Under 18 Trials for Salisbury FC

Salisbury Football Club are delighted to announce trials for our successful under 18's side.

The squad competes in the South West Counties Youth League. In the 2016/17 season the side also enjoyed a successful run in the FA Youth cup to the first round proper where only a last gasp winner for Swindon town denied the young whites a replay.

Salisbury FC provides a pathway for talented players that want to not only stay in football, but also still have ambitions of progressing into the pro, or semi pro game. Our under 18's also have the opportunity to stake a claim for selection to our U23 squad and ultimately first team football. 4 players from the squad made their 1st team debuts in Steve Claridges squad during the 16/17 season.  

The trials will be held at Bulford recreation ground, Watergate lane, Bulford SP4 9DY. They commence Tuesday 20th June from 7pm - 8:30pm and will continue every Tuesday and Thursday for the foreseeable future.

Richard Rendall and Mark Sommerton are keen to look at players in all positions including goal keeper.

In the first instance interested players should book a place by contacting manager Richard Rendall on the below contact details

YOUTH - Weekend round up 1st / 2nd April

Whites 18’s crowned Champions of the Wilts Senior League U18 Floodlit Division 

In truth there is only six games in this division, but last night’s 4 v 1 win at Pewsey means the Whites with two games remaining have an unsaleable lead in the table and the Silverware will be coming to the Ray Mac this season.  

The under 18 squad is being stretched left, right and centre at the moment with many playing not only South West Counties U18 games and the above U18 league, they are also involved in the Whites Development games.  

Fixtures on Saturday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this week possibly had a slight influence on the side that went down 1 v 3 to high flying Poole town on Saturday morning. Poole started strongly and took the lead on 20 minutes when Balmer scored. They probably thought they had sealed the win when Wright extended their lead on 50 minutes, however Ryan Penny pulled one back just 5 minutes later to give the Whites a glimmer of hope, that hope was extinguished on 70 minutes when Sam Hockey put the match beyond Salisbury when he made it 3 v 1.  

Poole remain on track to win the South West Counties Youth League title, were as the Whites season is now over with this being their final league fixture. Salisbury are currently 4th, however Bath City have three games to play. After they put 11 past BC Saints on Saturday you wouldn’t put it beyond them getting the 4 points they need to leapfrog Richard Rendall and Mark Somertons boys.  

The lads should be proud of the season they have had, 4th or 5th is no mean feat given the clubs and their resources that are in this division. An excellent run in the FA youth cup to the first round proper and a game under the lights of the Ray Mac against full time Swindon town is a memory the players will keep forever. A number of the squad have made their 1st team debuts as well.  

Whites 14’s have a weekend to remember 

Under 14’s was according to U18 boss Rich Rendall ‘the season from hell’ when his side were this old. Mark Winter now 100% understands what he meant. This season has seen the lads suffering far more injuries than usual, and it is mostly down to it being just about their fastest growth period (apart from the 1st year after birth perhaps). From a squad of 21 it has too often been the case of a bare 11 or worse. So when we were able to field a nigh on full strength side on Saturday to take on Basingstoke Town in the JPL there was to be no excuses.  

The Whites from the start to the finish dominated the game and the back three of Owen Davis, Thom Feest and Declan Green protected as usual by Capt. Alfie Hawke in the holding midfield role never gave Stoke a shot on goal. In fact a couple of half saves was all that troubled the White’s goal all game. Jack Eagles got the opening goal for Salisbury and the 5th in-between that Reece McSoreley notched a wonderful Hattrick. 5 v 0 it would be kind to say flattered the Whites, but in fact it didn’t on this occasion. Basingstoke broke Whites hearts in the tie earlier in the season when they came back from 3 v 1 down to win 4 v 3. There was no coming back from this one though, that back three was not going to allow it.  

On to Sunday and what can only be described as a promotion playoff game before the play offs.
Add to that, the history between these teams. Hedge end White were the opposition as they were last in last season’s playoff final which the Whites won 2 v1. Games between these two sides are always competitive to say the least and this one was no different. Again a back three was deployed although Thom Feest and Alfie Hawke was the only survivors from the previous day’s defensive line up. In came Sam Butt and Ali Cheetham to complete the rear guard. The attacking part of the squad was as per Saturday, less two goal hero Eagles. Defensively the resulting performance was as per Saturday a clean sheet, attacking wise one goal from Sam Butt was enough seal the 3 points needed to keep the Whites on track to either get automatic promotion should they win this Sunday, or the more likely scenario is another play off final against…you guessed it Hedge End White again. 
 

