Baffins will no doubt prove to be a real challenge for the Whites having won the East division with 16 wins from their 19 games played so far and find themselves 15 points ahead of 2nd placed Folland with a game to go.

Come along and support the lads in what should be a highly competitive game. Your support is very much needed.

DEVELOPMENT SQUAD - Oh So Close

Salisbury FC Development 2 v 3 Christchurch Reserves 

This young Whites side featured 7 players that went down 11 v 1 to Poole Town last weekend. Those 7 showed they are learning and learning dam fast just 7 days later. 

The conditions at the Ray Mac yesterday were not conducive to the ball leaving the ground and for most of this game both sides tried to play football on the floor so they knew where the ball would land. For the first 15 minutes or so the game was fairly even with the visitors possibly edging it, but Will Betts (U18) in the Salisbury goal hadn't had too much on target to worry him.

Shortly after Christchurch did find a way past Betts to take the lead and on 30 minutes they got a second. However, a one goal lead at this point the visitors probably just about deserved, but a 2 goal lead not in my opinion. The fact is though that 2nd seemed to spur the home side to up their level and some consistent pressure on the visitors goal was rewarded when a perfectly placed free kick from just in front of the home stands from Reece McSorley found Liam Smith at the far post who caught it on the volley to give the keeper no chance of preventing it from finding the net.

At half time changes were made and the home team changed to a 4-4-2 formation with 32 year experience (between then) up front with Sam Butt and Frazer Hicks now leading the line. The Whites were then creating a lot more chances and roughly on the hour good interplay between the two strikers created a one on one for Hicks, however the visiting keeper did well to smother the chance.

On 85 minutes, another set piece this time delivered by Louie James caused chaos in the opposition box and eventually the ball was stabbed home by Smith to level the match.

The vastly older Church team all be it most of them were only 19 visibly didn't want to drop points against a bunch of even younger players than them and pushed for a winner. For most of the remaining 5 plus 2 minutes injury time the game was characterised by good defending by the home side and a determination to get something from the game.

Then on 92 minutes, literally with the last kick of the game Church managed to scramble the ball past Betts and into the net. The resulting 10 man bundle on the floor showed how much it meant to them.

Even the visiting manager said we didn't deserve to lose the game, however it is for us 'development' football and just how much this side has developed in just 7 days is the only points we need.

Many thanks must go to Christchurch reserves for an excellent game between two sides trying to play good football in testing conditions.
With a couple of 19 year olds, an 17, 18 and 21 year old and nine 16 year olds this really was a young side. Where could they be though when some of them are the same ages as their counter parts today? 

 

Salisbury FC Development V Christchurch FC Reserves

Logo General

With the backlog of Wyvern fixtures meaning the club have both midweek and Saturday fixtures, a young Whites team with the addition of a couple of 21-year-olds will entertain Christchurch Saturday 3pm kick off at the Ray Mac. First priority is to get a strong Whites following down to Tiverton to get behind the 1st team in this vital away game. However, if you're not travelling down to Devon then why not come along and give your support to these young players.

Wilts County U18 call up for Whites U16

Congratulations to Tom Feest on his call up from the under 16 county side to the U18's. Tom has been with the club since he was 7 years old and has been a regular in the Junior Premier league side since being an under 11. Tom also made his adult debut Saturday in the development squad away to Poole Town Reserves. 

Together with four other players from the JPL team, Tom has played in the under 16 county rep side this season, but a chance to play up an age group at this level is a great achievement for him and the club. 

We wish him the best of luck in this coming Saturdays fixture at Stanley Park, Chippenham to Gloucester FA U18's.
