U14s Lionesses reach League Cup Final

Congratulations to the U14 Lionesses for reaching the League Cup final for the second year running.

The girls beat Bedford away 2-1 on Saturday to book a place in the final which will be held on 24 March against either Kempston or Stotfold.

Despite only having 11 fit players the Lionesses controlled the game for most of the match. The team took a 2-0 half-time thanks to two excellent finishes from Elizabeth who had recovered just in time to play having been ill all week.

Despite the hosts getting a goal back in the second half the Lionesses held onto their lead without any further alarms to confirm their place in the final.

Kempston are the odds on favourite to win the other semi-final which would set up a Cup Final showdown between the League’s two leading sides at the U14 age group.

Well done Girls!

MKDDL REP. REQUIRED

More of our teams play in the MKDDL than any other League we enter, and it’s fair to say that the Club has a strong interest in ensuring the League continues to flourish and be run in an effective manner.
For the last four years, Ian Doggett had not only acted as our Club Representative, he has also been an MKDDL Committee Member – most recently Vice Chairman.
Ian is now stepping back, and the Club is very grateful for all his time and energy (particularly safeguarding the interests of WWFC).
It does mean that we now need a WWFC MKDDL Rep.
Our Rep. just needs to attend the 3 – 4 League meetings each season and vote on behalf of the club for any new rules or clubs joining. Then after each meeting, write up a short report on key points from the meeting to share them with the WWFC Committee and managers involved in the MKDDL. It’s really minimal commitment from that person, but a very good way of getting involved in wider club matters, other than just his/her own team.
This role is open to any potential WWFC volunteer involved with a team playing in the MKDDL, so please spread the word.
Anyone interested in knowing more, please get in touch with me Robert Hill.

THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

After working hard through the first few months of the season, all our teams and volunteers can get to enjoy a well-earned rest as we prepare for an exciting 2018.  The weather has done its’ best to get boots hanging up early this year, so matches will come thick and fast.  The Club also has many exciting initiatives to look forward to in the New Year. Top of the list is our Disability Football Sessions. The Club is determined to honour the memory of Zach Heath, and we will be delivering regular weekly community based sessions. We also have two new Under 7 teams kicking off in January, as well as many other exciting projects coming to fruition.
But nothing could be possible without the superb volunteer support we get across the Club. Add to this the great backing we receive from Club Sponsors, local Parish Councils, football authorities and local leagues.

So Woburn & Wavendon FC would like to wish all those associated with our Club a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS & A HAPPY NEW YEAR.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

WWFC has a host of exciting events & initiatives over the next few months. As with everything we do, nothing can happen without the tremendous time and support given by many volunteers. The more help we get, the lighter the individual load and the more we can provide to our community.

Right now we are looking for help with:-

 TOURNAMENT COMMITTEE

Like a well oiled machine, our Tournament Committee delivers two of the best tournaments around. We are looking for some volunteers from our younger teams to help out and learn the ropes. Great fun, and a vital part of WWFC now and in the future.

 DISABILITY FOOTBALL

A truly exciting and inspirational initiative, the Club would like to hear from any Level 1 coaches or above who would be able to offer an occasional hour on a Sunday morning as we look to establish the Club’s first weekly disability sessions.

 SAFEGUARDING OFFICERS

We are also looking for any team parents/helpers who would like to assist in a safeguarding capacity. It’s vital that the Club continues to provide safe and robust systems and procedures that allow everyone to enjoy their football.

 If you’d like to help out, the WWFC would like to hear from you. Email:- volunteer@ww-fc.co.uk

SAFEGUARDING A TOP PRIORITY

Woburn & Wavendon FC is all about delivering fun and excitement for all our members, and especially our young players.  The Club has a comprehensive system of checks, tools and procedures that help to ensure child safety is a priority.  We continuously look to update and improve these procedures so that safeguarding is maximised and risk minimised.

We would encourage all involved with our Club to read our Child Protection Policy:- http://ww-fc.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Child-Protection-Policy.pdf

This document has been in place for a number of seasons and its principles applied.

WWFC is blessed with two exceptionally good Child Welfare Officers.

For the Lionesses:- Clare Fisher | 07771 866949 | E-mail The Welfare Officer 

If you have any safeguarding concerns, they are here to help.

GREAT TIME FOR LIONS AT WEMBLEY

Following on from the great time the U13 Lionesses had on Friday when England entertained Germany, some of our U13 Lions had a go last night in the match against Brazil. Follow this link to see them competing in the half time entertainment:- https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ascn7fyYKsMbik5SXQ0TCrQzZr_M

No goals in the main match, but at least they found the back of the net ! Huge thanks to Vauxhall for their superb organisation and for making all this possible.

Poppies

The club this once again supported the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, through Poppies4Kits.

Thirty teams and an estimated 400 players wore adhesive poppies on their kits and showed their respect with a minutes silence prior to games. This year we raised over £450 for the charity.