Rob Hawke and Mark Winter on the Whites bench knew that a win was more important for us than H.E, with ¾ of the game gone and the score at 0 v 0 the electric Sam Butt had the defensive shackles removed and was moved up to midfield as the whites reverted to a 4-4-2 to go for broke. Within 2 minutes Butt stole the ball off a H.E midfielder just inside their half and burst forward, importantly this lad runs with his head up, and on this occasion he noticed the goal keeper was outside of his 6 yard box. No further invitation was needed and he shot from 35 yards over the head of the back rushing keeper into the back of the net. Salisbury then saw out the game to take this promotion battle to the last week of the season.  

Despite what was riding on this game both teams played it in a great sporting spirit helped by a young but very impressive referee who came over to collect his hard earned match fee shaking his head repeating ‘what a game’ 3 times, yes ref it was.   

Champions and undefeated in the league, not two shabby for your first season!  

Champions last week, U13s Blacks still have a 100% Win Ratio to seal, as well as players own targets.  Baddesley Templars were the opposition. 

The Blacks put on early pressure testing the Opposition keeper from the off, he held out for nearly 20 mins before Bradley Robinson lashed a loose ball low into the net. A tidy finish from Matt Shobbrook followed almost instantly, Shobbers had another cleared off the line before adding his 2nd. MOTM Bradley Robinson then struck his 20th league Goal of the season just before the break.  4-0 HT. 

Baddesley’s young keeper held firm again in the 2nd half despite intense pressure from the Blacks, some quick feet in the box led to a Penalty which Whites keeper Christopher Mundy buried for his 3rd goal of the season. The Blacks Defence then took centre stage with Alex Oxley-Thorne breaking from RB to smash one into the top Corner and Bishal Rai CB powering in a header from a corner. Baddesley did grab a consolation, when their keeper put a long ball into our box and some indecision led to an easy finish.  

Baddesley Templars 1-7 Salisbury Blacks. 

It was two games in two days for Salisbury FC U8 Saturday team. 

Saturday was a short trip to Barry 's field in winterslow to play a very determined Clarendon Juniors. Salisbury soon got into their passing rhythm with Elliott Eyers and Theo Crew causing clarendon problems with there ever excellent dominance in midfield. Defensive pair Charlie Creese and Camron Dean played an excellent part in keeping Clarendon at bay during the game . Strikers Ollie Page and Warren Downing excellence throughout the game was too much for Clarendon to deal with on the day.  

Sunday was a road trip to Cheltenham Town FC training ground to play Cheltenham FC Academy. The game provided an excellent experience for the young whites playing against the best team they have faced this season. Salisbury started well with Eathan Standen and Tyler Voce matching Cheltenham's Excellence. But Cheltenham showed there class with an excellent performance throughout the game. A big thank you To Cheltenham Town FC for their kind invite to their impressive training ground. A memorable experience! COYW

 

YOUTH - Weekend youth round up - 11th, 12th March

Under 18’s show real bounce-back-ability

Salisbury under 18s took on New College in the league fixture at Bulford 3G, fresh from being knocked out of the cup last week to Forest Green Rovers which was always going to have an impact on this encounter. Salisbury started slowly and gave New College far too much respect and the visitors took full advantage and were soon 1 nil up. Salisbury still did not respond and New College could have been out of sight within 20 minutes. Kieran McHardy made some important saves and kept the whites in the game and as in any game goals change games. 

Salisbury finally sprung into life and attacked with purpose and drew level with a goal from Christos Papakonstantinou. Then Ryan Penny scored a second to put Salisbury into the lead. However New College replied with an excellent strike to leave the scores level at half time. 

Second half Richard Rendall changed formation to counter the effect of New College’s very impressive number 7, and this worked well and Salisbury dominated the game. Further goals came from Jim Ward scoring with arguably the goal of the season. Liam Greenough made a clever run to cause confusion in the New College defence, Ward looked up to see the Keeper of his line and lobbed him from 30 yards. Greenough then scored himself to put Salisbury 4 v 2 up. The White could have scored more and came close on quite a few occasions, 4 -2 the final score.  

Salisbury FC U16’s won 17 v 0. No match report has been submitted.  

Under 15’s have a Sunday to remember. League Champions and cup finalist all in one day

Following the under 12s from Saturday who made it into a Semi Final, Salisbury FC under 15s made it into the Final of the Tyro Trophy final. On a wet sticky pitch Salisbury adapted the better of teams, although it took a while to clinch lead, when Forden drove home from a rebounded corner. Nash came off the bench and used his pace and quick thinking to double the lead when he coolly slotting home. Wellow FC though refused to lie down and went close on several occasions and it wasn't until midway through the second half Salisbury scored the crucial 3rd goal. Some combination passing down the left between Simpson and Batty set up Tanner to slot past the keeper and put the game beyond the Wellow side. And then captain Waters added a fourth from the spot to wrap it all up. FT 4 v 1. Salisbury will face Hamble in the final. 

