FC Lakeside U12’s Division 1 winners 2018

On Sunday Lakeside FC won the Under 12 Division 1 Cheltenham Youth League having won an incredible 18 out of 18 home and away matches.
The season finale was a tense affair in the Forest of Dean against Ruardean Hill Rangers who had title ambitions of their own having won 16 of their 17 league games, their only loss to date being away to Lakeside. A win for Ruardean would have resulted in a play-off match to decide the league winners, a win or draw for Lakeside would see them take the title. Lakeside had not conceded more than one goal in a league game all season with the exception of an 18-3 win, so the title was firmly in our sights when we took a deserved lead with 15 minutes on the clock. The team battled hard for each other and saw the game out to chalk up a seventh clean sheet of the season and more importantly a league title. This is a fantastic achievement for the team and a progression from the CYL under 11’s league season from which they also emerged unbeaten, winning both the autumn and winter mini-leagues, in addition to the Cinderford, Abbeymead and Quedgley summer tournaments!!!

FC Lakeside Easter Tour

As many of you will know and indeed a lot of you are involved, FC Lakeside are currently piecing together our Easter visit to Holland. Our friends Oude Maas are also working hard at the moment to put on a great weekend together for us as usual. This football experience is very special to FC Lakeside and Oude Maas and a lot of time and effort go into our tour to make certain your son/daughter have an amazing football tour at quite simply some of the best facilities in Europe.

The point of this post, is to highlight that unfortunately we are 6/7 players down on our normal numbers. FC Lakeside would like to ask you as managers/coaches and parents to please think about any players who may not be directly involved with our club but would like to benefit from this great trip. Maybe school friends of your son/daughter or cousins etc.

To add to this, we can also now ask if we have any FC Lakeside U11’s who would like the chance to go. This will not stop them from being involved next year.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. Our tour is very important to FC Lakeside.
