U16’s Manager: Rob Nash Asst Coach: Scott Drysdale
We currently run two under 16 teams.
Our Blacks team play in the top division of the U16 Mid Wilts league (Blue Division) and our Reds team play in the 3rd division (Red Division).
Robert Nash manages the Reds Team and Simon Pope has taken on the Blacks Team. Both teams have had indifferent seasons so far.
Blacks have had a tough time after winning promotion last season they have come up against the best sides in the area. After 6 games they have won one, drawn one and lost four. But they are in the quarterfinals of the league cup after a good win over Frome in the last round.
Meanwhile, the Reds have won 2, drawn one and lost three. The three defeats have been frustrating as we were leading in all 3 games the first we were 4-2 up with 20 minutes to go and lost 5-4 and the game we drew well I still can believe we didn’t win (bad day at the office for our forward line). With a bit of luck we could have won all 6 as the games we won we have won convincingly.
In summary the future of the club is in good shape with the current under 18s and the two under 16 teams we have over 60 young players registered to play this is only good for the future of the club and has proved this season if they are good enough they will get a chance in the first team.
