Cambridge Guard of Honour

Two Didcot teams welcome the U's against the U's

24 February 2022

There will be two teams forming our Guard of Honour on Saturday when we welcome Cambridge United to the Kassam Stadium.

Didcot Town Boys FC Under 8s Reds

Squad: Lucas Bertram, Kian Barlow, Archie Langford, Seth Atkinson, Harrison Clark, Jaxon Smith, Louie Eadle, Logan Emsden-James, George Davies, Jacob Webb.

The team currently play in the Oxford Boys under 8s A league. Formed in 2020 they started off in the D league but have gone from strength to strength under the guidance of Simon Barlow (manager) and Alan Bertram (coach) and also not to forget the support of all the parents.

"It's been a fantastic journey already" Simon told us "and we're seeing the boys develop week in week out. They're now playing against the best teams in Oxfordshire so they know that they need to be on top of their game. Since joining the A league we have played 4 games, won 3 and lost 1 so we've definitely found our place and where the boys can develop.

"The boys have years ahead of them and many games, tournaments and training sessions to enjoy and get stuck into so long may it continue but ultimately its about having fun which today is all about.

Win together, lose together...


Didcot Town Under 10s Greens

Squad: Archie Junkison , Freddie Bayliss Gore , James Bertram , Charlie Collins , Kieran Norman, Lewis Fisher , Ella Grisbrooke , Leon Le Roux , Mehdi Mezlini, Samuel Olusile , Lucas Slipper , Jack Townsend , Jacob Aplin , Jack Dewitt, Arthur Junkinson , George Bailey , Jack Amos.

The Greens play in the Oxfordshire Youth Football league F.

"This is our second season together at Didcot Town and having progressed up a league from last season we continue to go from strength to strength" their Manager said. "Having started out as strangers they have bonded as a unit and now look like footballers. They are an exceptional group of children with impeccable manners and behaviour that makes them a pleasure to work with. Their development would not be possible without the parental commitment , which often goes unnoticed.

"Our aim is to enjoy football but also gain the skills/behaviours/Morals that sport gives and carry this into everyday life. We have seen this in abundance with this group of children and look forward to the future with them."
