SAFFRON Walden Town U10 Blues team have completed another excellent league season, winning 17 out of 18 matches and most by a comfortable margin.

They finished with a total of 125 goals scored – an average of seven goals per game – and conceded only 15 goals throughout the season including keeping eight clean sheets. This is one of the best defensive records in all the U10 leagues across the region.

The top goal scorers, Amrik Braico, Aaron MacDermott and Alfie Moss scored over 100 goals between them.

Manager Jaz Sangha, supported by his coaching team of Shane Mills, Ollie Hudson and Luke Dorrington, encouraged an attractive, quick passing style of play whilst maintaining a solid defensive shape n.

The biggest win was 24-0 against Balsham in March. The Blues had several titanic struggles against rivals Aztecs, Spartak and Haverhill with several of these games decided by an odd goal. Their hardest-fought victory was coming from behind twice to defeat Spartak 3-2 at the end of April.

The boys represented the club in the correct manner and for their efforts were invited by Norwich Football Club for a session to play with the best teams in Essex, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. They represented Saffron Walden Football Club.

Full squad: Simi Sangha, James Inkley, Amrik Braico, Jacob Park, Aaron MacDermott, Alfie Moss, Mathias Davies, Robbie Draper, Alex Owens, Toby O’Malley, Jared Pilkington.
