A word from the manager

“Everyone at the Academy is very much looking forward to the game today. We have used the competition as another development opportunity for our Academy players. It has provided them exposure to Senior football where the physical and psychological demands are different to academy football. Now that we have reached the final it has added yet another dimension to their development.

The players have shown fantastic dedication and commitment throughout the season and the growth both individually and collectively has been excellent. They deserve this opportunity to showcase their talents against a very good Chesham team who will pose us many problems.

I am sure we will see a good game of football and help further promote the high standard of womens football in our local area”.
