“Callum Marques made some good saves on his debut, early in the game, when it looked like the result could go either way. Well done Callum.”

Maidenhead United Juniors
Maidenhead United Juniors coach Jordan was full of praise for his u7s Colts team as they netted some fantastic goals in this weekend’s match.
Shay was clinical in front of goal, scoring six, while Jack and Grace also found the target.
Reflecting on the performance, Jordan said: “Where to start? Thomas in goal made some fantastic saves. Guy and Henry both played outstandingly, getting that ball out of play and some great tackles. Well done to the wingers, up and down like yo-yos – Jack, Shay, Oliver, and Grace. Shay scored six goals to add to goals from Jack and Grace. Player of the Match went to Jack for his outstanding tackles and the attitude of never giving up.”
The u7s Magpies dominated their match against the Heart of Teddlothian this weekend.
Using the full width of the pitch they stretched their opponents well and Luke scored an impressive hat-trick to add to his growing tally of goals this season.
The Magpies remained on the front foot and Liam and Harry both added to the scoresheet. Defensively the side have also become a solid unit this campaign.
POTM was Harry, who scored his first goal for the team and produced an excellent display in defence and attack.
The u8s Colts travelled to play George Green this weekend where Fin turned the game in their favour with a quick-fire hat-trick.

Police were called to the River Thames between Cookham and Bourne End yesterday at about 3pm, to reports that a teenage boy had entered the water but hadn’t been seen to leave.
