TRAINING

Created: Tuesday, 08 September 2015 00:00

We had a positive training session at Exeter School last night and hopefully the players enjoyed themselves. There were a few teething issues which the coaches will work on. The majority of the players were sensible and committed.

A couple of thoughts/reminders:

  • Please make sure your child is under the care of a nominated adult for the duration of the session
  • Please support the coaches by reminding children of the expectations around participation, fair play, following instructions, taking part in all that is on offer etc

There are no matches this week. It is a cup week and we have byes into the next round. Enjoy the 'day off'.

Next Up -

  • Training at Exeter School 14/9 1800 to 1900
  • matches on Saturday 19th away to West Exe. Please note the earlier KO time of 0930. Let me know if your child is not available.

Upcoming Fixtures

Created: Tuesday, 08 September 2015 00:00

INFORMATION:

Just to let you know we're experiencing some difficulties at present updating the Under 10s web pages so please bear with us. Currently we're only able to access the Galaxy page and unable to create multiple entries so everything will have to be in one BIG list. Not to worry. Hopefully this is only a temporary problem.

Training on Wednesday 9th September at ISCA  school at 6 pm and this Saturday we have training at home 9.30 am - 11 am at King George V.

PLUS – here are the match reports on last weekend's fixtures:

 

Match report for Central Galaxy – September 5th 2015

 

Central Galaxy  0  West Exe Youth 1

Central Galaxy  8  West Exe Rangers 1

 

"Today in our first game vs West Exe Youth we tried really hard and we had lots of chances on goal. But there goal keeper was phenomenal.  

 

In the second match vs West Exe Rangers it was very different. Tom played striker and he played fantastic and nearly created 2 assists, and had 3 chances at goal. Tom made 2 amazing tackles and got 2 goals. Ben was playing centre back and made 5 awesome tackles, he pushed forward a bit and nearly created an assist. He passed the ball really well. Enrique on his debut played really well, he set the ball up for Tom and just skimmed the post. Felix played in midfield and made some really good chances and nearly scored as well. Aiden played in midfield and ran with the ball fantastically and caused the defence real problems, finishing 2 great goals. Reuben was excellent in defence and got stuck in awesomely. Ali was great at left midfield and got several assists and also hit the post. Finley ran strongly with the ball got an assist and finished 4 goals."

 

8-1 to Central Galaxy – what a start.

 

Report by Finley Hill

 

(Editor's note: Ali Douglas contests one of Aiden's goals and claims it as his own. It's a team game so it doesn't really matter but still... the debate begins)  

 

 

Match report for Central Santos – September 5th 2015

 

Central Santos 6 West Exe Rangers  1

Central Santos 0  West Exe Youth 3

 

"Central Santos welcomed West Exe Rangers to KGV for the opening fixture of the 2015/16 season. The weather was kind and the rain never materialised - so good conditions (other than a new burrow in the penalty area!). Central Santos made all the running in the first half, scoring 3 goals very quickly to put West Exe Rangers under pressure - with the visitors only getting out of their own half twice in the first 15 minutes! Santos players were showing no signs of rustiness with good passing and link play on show. The second half began with West Exe taking the game to Santos but the defence held firm with some notable tackles from James Thornburgh and Archie Hoban (who acquitted themselves very well on their Central debuts) along with Charlie Drew who was dynamic as ever. Santos added 3 more goals in the second half, with a spectacular screamer from Nial Buechler giving the opposition keeper no chance and Cody Dowdall slicing through the West Exe midfield with a pinpoint pass to Billy Knightly who finished in style with the outside of the boot. To their credit West Exe Rangers kept trying and were rewarded with a last-second goal that just crossed the line from close range. Central Santos win 6-1.

