Only one home game this weekend with most of our pitches at the Oakleaf, waterlogged , it was mainly the teams that travelled, who could restart after the festive break.
Belmont Robins 1 v 6 U11 Wildcats
A very good game after a long break and the team performed as if we’d never had one. The passing, moving and effort was outstanding from every player. A fantastic win, with goals from Phoebe, Lucy x 2 and a Nyah hat-trick. Amongst the goals were two team goals passing from back to front superbly. A happy team, two happy coaches and a lot of happy parents.
Deerness Valley Storm 3 v 5 U14 Eagles
The Eagles started the new year with an outstanding team performance from front to back today against a very good side. Each player gave 100%. The encouragement and communication from the team towards each other was brilliant. A well deserved 3 points.
Goals from Adam x 2, Liam, Will and Olly MOM Zac
South Shields 5 v 3 U14 Girls (QF Cup)
So much more than just football, as a football family pre game we stood together and paid our respect to a school friend who sadly passed away this week, Jack Jose rest in peace mate.
Quarter final day against a tough premier league side but in a test the girls proved they are capable of playing at that level. Not our day goal wise but the Aycliffe girls should be proud of their performance.
Deerness Valley Girls 0 v 5 U12 Girls
The girls were back in action after 4 weeks of no football, and got off to a fantastic start to 2023 with a comfortable win. The team took no time getting back into the swing of things and went 2-0 up within the first 10 minutes. Aycliffe went on to score 3 more goals throughout the remainder game without conceding. MOTM: Hannah
U12 Eagles 2 v 0 Billingham Jnrs
Aycliffe totally dominated the game today from start to finish with all players contributing to today’s win and a well deserved 3 points. The defence in particular of Carter, Dylan, Lucas and Riley were outstanding. Goals from Jack V and Brandon MOM Evan
Boldon Girls v U10 Girls
On a run of 9 games unbeaten , the girls were ready for a tough challenge after the festive break, having only managed a draw at their first meeting. The girls started well with a lot of passing to move up the pitch, Phoebe had a strong run up the pitch and layed off to Lily, who slotted the ball into the top corner. Next PoppyH crossed the ball in from a corner and a deflection from a Boldon player made it 2-0. To end the half, Amelia found herself in front of the goal keeper, from a PoppyH pass and calmly passed it into the net. Second half was a bit slower but after hitting the bar twice, PoppyB managed to get herself on the score sheet with a shot from distance
MOTM went to the goal keeper Daisy who made some important saves and managed to keep a clean sheet
Redcar Town v u9 Eagles
The Eagles returned from their winter break with an entertaining game against Redcar Town Royals. Eagles played some brilliant football and battled hard against a very strong team who have only lost once all season. Although the lads didn’t win they should be very proud of how they battled well together as a team with Floyd Rowe scoring a screamer in the top corner in the last minute
Winlaton Hurricanes 6 v 0 U14 Girls (Sunday)
First game back in 2023, was a cup match that didn’t go to plan. We were on top for 15 minutes but didn’t take our chances. 4 quick goals from Winlaton in a 15 minute spell, put the game out of reach. Star players were Saf (players choice) & Lana (coaches choice).
