Woburn U13 Lionesses come out top at the Moretonville 6-aside Tournament

11 matches unbeaten and without conceding a single goal the Lionesses bravely fought their way to the final against the swift and skilful Kidlington Youth team. The final match eclipsed the day with an early goal from Kitty Martin and a screamer at the end from Ruby Hogan to give the girls a much deserved victory and earning each player a winners medal and the opportunity to savour the coveted tournament winners trophy. Last years shield winners to this years trophy winners – what a tremendous improvement from the girls!

Congratulations to our UEFA B licenced coaches!

We’d like to recognise two of our club coaches who have now completed their Level 3 (UEFA B) qualification in coaching football. Jeremy Hall (coaches our U15 Lionesses) and Martin White (coaches our U13 Tornadoes) have dedicated an amazing amount of hours (off and on the pitch) to achieve this and we’d like to congratulate them on their achievement!

Supporting MK Dons off and on the pitch!

On Saturday (4/5/19) the MK Dons had a fantastic result and secured promotion to League One; the following day the stadium played host to the Tottenham Hotspur’s Legends with some help from us!

It’s great to see the club badge on the big screen!

LIONESSES WILDCATS AT WEMBLEY

Our youngest girls footballers had the experience of a lifetime on Saturday attending the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley. Not only did many of them get to be part of an amazing event, some lucky ones got to form part of the Wildcats Parade on the hallowed Wembley turf.  A huge thank you to all who made this possible, but especially to Pat Mancini and Andy Perkins who have worked tirelessly to make yet another magical football adventure come true.

Investing in Grassroots…Literally!

The drought of 2018 took a huge toll on a number of WWFC’s playing locations. Pitches on predominantly sand based soils dried out, and the grass never truly recovered.

As part of the FA’s Pitch Improvement Programme, WWFC looks to improve both the quality and robustness of all our playing surfaces. The aim is not only to reduce postponements, but also to increase participation levels on surfaces delivering the best quality football experience.

With this in mind, your Club has invested £3500 in deep seed drilling and fertilisation of pitches at Woburn, Aspley Guise and Little Brickhill. The process should ensure maximum germination of tough rye grass and deliver optimum surfaces ready for season 2019/20. 

Drill Seeding taking place at our Little Brickhill ground.

COMMUNITY CLUB STATUS ACHIEVED!!

Some excellent news for your Club…. Woburn & Wavendon FC is now officially recognised by the FA as “among the country’s best”.  We have attained FA Charter Standard COMMUNITY CLUB status, the highest level of accreditation achievable.

This certifies that your Club upholds the highest values that appeal to players, coaches, officials and supporters, and demonstrates to our community that WWFC offers a place where anyone can enjoy football in a safe and well organised manner.  It also places your Club at the forefront of significant national involvement and investment as we strive to both sustain and develop WWFC whilst delivering a framework for future community integration and participation.

None of this would be possible without the energy and expertise from the WWFC Committee and the huge commitment from all managers, coaches, volunteers and players.  Also a huge thank you to our commercial partners and the support we receive from Parish/District Councils and our County FA.

Our community is developing and changing fast. We’re ready to play an important part in delivering healthy and inspired communities for the future.
