012. Many managers today spent time at the park re soiling parts of our 6 pitches that were boggy and saturated with water. Along with sand bags the pitches are now in a better condition and the hope is now the next two weeks of football, weather provided, should go ahead…

Dutch Tournament 2012

Filed under: Bantam News, Junior News, Senior News by: Little League

Raynes Park Excel in Dutch Tournament

 

Wimbledon Little League’s Yearly Dutch Tournament Was A Roaring Success For Raynes Park Little League With Three Runners Up And One Winners From The 5 Age Groups Entered…

May 19th, 2012 will live long in the memory for those at Raynes Park Little League after a hugely successful season ended on a high. With 5 age divisions entered (years 3 – 4&5 – 6&7 – 8 and our girls) competing against strong local teams such as Wimbledon LL, Morden LL and those from Holland, the tournament promised to be an exciting and challenging day for the boys and girls taking part.

Year 3

The year 3’s led by John Rebbit and Rob Dean did phenomenally well. They won 6 and drew 1 of the seven games they played in and narrowly lost out as winners on goal difference. Speaking to Rob afterwards he had nothing but pride for his boys, “They were fantastic today, a real credit to the league and themselves… it was a great day out and the boys loved it”

John Rebbit & Rob Deans Year 3 Heroes

The Girls

The Girls coached by Cliff Wilson did very well in their matches against well organized and accomplished sides from our Dutch counterparts. Although they did not win the tournament, the girls had a thoroughly good time and speaking after the matches Paul Saxby, a RPLL representative on the day, had this to say, ” Cliff did a great job today – you could see they were playing against girl teams that play together regularly but to their credit, their heads never dropped and they were fantastic in their attitude – they were brilliant”.

 

 

Years 4 & 5

Dan Bansept led years 4 & 5 to success in their tournament as they defeated all before them, 7 from7, to bring back the trophy for Raynes Park. A great achievement for all the boys that took part. The team played some lovely football and proved to strong for their Dutch opponents.

 

Years 6 & 7

The year 6 & 7’s coached by Ken Pople and Bob Lyons did a marvelous job in their runners up spot, narrowly missing out on winners medals by goal difference. Once again the boys did the league proud with a string of great performances against their Dutch opponents winning 5, drawing 1 and losing 1 to Morden. Bob Lyons had this to say about his side, “They were magnificent today, all the boys gave it their all and were excellent. They were great to coach and both Ken and I thought they thoroughly deserved not just their runners up spot but to win it”
