Update: Youth teams and Walking Football
Written by Kay Lathey
We are looking for volunteers who would like to have a go at Walking Football.
The U12 and U18 sides have both been in action over the last few days.
Slough Town U12s travelled to Cherry Orchard to meet Burnham Blues in the League Cup on Sunday. It was a freezing cold afternoon with a biting wind. After numerous chances, it looked like it wasn't going to be Slough's day until Steven opened the scoring - but Burnham came back with an equaliser before the end of the half.
Going into the second half Harry hit a perfect long (very long) range shot into the net. This was followed by goals from Daanish and Malachi to make it 4-1. The Burnham keeper had a great game and it was a game played in really good spirit. The U18s took on Colney Heath at a very wet Arbour Park (wet and cold) on Tuesday night in their first game of two this week.
It was a thoroughly unpleasant evening for football, but the lads pulled off a 2-0 win with Jack Sharman and Antony Jefferies scoring for the young Rebels.
They currently sit fourth in the league with one game in hand. On Thursday night, they travel to Clanfield for their League Cup game.
On Saturday 3rd December we will be joined at the game against Frome Town by a Walking Football team who train at Burnham Park (advertised in the matchday programme). During half time they will be participating in a 10-minute demonstration game.
We are looking for volunteers who would like to have a go at Walking Football, or who play regularly. All you will need is appropriate footwear and a willingness to join in. We will sort out some shirts.
Walking Football is a great opportunity for everyone to have a go at playing irrespective of age or fitness. The challenge though is not to run! Please let Kay Lathey know if you are interested in playing. We will be looking for 6-7 players.