 

The second game against West Exe Youth was a different affair, with the visitors looking like a well drilled and organised team. Santos were by no means outclassed and went close a couple of times through Levi Owens and Billy Knightly in the first half. Joe Wood in goal kept Santos in the game early in the second half with three great saves in quick succession but West Exe Youth kept up the pressure as Santos showed signs of fatigue. Santos eventually lost 3 - 0 to a team we beat last season however there were real positives to pull from the game - most notably the attitude shown by all the players who never gave up.

 

Overall, a pretty good start to the season - considering only one training session before the first game and some of our experienced players unavailable! Thanks to Lee Owens for refereeing in both matches and to the parents who put up and took down the goals."

Match Report 

 

Game 1: Axminster Tigers

 

Central were slow to start this game, with the home side making better use of the bigger pitch. Some indecisive defending gave the home team the advantage as they scored 3 first half goals without reply.

 

The 2nd half was much of the same although Heston did trouble the home team with some great runs.

The home team scored another 3 goals but Central managed a consolation goal scored by Luke. 

 

 

FT.  6 - 1

 

Scores - Luke

 

 

Game 2: Millway Rise

 

Central reshuffled for this game and they started really well, scoring first through Daneal after a good run on goal. More defensive mistakes sadly cost Central who leaked 3 goals to go in 1 - 3 at half time.

 

In the 2nd half, Jacob had a shot which hit the bottom of the post but Central struggled at the back and gave 3 more goals away.

 

 

FT - 6 - 1

 

Scorers - Daneal

 

Star Player: Luke

 

 

 

Game 1: Millway Rise

 

Our first match against Millway was very entertaining, Central were slow straight from kick off and Millway took the lead but then Central started to settle and put some great passing  moves together, the goal did come with Alex finding the net. This pattern went on throughout the match and at half time it was 3-3. The second half Central increased the pressure with some great moves down the right wing by George. Central had their first headed goal and it came from a corner from George. Henry came up from defence and produced a great header into the corner, in the end Central ran out winners 4 - 6.

 

 

FT: 4 - 6

 

Scorers: Alex (4) George (1) Henry (1)

 

Star players - George and Alex

 

Game 2 : Axminster Tigers

 

The first half Central were poor against the Tigers, a lack of passing and poor defending and Tigers raced to a 2 - 0 lead by half time. The second half did not start well with a deflected goal off 2 defenders giving them a 3 - 0 lead. Central did not give up and passed the ball around and goals from George and Alex made it 3 - 2 and at the end a couple of chances should of gone in but thats football. A credit to the boys today who show character  and determination to never give up.

 

 

FT: 3 - 2

 

Scorers. Alex (1) George (1)

 

Star player - George

Match Report 

 

Game 1:

 

Central found their opponents tough going in the 1st half, letting Topsham sail to a 4 -0 half time lead.

In the 2nd half Central stepped up a gear, and found a way through with Harry who took his opportunity well. The visitors did add a 5th but only the post stopped Harry grabbing a second after some good dribbling.

 

 

FT.  1 - 5

 

Scorers - Harry

 

 

Game 2: 

 

In total contrast to the first game, Central took the game to their opponents and raced to a 3-0 lead, with a fabulous hat-trick from Harry, whose 2nd of which was a sublime chip over the Topsham keeper.

As the half drew to a close Topsham gave themselves a chance by finding the net twice.

Central were only denied a 4th goal by the half time whistle!

 

In the 2nd half, Topsham took control and were able to add 5 goals to their total. Central rallied on and grabbed a 4th with Elliot making space and shooting into the corner.

 

FT.  4 - 7

 

Scorers - Harry (3) Elliott (1)

 

Star Player: Harry

 

 

 

Game 1:

 

Our first game was a close encounter, Central’s first time on a larger under 9’s pitch and the grass being long did not help things. It was end to end with Central scoring first with a great display by Ned setting Alex up, Topsham came back strongly and equalised by half time. The second half carried on the same with chances at both ends with some great goal keeping from Tobias. Ned carried on with a strong second half performance again linking up with Alex who slotted in the winner.

