King’s Worcester Football Round-Up 2021-22 Season

King’s Worcester Football has had a great 21-22 season. With 94 fixtures, over 250 boys have taken part in the sport competitively.   

The commitment and numbers in training has been fantastic this year. At senior level we had over 40 pupils turning up to training for each session, meaning lots of competition and quality from which to choose the three senior teams.

1st Team (FF – U6)

The First team secured a draw at Worcester Sixways Stadium against RGS Worcester, which meant the Challenge Cup will be kept in our cabinet for the seventh year in a row.

The team grew and improved as the season went on and finished strongly, with only one defeat in the last seven games. Top goal for the season scorer was Dylan Briggs and player of the season was Ben Amos, “the rock at the back”. A special mention also has to go to Jack Havercroft for being ever present and super consistent throughout, playing all 15 first team fixtures.

Player of the Season: Ben Amos

2nd Team (FF – U6)

This season, King’s 2nd XI have proven to be a difficult team to beat. Marshalled from the centre by their captain, Dan Duke, over time they established themselves as a solid team who looked dangerous each time they attacked. A great collective team spirit and some tremendous individual player development mean the foundations are in place for another strong season next year.

3rd Team (FF-U6)

A great season of football for the Thirds this year. They have played every game with determination, team spirit, confidence and resilience. Playing nine games and winning five, drawing two and only losing two, the boys should be very proud of themselves! We grew in confidence with our patterns of play as the season progressed and it was fantastic to see so many boys expressing themselves on the pitch. It has been a very commendable season for this group of boys, with a very proud coach!

U15 Squads

The U15s have had an enjoyable season with pleasing technical progress being made by most of the squad.  Against Wolverhampton Grammar and RGS the As played with real attacking intent throughout to achieve resounding wins.  Their inconsistent results were due to player absences rather than any lack of effort on the pitch.  The Bs started slowly but looked stronger and stronger as the term progressed, winning three out of their last four games.

U14 Squads

The U14 A team, captained by Finn Worth, are graced with skilful players throughout the team and played attractive football during the season.  Harry Rothwell and Leo Cunningham ended as joint top goal scorers and Louis Healey-Maddams was voted player of the season.  The U14Bs had a successful season; more games were won than lost and they showed good progress. They played good passing football and scored a number of impressive team goals

U13 Squads

Following a challenging start to the season with a new main coach and the players not having played together, the season got off to a slow start. However, all the players put in a lot of effort and application during training, which was then transferred onto the playing fields during the matches. In addition to this, individual skills and confidence have also increased, which will hold all players in good stead for next season. The three teams played ten games, winning four and losing six. It was also great to see a handful of girls joining in on the sessions.

U12 Squads

The boys in the U12 football teams have all made an outstanding start to their senior football career at King’s. Each team finished the season unbeaten, scoring a total of 69 goals whilst conceding only 11.  They deserve to be proud of the manner in which they conducted themselves and the focus they have shown on the core principles of play, encouraged by Mr Woodward.