While the whites were busy on cup duty results elsewhere in the league results went the Radian sponsored U15s way meaning that without kicking a ball Salisbury were crowned league champions. Manager Ed Searle said “it is the great dedication of the boys who turn up every week to training and the way they have learned to adapt to a formation and playing style that the back room staff have drilled into them this season that have enabled the team to reap the rewards”.

Salisbury U13s Blacks Suffer the Cup Blues. 

The Blacks 15 game winning streak (all competitions) was halted today in the Tommy Traynor Trophy Semi Final. 

Eastleigh Youth were the hosts on a Soggy and overgrown Wide Lane sports grounds. The Blacks failed to adjust to the pitch throughout the 1st period (trying to stick to their usual short passing game) and Eastleigh capitalized through the clever deployment of the long ball up to their pacy powerful centre forward, who finished his two early chances well. This came as a shock to the Salisbury lads who have not been in this position all season. How would they respond? They started to turn it around but Eastleigh added a 3rd just before the HT break. It was going to be an uphill struggle for the Whites now.  

The Blacks found a rhythm after the break and their play improved greatly. Leo Penna rifled in a finish off the post from 20 yards to give the whites some hope. The Whites then dominated the rest of the match without getting the rub of the green (well more like sloppy brown than green). Whilst they were push for further goals to get back in the game they inevitably left openings at the back, eventually allowing Eastleigh a 4th to kill the contest.  

MOTM and Captain Matt Webb should be proud of his and his team’s performance. Playing Away against a team from leagues above for the 3rd time in this competition will be something the team can learn from and be proud of. The Blacks would like to wish Eastleigh Youth FC the best of luck in the Final.

Whites under 12’s come from behind to reach the league cup final 

Andover New Street 1-2 Salisbury FC  

Salisbury went to Andover knowing 1 more win would see them in final. And Salisbury played there socks off from start to finish after going 1-0 down through a mistake between Jack Weeks and Tyler Andrews, the Whites never gave up there spirit.  

Second half Salisbury were doing everything right apart from scoring. Until Rory Cameron passed a ball across the box for Valentin Daskalov to strike a thunderbolt of a shot that gave the keeper no chance. Before that crucial second goal Salisbury had made so many chance to win it from Dylan Beauchamp, Callum Wohler and Archie Ford. After his mistake in the first half, skipper Tyler Andrews came up for the corner where the ball dropped to his feet to toe poke it into the corner which saw the Whites go on to win the game. 

Huge credit to Andover New Street for giving us a tough, aggressive match. Salisbury will now play local rivals Alderbury in the final on 27th April at Andover New Street first team stadium.  

Man of the match was Matthew Robinson who put a solid performance from start to finish. The Blacks now have the aim of protecting their 100% league win record, and sealing promotion at their 1st attempt. 

Mini Soccer round up 

Salisbury U9's played Winchester Youth Blue today in two terrific games. The young whites started slowly and conceded some early goals. Despite a harsh penalty decision, they showed terrific character and grew into the game, and shaded the second half. The final game was very entertaining, with plenty of goals, and end to end football. Winchester were clinical and edged past us in the final few minutes. In difficult conditions, the boys all applied themselves brilliantly. Great effort boys. 

Salisbury FC U8's played an excellent game of football against Sarum youth today. Great performance from all the boys, nearing the end of the season but are still consistently proving their quality. MOTM Alfie Trollope, huge contribution going forwards scoring and creating goals.  

Saturday saw Salisbury FC U7’s make the log trip to Kings Worthy for a development game against Worthy Reds U7’s. The whites got off to a slow start but within 5 mins they settled really well making great passes and having passion of the football.  

As the game went on the white grew stronger and there football got better and better and created many many chances. The team worked very hard for each other all over the pitch and it was great to see how they are now all gelling really well and understanding each other's way of playing the game. 

As always when we play Worthy Reds the game was very competitive and played with a great spirit with every child enjoying just playing football. It was a great game and a real joy to watch and see how well the teams played, certainly one of the best games of the season. 

It was a tricky decision but Man of the match went to Harry Turner for putting in a great performance and showed great attitude towards the game. We would like to thank Worthy for hosting the game and for a very competitive and entertaining match.