 

 

FT: 2 - 1

 

Scorers: Alex (2)

 

Star players - Ned and Alex

 

Game 2 :

 

In our second game Topsham picked their strongest side to seek revenge and I think Central’s tiredness crept in with poor defending and clearances, also a lack of passing which led to Topsham winning comfortably by 4 goals. A good battling performance by George was the highlight of the game.

 

FT: 0 - 4

 

Star player - George

 

See you all at training on Monday and don’t forget it starts at 6pm.

Match Report 

 

Game 1:

Central kicked off today's games against Lympstone. It was the visitors who moved the ball better, and racing to a half time lead of 0-6. In the 2nd half Central pressed the ball more wisely and were able to capitalise with a good goal by Ned, who could have scored more in the half. 

 

 

FT.  1 - 6

 

Scorers - Ned

 

 

Game 2: 

Central faced Alphington Raiders and were quick to set their stall out with Daneal making some direct runs with the ball which troubled the visitors. However, it was Alphington who scored first with a low skidding shot. HT:0-1.

Central worked hard and ran their socks off to get back into the game but the visitors were able to score 4 second half goals without reply.

 

FT.  0 - 5

 

Star Player: Harry

 

 

 

Game 1:

 

Our first game was against Alphington Raiders, both sides found it very difficult to play a passing game in the conditions with driving rain and long grass. Both sides battled away and Central went in at half time leading 3-1. The second half followed the same pattern Alphington managed to score a couple of goals but Alex again was sharp up front scoring 3 goals. In the end we came out comfortable winners 6 - 3.

 

 

FT: 6 - 3

 

Scorers: Alex (6)

 

Star player - Alex

 

Game 2 :

 

Our second game was against Lympstone, they put up a good battling performance with plenty of goals in the 1st half and at half time it was 4-2 to central. The driving rain got heavier but Central did put together some great moves and it ended 8 - 3.

 

FT: 8 - 3

 

Goal Scorers - Alex (6) Beltran (1) Own goal (1)

 

I would like to thank all the parents for their support and helping putting up and taking down the goals in the driving rain.

 

Next training will be on the 4th January 2016 at 6pm.

 

On behalf of Central, myself and the coaches we would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Match Report 

 

Game 1:

Central started well in this game showing lots of organisation in the team. It was a tight first half in which the visitors managed to score the first goal close to half time. Tobias had produced many good saves to keep the scores at 0 - 0 before this.

 

In the 2nd half, an early goal for the visitors doubled their lead, but Central kept knocking on the door. Jacob had a couple of shots that tested their keeper and Heston hit the post with the ball agonisingly rolling along the goal line only to be held by the keeper.

 

 

FT.  0-2

 

Star Player: Tobias

 

 

Game 2:

 

After a reshuffle Central seemed to look a bit disjointed and the visitors raced to a 0 - 3 lead at half time with Tobias, again making some good saves for Central.

 

Central worked hard in the 2nd half and scored an early goal through Jacob to reduce the gap but in search of more goals they forgot to defend and allowed the visitors too much space and were punished by 3 more goals.

 

FT.  1-6

 

Scorers : Jacob (1)

 

Star Player: Jacob

 

 

 

Game 1:

 

Central started very slow not putting many passes together and it was not long before St Martins went ahead with a very good goal. We then started to get back into the match with Riley scoring a good goal. We started to string together a few passes in the second half which enable Alex to get into the game scoring 4 goals and in the end winning quite comfortably.

 

FT: 5 - 2

 

Scorers: Alex (4), Riley (1)

 

Star player - Alex

 

Game 2 :

 

In our second match Central were very poor, not passing, poor marking and giving the ball away, it was end to end and towards the end it was nail biting, St Martin were winning 1 - 2 and in the last minute Alex worked hard in front of goal and found the corner and it ended up a draw in reflection was the correct score.

