CAYA Families,

Quick reminder - we are at GHES Saturday and Sunday for preseason training. The schedule is as follows:

11:00-12:10 - U8/U9 Boys
12:20-1:30 - U8/U9/U10 Girls
1:40-2:50 -  U10 Boys

We will be on the upper fields. Please ensure your player is dressed appropriately. As much as we would like them to look the part, we also want them to be warm and able to participate for the full session.

As promised here is the link to the NCCL schedule:

Please note there may still be some changes due to coach conflicts but we are working through those as we speak. However, the majority of games are set.

We hope this helps and if you spot any issues with your child's team schedule, such as teams playing two games at same time slot, etc. please communicate with your director. Also, it is important that if your child is going to a miss a game that it is communicated ahead of time to the coach.

We look forward to seeing all the players this weekend at GHES

11:00-12:10pm - U8/U9 Boys

This past weekend there were some unbelievable results in England both in the FA Cup and football league. Here is a quick recap of the major shocks and a few quick highlight videos for your child to watch.
Cambridge Untied 0        Manchester United 0
The U’s who currently lie in 13th place in League Twoc (4th tier of English football) incredibly forced a replay against Manchester United following a resolute defensive display. They will now go to Old Trafford where they will earn a large sum of money in gate receipts and TV money which will allow them to be financially secure for a number of years.

Bradford City arguably pulled off one of the biggest shocks EVER in FA Cup history. They trailed Chelsea 2-0 towards the end of the first half. The Bantams pulled one back before the break to go in 2-1 down. No one would have predicted what ensued, as Bradford went on to score 3 more goals in front of 6,000 traveling fans. A result like this to a premier league side would have been a shock but to the 7th place team in League One (3rd tier) is even CRAZIER!

To keep the cup shock theme going, Middlesbrough of the Championship (2nd tier) managed to record a clean sheet against the Champions of England, while registering two goals in the second half to record a famous victory away from home at the Etihad.

Finally, one other result which goes to show why we love this game of soccer… Blackpool who lie at the foot of the Championship table (24th place) traveled to Watford. The Seasiders were leading 2-0 af half time and must have thought the 3 points were in the bag, as they allowed Watford to score 3 goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half on their way to a 7-2 victory.
I guess the saying is true, "Its a funny old game!"

Finally, there will be an NCCL schedule update out to everyone tomorrow.
