HVFC U18 5 – 0 Harefield U18

 

A convincing semi final performance over visitors Harefield United saw the lads comfortably reach the final of the Middlesex Senior Youth Cup, the only local cup to evade them in last years all conquering season.

After a bye in the 1st round, a 2-1 extra time 2nd round victory, away to Northwood, was followed by a 4 nil win at home to Bedfont Sports in the quater final.

The final will be played at the home of last seasons winners, North Greenford Utd, on Wednesday 4th March, kick off at 7.30pm.

Their opponents are Hanwell Town who reached the final with a 4-3 win over Hampton & Richmond in the semis and victories over Spelthorne Sports and Uxbridge in the earlier rounds.

Your support will be greatly appreciated by Nigel and his boys

Whats happening close season

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 virus has put a stop, for now anyway, to a great deal of the plans we had for close season but there is a bit of activity around the place.

Many local elderly and infirmed people are struggling during the current crises so a group of our local mums decided to do something about it. They formed the “Angel Mums” and raised funds in order to buy and distribute food parcels to those in need. Their initial efforts soon snowballed into a huge operation, so much so that they commandeered the club as their base from which they operate. We were only too pleased to pitch in and help out and we are determined to keep providing this service for as long as required.

Should you wish to contribute to the fighting fund you can do so via their justgiving link below.

In addition to the food bank, we have managed to get on with a bit of grounds maintenance  work as well. The annual verti draining, seeding and fertilising has begun on the main pitch and the ground work required to site the new new dugouts is also underway. A few bored committee members have also spent a bit of time cutting grass and generally tiding up the place but the social distancing rules has prevented us doing any other major works.

Hopefully things will improve in time for the new season to start as scheduled for the 1st week of August. If not so be it but make sure you all stay safe and well for when it does eventually start.

The Management Team

The committee are pleased to announce that the management team that bought about such major improvement at the end of last season have agreed to continue their works in the 2020 season. Simon Haughney (centre in picture) is to remain as manager of our 1st team, with a future remit to further develop youth football at Rectory Meadow. Simon will retain his management team of Paul Thomas (left) and Leon Soloman (right). Paul will be Simons right hand man in managing the team and Leon will assist with coaching and an active 1st team player, as well as giving his advice on team matters.

As a youngster Simon was a talented football player. He was identified at a young age and was picked up by Crystal Palace, where he spent 6 years before being released. Simon was selected to play for Middlesex County, he went on to captain the team, where he played alongside the likes of Peter Crouch, Stephen Reid and Sam Parkin.

After dropping out of the academy set up Simon spent some time playing Non League football, making appearances for both Yeading and Staines Town under Steve Cordrey, before deciding to concentrate on developing his business.

Outside of football Simon is involved with, well football. In 2000 he established Onside Football Coaching and have an affiliation to Hampton & Richmond Borough FC Academy, coaching all 25 youth teams, working with over 350 members on a weekly basis. Onside also run coaching sessions in schools, numerous afterschool clubs, PPA sessions, multi skills clubs and breakfast clubs.

All of the boys have a very clear vision of how they believe football should be played and are very keen to introduce their methods to our sides. They take over with the team bottom of the league but they are all very confident that they can show rapid improvement in performances, and in turn see us start to climb the table.

Welcome to the Ranch boys.