 

FT: 2 - 2

 

Goal Scorers - Alex (1) Riley (1)

 

Next week is our last training session and match before Christmas and we will be playing at home on the 19th.

 

See you all Monday 6pm prompt.

Match Report 

 

Game 1:

Central found themselves up against it from the kick off, Seaton raced into a 3 - 0 lead at half time, which may well have been more if Henry hadn't produced some fine saves.

Playing against the wind in the second half, Central were bombarded with shots but managed to score through Daneal. The hosts soon added a 4th to close the game.

 

 

FT.  4-1

 

Scorers - Daneal

 

Star Player: Henry

 

 

Game 2: 

The first half saw Central out passed by the hosts, who scored 2 goals early on. Heston pulled one back with a low shot into the corner to make it 2 - 1 at half time.

 

Again, playing against the wind in the 2nd half Central were drained of energy as the hosts added 4 more goals without reply.

 

 

 

FT.  6-1

 

Scorers : Heston

 

Star Player: Heston

 

 

 

Game 1:

The first half saw Central Wolves dominating the play with some good passing especially from George and clinical finishing from Alex going 0-3 up by half time. The second half Seaton came back strongly scoring 3 goals making it a nervy ending but then the goal of the season from Wolves which came right from Seaton’s kick off, Alex making a great tackle in the centre circle and then weaved his way through the whole team and slotting it in the corner. Wolves holding on and it finishing 3-4.

 

FT: 3 - 4

 

Scorers: Alex (4)

 

Star player - Alex

 

Our second match against Seaton Central started strongly and controlled the first half going in 0 - 2 at half time. The second half again Central took control producing some good moves which produced another goal. Tobias produced some good saves to keep a clean sheet.

 

FT: 0 - 3

 

Goal Scorers - Alex (2) Beltran (1)

Match Report 

 

Game 1: vs Heavitree Hawks

 

Central played well in this game despite the cold wind and wide pitch. Heavitree were first to score and added a second in the first half. Henry played well in goal making crucial saves. The hosts added a third in the 2nd half without reply.

 

FT - 3 - 0

 

Star Player: Henry

 

Game 2: vs Heavitree Eagles

 

A few changes made some difference with Daneal in goal and Henry outfield. Again, the hosts were first to score benefiting on some static Central defending. The hosts added a 2nd before half time.

In the 2nd half Central plugged away and were well deserved with their goal close to full time. There was time for a 4th goal however Central had a lapse in concentration and the hosts extended their lead.

 

FT - 3 - 1

 

Scorers : Harry (1) 

 

Star Player: Harry

 

 

 

Central wolves first game was against Heavitree Eagles, this was our first match playing 6 a side and trying out some new formations. The lads adapted very well with the new system with some great passing which opened up Eagles defence. Alex got off to a great start scoring 4 goals in the first half. In the 2nd second half Riley and Alex added to the scoreline with some great team work.

 

 

FT: 1 - 6

Our second match was against Heavitree Hawks, we started very slowly with early pressure from Hawks but the defence held firm with Jake taking control. Central then got their act together with some great passing which cut open the hawks defence with Riley and Alex looking to get onto the score sheet. Beltran was making some great runs down the right wing, Ned putting in some great  tackling and George producing some great passes to set up Alex.In the end the goals came from Alex and Riley.

Match Report 

 

First up for Wanderers today were CS Cobras. Central looked to play out from the back in this game, with some good passing throughout the team but it was the home side who scored first. A great amount of effort was given by all Central players on a pitch that was deteriorating due to the weather. The home team were more decisive with their choice of passing and won the game 4 - 0.

 

FT - 4 - 0

 

The second game was against West Hill Wasps, the pitch had a huge impact on the game. Central were closest to scoring first, with Harry hitting the post with a great shot. West Hill countered straight away and took the lead. They doubled the lead shortly after but Central dug deep with Harry scoring just before half time. 

