ESFA Jersey U11s District Schools' Festival

Wokingham District headed to Jersey, in the Channel Islands, on Saturday 8th April to take part in the 43rd ESFA Jersey District Schools' Festival.

It was the second year in which Wokingham have attended the festival in which every participating association would play six games during the week at F.B. Playing Fields in St Clemens. This years' tour was again a huge success on and off the pitch and were able to end the week with their most successful tour record to date: Played 6, Won 5, Lost 1 - this was also the joint best record out of all the 18 teams competing during the week.

The tour ended a particular high as Wokingham were able to beat a very strong Potters Bar side 2-1 after coming back from behind.

This epitomised the team's attitude and determination to succeed which has been evident throughout the season. The tour was a great success and the boys thoroughly enjoyed exploring the island on top of the football.

Team Manager, Stuart Bevan, said, "The boys have been a credit to their schools and have set high standards throughout the year. It was great to see them continue to grow and have such a successful tour whilst representing Wokingham in this prestigious festival." Results from the tour below:

Game 1 vs Hackney (W 3-1 Z.Waight, N.Muza 2)
Game 2 vs St Albans (L 0-3)
Game 3 vs Newbury (W 4-1 N.Muza 2, Z.Waight, H.Goode)
Game 4 vs Thurrock (W 1-0 Z.Waight)
Game 5 vs Gloucester (W 4-0 B.Kingsbury, Z.Waight 3)
Game 6 vs Potters Bar (W 2-1 S.Morgan, Z.Waight) 

 Well done all

Woking vs Wokingham

Brilliance from Ballard and Mott as Wokingham seal another impressive win

This wet and windy affair saw these two local teams meet for the fourth time this season. But it was the weather conditions who had the upper hand from the start, both teams struggling to get a hold of the game in the opening stages.

Although Wokingham were unable to string a series of passes together, they looked the better side in the remaining minutes of the first half. Mott tested the keeper from long range on a number of occasions and down the other end Lewens was quick off his line and started the attacks with confidence.

The only goal of the half came in the 24th minute when a Wokingham corner found Mott with the ball at his feet towards the back post. He calmly hammered it home into the top corner to give the visitors the advantage.

As the game opened up in the second half, Ballard started to enjoy the space he kept finding in the centre of the park. A great breakaway was thumped home off the post by Ballard – 0:2 to Wokingham.

The icing seemed to be on the cake when Mott and Ballard both collected a double to make it 4-0 in a matter of minutes. Woking continued to fight though and hit back through a looping header off a set piece.

The home side kept knocking at the door and after a injury to Lewens the Wokingham defence were all over the place. Woking took advantage and slotted in another.

From there on in the game continued as an end to end duel but it was Wokingham who once again came away as victors. The score, 2-4.
