THE SUNDAY LEAGUE TEAM WHO HAVE BEEN
PROFESSIONALLY FILMING ALL THEIR MATCHES SINCE 1990 !

WE HAVE FINISHED RUNNERS-UP !

Our 3-2 win Away to Camden Lock on Sunday 10th March (See picture left) ultimately ended up as being good enough for us to secure the Runners-Up spot in Division Five this season after Mill Hill Club De Futbol Seconds…the only team who could catch us…lost 5-1 to Champions London Orient the following Sunday (17th March). We thank London Orient for treating that match seriously when they had already won the title with a game to spare !
We left our challenge for the title too late and it was a number of costly one-goal defeats before the Christmas break that cost us, particularly when we were leading in some of those matches and conceded very late winners.

However, finishing Runners-Up has given us automatic promotion to Division Four anyway…which was our aim at the start of the season now that most of our players are 18. It is a great achievement for our young team, but we will need to strengthen the squad again for next season with a number of players now having to work on Sundays or concentrating on doing other things.

  

BARNET SUNDAY LEAGUE CUP DRAWS FOR SEASON 2023-2024

We are now OUT of all five of the Barnet Sunday League’s Cup competitions that we entered this season following our 3-1 defeat to Nissi II in Group E of the North London Challenge Cup on Sunday 24th March. That’s because the other two teams in the Group, Shentree Athletic and Northumberland Park Rangers have both dropped out after progressing unexpectedly in other Cup competitions, so the match against Nissi II effectively turned out to be a straight knockout match in the end.

We were knocked out of the BSFL Shield (the Cup for all teams in Divisions 5 & 6) after losing 8-1 at Home to fellow Division Five side Enfield Albion on Sunday 17th March, and that competition had the best chance of us reaching a Final.

We were also knocked out of the Richard Martin Memorial Cup (for teams from Divisions Three to Six who do not have a backlog of fixtures) after losing 4-2 Away to Northumberland Park Rangers in the First Round on Sunday 3rd March.

Earlier in the season we were knocked out of both the Roger Jones Senior Challenge Cup (which is a competition for all teams in the League) after losing 4-1 at Home to Division Two side Real Menza in the Second Round on Sunday 1st October and also the John Motson Junior Challenge Cup (for selected teams in Division One to Six) after losing 4-1 Away to Division Three side AC Finchley in the First Round on Sunday 26th November.

  

CROWDFUNDING SPONSORSHIP

Instead of looking for one (or more) major sponsors, we have set up a GoFundMe campaign for our club members, supporters and You Tube highlights subscribers to donate however much they want individually. This will enable our young players to be able to afford to play for us when most of them are either at University or at 6th Form College and we will then be able to pay our affiliation fees, pitch fees, Referees fees and other expenses while charging each player only a £50.00 membership fee for the whole season.
Charging a small flat fee fee per player for the Season instead of paying subs for each match is how most adult Sunday League teams now operate, but normally with the help of a small number of major sponsors rather than up to 1,000 individuals paying small amounts. (We now have well over 1,000 subscribers on the hughesvideo You Tube channel watching our match highlights).
The link to our GoFundMe campaign where you can contribute with an online payment is https://gofund.me/b6a18645 or you can scan the QR code to take you to the donation page.

  

LONDON F.A. SUNDAY JUNIOR CUP DRAW FOR SEASON 2023-2024

Unfortunately, due to the First Round of this competition falling on a date (Sunday 24th September) where roughly half of our regular players were away for the weekend sorting out their University arrangements and starting Freshers Week, we had to concede our match Away to Metropolitan Sunday League Senior Division side Thames City Blues. This match was due to be played in Sidcup, South-East London, which made matters worse as other registered players also made themselves unavailable because of the difficulty in getting there without a lift.

This is the first time in over 30 years of entering London FA Sunday Cup competitions that we have ever had to concede a match and we hope it will be the last.