In the 2nd half was back and forth, Elliot keeping goal making several crucial saves. Ned scored near the end to make it 2 - 2 and Elliot denied West Hill a last gasp winner.

 

FT - 2 - 2

 

Scorers : Harry (1) Ned (1)

 

No star player today as the whole team were fantastic in both matches.

 

 

Central Wolves first game was against West Hill, the pitch was like a bog with the rain still falling. Right from kick off Central got into their stride with great team work which produced some great passing and goals from Riley, Alex and Beltran. This carried on through out the match.

 

 

FT: 1 - 8

 

Scorers: Beltran (2) Riley (3) Alex (3)

 

Our second match against CS Cobras was end to end, the pitch made a huge impact on this game, getting worst by the minute and the rain getting harder which in the end sapped all the energy out of the Central lads. They gave it their all but ended up losing 6 - 4 which was a great effort.

 

Goal Scorers - Riley (1) Alex (3)

 

The star players today were the parents for standing out in those awful conditions cheering on the team.

Match Report 

 

Today we were home to Feniton Blues.

 

Central Wanderers got off to a very slow start finding themselves 0 - 2 down in the opening few minutes. Only then did we start to play and showed some signs of getting into the game. The visitors extended their lead into half time, 0 - 5.

 

George, who played in defence in the fist half was pushed forward to trouble the visitors and he managed to get his goal early in the 2nd half. Elliott kept 2nd half goal really well making some good brave saves. At the other end Central found rhythm to their passing and should have scored more. The visitors capitalised on this and ran in 3 more goals before full time.

 

 

 

FT: 1 - 8

 

Star Player: George

 

Goal Scorers - George (1)

 

Wolves first and only game against Feniton blues was a very entertaining match. Wolves started strongly with some great team work putting together some slick passing. Alex again was very impressive in front of goal scoring a hat trick in the first half.

 

We started the second half very well producing some great moves, Riley and Alex again got onto the score sheet. Henry was playing in goal for the first time and produced a great display.

 

FT: 6 - 2

 

Goal Scores - Riley (1) Alex (5)

 

Stars of the Day - Alex and Henry

 

There will be NO Training on Monday and NO match on the following Saturday.

Match Report 

 

Today we were home to Stoke Hill.

 

This week we decided to include a few older players into the Wanderers team to support the younger players as Stoke Hill have always proven to be a very strong side. Stoke Hill produced some delightful football and were leading at half time by 3 goals.

Daneal played well in goal, making some good saves to keep the scoreline down and some good defending by Eddie also helped the cause.

Stoke Hill ran out winners of this game.

 

FT: 0 - 8

 

Star Player: Eddie

 

A reshuffle of positions seemed to help Central in this game as Jacob and Toby grew in confidence as the game progressed. Stoke Hill were first to strike and doubled their lead shortly after. Jacob halved the deficit before half time with a great shot creeping through the keepers legs. Half Time: 1 - 2.

 

Another fine display in goal by Daneal in the second half, coupled with great defending by Toby kept the visitors to just 2 more goals. It could have been closer as Jacob was denied by a fine save near the end of the game.

 

 

FT: 1 - 4

 

Goal Scores - Jacob

 

Star Player - Toby

 

Central Wolves first match was very entertaining and I think it was the best performance of the season. Trying out a new formation Wolves dominated Stoke Hill with some great passing and by half time were 4 - 0 up with some good goals from Alex and Riley. Second half we started strongly with Beltran scoring a great team goal and star player of the match Jake produced a fantastic defensive display throughout the match.

 

FT: 6 - 1

 

Goal Scores - Beltran (1) Alex (4) Riley (1)

 

Star player - Jake

 

The next match Central Wolves ran out of steam and ended up losing 0 - 5 but there was some great saves by Tobias to keep the score line down.

Match Report 

 

Today we were away to Broadclyst and Bradninch.

