Charlbury U18 Ladies Win Thames Valley Counties League

Charlbury Ladies bounced back into action after a long lay off due to the Covid break to complete their debut season in the Thames Valley Counties League U18 Northern Section. The ladies remained unbeaten all season and won the league by 3 clear points from rivals Abingdon United.This now completes back to back titles after winning last years OGFL U16’s league.

With a predominately young squad of players, mainly 15 & 16 year olds we went into the season not knowing what to expect but after a few games we realised that we were going to be challenging for the title. A fine 6-0 away win at Abingdon in the late autumn sunshine was the standout game of the season which cemented our position at the top. After the lay off the ladies resumed at full speed and remained unbeaten through to the end.

We have now taken the decision to enter the full ladies league and expect to compete in the ladies 3rd division west. This will be a great challenge in stepping up to full ladies football but who knows… a 3rd title??

Charlbury Introduce New Girls U8’s Team

Charlbury Town Youth Football Club have further strengthened their girl teams with the introduction of a under 8 team to add to their already existing under 18 & under 12 teams.

After a stop start last 18 months of training the U8 girls finally got to play some competitive matches agains Witney Vikings and Kiddlington recently. The girls had a great deal of fun and gained much needed experience of playing football against opposition.

Plans are now to enter into the OGFL for next season 2021/22 in the under 9’s league.

Anyone interested or if you have any queries (must be in years 3 & 4 for the next school year) please ring Phill Heath 07809867282

U14s REGAIN WDYFL ‘A’ LEAGUE TITLE

Charlbury Town Youth u14s provided a bit of good news for the club in what has been a difficult football season for all so far in winning the WDYFL ‘A’ league title for the 2020/21 Autumn/Winter season.

With football ceased in January, the league took the view that points per game was the fairest way to conclude matters – and although it would have been nice to finish things off on the pitch in the final game – Charlbury had already beaten the second place side and the chasing teams still had to play each other so it feels fully deserved.

This means that the lads achieved their primary aim of winning back the title that they won as u12s – and made it four major trophies now as a group together in the last 3 seasons (with one or two others robbed by COVID!). From the coaches viewpoint, the best thing about the success has been the significant contribution of all members of the squad – they all hold themselves to such high standards and it is a joy to be involved.

Charlbury U15s win WDYFL

The postponed final of the WDYFL took place on Sunday 6th September at Clanfield against arch rivals Ducklington.

Whenever we play Eddies team, the game is always close and yesterday was no exception going into extra time with the score at 0-0. Whilst Charlbury had the greater possession and better chances, Ducklington could have stolen it with the very last kick of extra time, with the ball just going past Charlbury’s post.

However a dominant spell, by the fitter side in the first half of extra time saw Lewis Pretorious and Billy Sweet hit two amazing goals to give Charlbury a deserved and comfortable lead.

However, although Charlbury continued to press they got caught with a long ball over the top that fell between the defence and goalkeeper leaving the Ducklington striker to tap in the ball to create a nervous 2 minutes finale.

Charlbury held on and lifted their first cup ! More to follow….

Charlbury Girl League Winners

OMGFL U16 League Winners

Charlbury U16 Girls were recently awarded the OMGFL League title. After the suspension of the season the OMGFL committee met to determine who the league winners were throughout the age groups. Many formulas were discussed, many calculator buttons were pressed and the decision was to award the title to the team that had the won the highest average points per game played through the season.

With 30 points from 11 games Charlbury Girls were the clear winners, they have added the league title to the County Cup which they won in 2018 and a treble of the League Cup is still up for grabs, Covid-19 permitting.

Well done girls, thoroughly deserved!!

U13s progress to KO Cup Final

CTYFC u13s 6 Brackley Athletic 1

The u13s hosted Brackley Athletic for a KO cup semi final on Sunday. Despite constant rain and some delicate negotiations with the groundsman and officials, the game got the green light to go ahead.

Charlbury started well, and had the upper hand in the early exchanges, the breakthrough coming following a fine cross field pass from Tyra Aitken, which was finished clinically by Toby Ball. A couple of glorious chances were missed by Charlbury in search of the second goal, before the key moment in the match just before the end of the half. A rasping volley from Harry Hinton was bound for the top corner, but the Brackley centre back threw out a hand and tipped it over – resulting in a straight red card and a penalty kick. After a little bit of discussion over who fancied it, Tyra stepped up to smash it in the top corner – 2-0 at half time.

Brackley came out strong in the second half, and got their reward with a fine free kick struck in from 20 yards, reducing the arrears to 2-1 and threatening to make it a typically nervy affair. However, the comeback did not last long, with a Toby corner volleyed in by Tyra almost immediately, restoring the 2 goal cushion.

After this Charlbury completed the match in resounding fashion – Tyra adding two more goals to his tally to make it 40 for the season, and Ollie Jarvis scoring the final goal with a great header from a Toby free kick.

An impressive performance from the whole squad, defensively rock solid throughout and pacy and dangerous on the attack. Great credit to the players in reaching a major final in 3 straight seasons, and the attitude and teamwork of the squad is a pleasure to be part of. This will (hopefully) be played under lights on 27th April, and hopefully like the last two they can finish up with the trophy!

Final under floodlights beckons for U14s

A scintillating 70 minutes saw Charlbury U14s edge a very competitive game vs Bampton Town at Enstone.

Bampton arrived at Enstone having previously being unbeaten in all their games played this season however soon realized that they were in for a battle. With the normal Enstone wind prevailing and Charlbury kicking down hill, the first half was a tense affair with neither side showing dominance.

However after the break, Charlbury got stronger and missed two or three very reasonable opportunities to take the lead. Backed up by the defense that ensure the leagues top scorer never got a shot on goal, the game looked to be heading for extra time when in the very last minutes of the game, doggid determination saw Lewis battle through and bundle the ball over the line.

A richly deserved win, in a hugely competitive game. The final, v Ducklington is scheduled to be played on Tuesday 28th April at 6.30pm at Clanfield FC
