Weymouth FC Youth Tournament 24th May - U7/8's

The tournament took place at

The Marsh on a lovely sunny day. The U9's team started playing at 9.30am and the U7/8's team got under way just after 2pm. With 12 teams in the Under 7/8's Boys category, it was going to be a long day. Having participated in the Dorchester tournament at the beginning of May the boys were now familiar with the format. This time round they played 7 a side, with each game lasting about 15 minutes. The boys were well supported by their parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents. The boys played very well considering the warm weather and playing the majority of the games with an U7 side. East scored their first and only goal of the tournament. At 6 pm with three games remaining the Team Managers decided to call it a day and the teams all gathered together to be presented with their medals. LW

AGM Report

The AGM was well attended and
all the players received a medal from Yeovil Town FC player Paul Warne. A special prize was also given to players with a 100% attendance record, most improved player and player of the year in the different age groups. The players who participated in the Dorchester Tournament also received medals for their efforts. The parents and coaches were given a big cheer for their support and contribution to the running of the club. Ian was thanked for maintaining the playing field and Norman House for helping to sweep up the changing rooms after the training session. The weather remained dry and the events went ahead as planned. Four teams participated in 'It's a Knockout'. I volunteered to captain 'The Ninjas' and the girls from the WDDC Action Van captained three teams. We all enjoyed the varied, fun and challenging activities. Michael and Colin did a great job on the BBQ. LW

Presentation / AGM / Fun day this Saturday 16th May

The presentation of awards will kick off at 11am with guest presenter Yeovil Town's - Paul Warne.
After this will be a quick AGM while the kids are entertained by the WDDC Action Van. (Bouncy Castle as well weather permitting)
We will then stoke up the barbies and start selling refreshments - just right for Saturday lunch.
The plan for the afternoon is to have a family It's a Knockout with lots of large inflatable games ie gladiator / human table football / sumo etc etc - It is great fun - I know I got roped in last summer.
However the Great British weather may change this - if it is wet, due to Health & Safety regulations, we will not be able to use the inflatables. If this is the case we will revert to our normal fun footie matches - mums vs the pups - & the dads vs the rest !! So please make sure you have your normal training kit with you.
Lets all cross our fingers for good weather.