 

Wanderers first match was against Brandninch which was a closely fought first half and Central had Daneal to thank with a few good saves to deny the hosts the lead.  At the other end, great work by Ned, Harry and Heston on separate occasions being denied by some good defending. Bradninch opened the scoring with a high shot, going over the keepers head.

2nd half involved a lot more attacking by both teams, but it was the hosts who took their chances finishing the game 4-0 winners.

 

 

Our 2nd game was against Broadclyst started in a similar manner, this game was played at a fast pace, with Elliott making good tackles to thwart the hosts. As in the first game, the hosts took the lead, and went into half time 1-0 up.

Central carried on taking the game to Broadclyst, with Daneal hitting the post and being unlucky not to get Central a goal. The hosts won the game 4-0 but Central gave as good as they got. 

 

Star Player: Ned

 

 

So first up for Central Wolves were Broadclyst, who started very well and scored early on and dominated the match and if it was not for Tobias with a string of fine saves kept us in the match. Central just could not get into gear with a disappointing performance and the score stayed 1-0.

 

FT: 0 - 1

 

Goal Scores - 

 

Star Player - Tobias

 

The next match Central Wolves were up against Bradninch who again dominated the match with some great passing movements and scoring 2 goals. Again the star player was Tobias who made some great saves keeping the score down to 2-0.

 

FT: 0 - 2

Match Report 

 

On a lovely summers morning (well Autumn) next up was the visit of Dawlish who brought a large contingent with them.

 

Central Wanderers started really slowly in this opening game which allowed Dawlish to open the scoring. The pattern continued throughout the 1st half with Dawlish adding another 2 goals before half time. HT: 0 - 3.

A change in goal for Central at half time inspired the team to push on. Even though the Wanderers failed to trouble the scoresheet, Daneal pulled off a string of good saves to deny Dawlish anymore goals.

 

FT: 0 - 3.

 

Goal Scorers -

 

Star Player - Daneal

 

With one game under their belt, Wanderers showed improvement and took the lead with a free kick scored by Sam. With Daneal continuing in goal it looked as though Dawlish would struggle to fid the net. Dawlish did manage to score the equaliser before half time and had their tails up adding to the goal, again before half time. HT: 1 - 2.

Dawlish continued to press and added a further 5 goals in the 2nd half with a consolation strike by Daneal closed the gap.

 

FT: 2 - 7

 

Goal scorers - Sam (1)  Daneal (1)

 

Star player - Harry

 

Central Wolves in their first match got off to a very slow start going 2 goals down within 5 minutes but then sorted themselves out and picked up the tempo with some good passing and playing like a team, Riley getting on the score sheet scoring a great team goal. Following last weeks performance Alex continued his great form adding another 7 goals to his tally. Tobias put in another strong performance in goal whilst Beltran played really well with a very strong defensive display being his first game of the season.

 

FT: 8 - 2

 

Goal Scores - Alex (7), Riley (1)

 

Star Player - Beltran

 

The next match Central Wolves started strongly and dominated the whole of the match with more goals from Alex (scoring a great free kick) and Riley getting his first hat-trick. Toby’s and Ed’s confidence grew and did some great tackling.Beltran put in another great performance also scoring his first goal of the season.

 

FT: 11 - 1

 

Goal Scorers - Riley (3) Beltran (1) Alex (7) 

 

Star Player - Riley

 

 

I would like to thanks all the parents who set up the goals and the two referees.

Match Report 

 

After two training sessions the boys were really looking forward to their first match against West Exe which was going to be tough.

 

Central Wanderers I think in their first match had stage fright as most of the boys had never played a proper match before and West Exe dominated the match with a 15-0 score line, to their credit wanderers never let their heads drop and Heston was tireless in his role.

 

The next match Wanderers went from being dominated to the dominant in the 1st half and goals from Harry and Daneal gave them a 2-1 lead going into half time. West Exe came out fighting and came out on top scoring 7 goals but thanks to Elliott who made some great saves and kept the scoreline down and it finished 9-2.

 

Goal Scorers - Daneal (1), Harry (1)

 

Star Player - Elliott

 

Central Wolves first match was very competitive and all the boys put in a great performance with some good passing and great finishing from Alex scoring four goals. Their was some great saves by Tobias to keep the scoreline down and Riley started to dominate the midfield to set up Alex. The score line finished 4-3 to Wolves.

 

The last match was very entertaining with end to end action and lots of goals, Riley getting his first goal for Central Wolves and Alex must of had his Weetabix this morning finishing with another four and the match finished 5-5.

 

Goal Scores - Alex (8), Riley (1)

 

Star Player - Alex

 

All players played with great sportsmanship and respected the one minute silence.

 

I would like to thank all the parents who set up the goals and I should not forget the two referees.

 

Training will be on Monday 6pm - 7pm Exeter School

Good Start!

Central U9s got their season off to a good start with solid performances against Stoke Hill and Whipton winning three out of the four matches..

GOOD START!

Created: Sunday, 06 September 2015 00:00

To say that the players were 'looking forward' to their first matches was an understatement. We had 19 players involved including debutants, Freddie, Will and Jaiden - welcome and congratulations to them.

It was also sure to be a tough start up against Stoke Hill and Whipton.

Despite the summer break the players were soon into their stride playing exciting attacking football and creating lots of chances. Both teams started brilliantly winning the first two matches. Although the scorelines might suggest otherwise both teams had to work hard for their victories.

The second round of matches were closer affairs but again both Central teams performed well, scored goals and played fairly and in a good spirit.

Both teams were positive, enthusiastic and treated their opponents with respect - well done everyone.

Next week we look forward to the league cup with a trip to higher league Pinhoe Gladiators looking for a cup upset to carry on the positive start to the season.

Kick-Off!!

Created: Tuesday, 01 September 2015 00:00

The new season kicks-off this Saturday 5th September at home to Whipton and Stoke Hill.

It was good to see so many players at training on Monday. If you weren't able to make it, do not worry. We appreciate it was a Bank Holiday. Hopefully we will see everyone either on Saturday at KGV or next Monday at Exeter School Astro 1800 to 1900.

If you still need a registration form email me and I will send you one. Remember the deadline for registrations is Sept 12th please. I have been innundated with new enquiries and am now putting players on a waiting list so I need to know what our numbers are by the 12th. We are likely to be running with 27/28 players, a few more than we would like from an organisational perspective, but a reflection of the demand there is for children to play at Central FC!

I am awaiting 'new' kits for new players. I have a few but it does mean that I can't include many new players this week until I am certain I have kits for those players. If your child isn't playing this week they will be included in our next fixture as we rotate players around.

If I have included your child but they are not available on Saturday let me know asap.

Please arrive at KGV for 0945. Parents need to please help with putting up goals. Volunteers for referreing needed. Whistles provided!

Remember - boots, shin pads, full Central kit (I have three kits for the three new players), drinks and snacks. Watch the weather forecast and be prepared.

TEAMS

CITY - Alastair, Jaiden, James, Josh G (GK), Josh S, Matilda, Matthew (GK), Olly, Reilly, William N

UTD - Ben, Cayden, Charlie, Ed B, Freddie, Finley (GK), Harrison (GK), Luke,  Milo, Raffy.

New Season!

Created: Sunday, 30 August 2015 00:00

So the new season is upon us! I hope you have all enjoyed the summer holidays and I am sure the players are all excited and keen to get going. Below is a range of information you will all need, if there is anything I have missed, or you have a specific question, feel free to email me This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call/text to 07958514067. Apologies for a lack of information to date but from this point onwards you can expect regular updates.

TRAINING

Our first training session is on August 31st at KGV 1800 to 1900. after that training will be every Monday 1800-1900 at Exeter School Astro the entrance to which is on Barrack Road. We tend not to train during the school holidays - I will keep you informed as we go through the season.

KIT

Players need correct footwear for the ground conditions they are playing on. Shin pads are essential, players cannot play without them. We will provide full match kit. Players from last season will have a kit already which they should keep and re-use. New players will be provided with kit asap. Central kit should only be worn on match days. Players should wear their own kit for training sessions.

Management and Coaching

I will be fully involved in all aspects of management and coaching and will be the first point of contact for parents. I am pleased to advise that I will be supported by Steve Watson (Charlie's Dad), Mike Gibson (Reilly's Dad) and Joe Chamberlain. There will be times when any one of use may be unable to attend but the idea is that there will always be two or three coaches to ensure that we can run two teams on a Saturday and a safe and effective training session each Monday.

Match Days

Matches are played on Saturday mornings with a KO time of 1030. If your child is playing, you will need to arrive at 0945. The format is two teams, each playing two matches. The games are 15 mins each way. We will usually be finished by 1200. This season we play 7-a-side so will use squads of 9/10 players for each of the two teams.

Parents need to assist in putting up the Samba goals and volunteers to referee are very welcome.

Game Time/Rotation/Goal-keeping/Team Selection

At Central FC we welcome players of all abilities. We don't select based on ability and we endeavour to give all players equal game time.

With that in mind we will track team selection and on match days all players can expect to spend time as a substitute.

We will be using 20 players each match day, however we are expecting around 28 registrations. This means there will be a time when all players are 'rested' to allow for fair rotation. Usually resting can tie in with the fact that players will have a time when they are poorly, on holiday, visiting Granny etc. However there may be a time when your child is available but is nevertheless rested.

Occasionally there will be someone who wants to specialise as a goal-keeper. If you child does, let me know and we will do our best to support them in that. Without specialist keepers we will run a keeper rota throughout the season. This means everyone will be a keeper at some point. When it is your child's turn, they will be keeper for a whole game. This means we will use 4 keepers each Saturday.

Whilst players will have their preferred positions, they can expected to play in all positions throughout the season.

Player involvement, development and enjoyment is the focus. If we win a few games along the way too, that is a bonus

Registration

All players must be registered and a payment agreement for fees need to be in place. If you are yet to register your child that is not a problem but we do need to get these all completed by Sept 12th. I have forms for players from last season which I will bring along to training. For new players, I have discovered the form on our website is out of date! Therefore I will either provide paper copies or email you the new form. We may also ask to take a photo of your child for their FA ID card.

Respect

Central FC has an excellent reputation due to the respectful behaviour of our players, coaches and parents. We won't all always get it totally right but the aim is that parents and coaches set a good example to the players in the first instance. As parents and coaches, we should also provide appropriate advice and guidance to the players so that they can be the best they can be both as players and as young people.

Communication

As you may already be aware, my preferred method of communication to parents is the website. This allows me to communicate to a large group in one hit and means you know where to go and when to expect information to be available. I will regularly update the web pages with dates and general information, team/match news will go up on Wednesday evenings and match reports will follow the weekend fixtures.

If you need to contact me use 07958514067 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

When the weather looks like it might affect matches or training, please keep and eye on the website, your emails and texts as I will tend to use all three to try and make sure you all know what is happening. Check before leaving home to prevent any unnecessary journeys.

Fixtures

The fixture list is available for you to view at http://www.exeteryouthleague.co.uk/under9s/

You will notice that there are some blank weeks, in the first instance some of these will be filled with Cup matches the first of which is Sept 12th, however our teams have a first round bye. Where there are gaps I may be able to arrange additional fixtures. I will of course let you know if that is the case. The season also comes to an early end at February half term. I'm not sure of the reasons for this, however I will look to arrange additional fixtures to take us up to Easter.

There is a lot of information here but if I have missed anything do ask.

Wishing everyone an enjoyable season!
