Up to twenty boys have continued training on Saturday mornings at
the sports field and despite losing some of their friendly matches
they eventually had their first success with a 6 - 5 victory over
Radstone United followed by a creditable 2 - 2 draw against an Old
Helmdon side very much older than the current side.

In the game against Radstone, Helmdon were able to turn out in their
new kit which has been sponsored by Sony and our thanks goes to Miles
Garner for arranging this together with Vanessa Vicars and the Monogram
Company for sorting out the logos.
Although it was originally intended that there would be an age limit
of 15 on the training sessions it has been decided that this will
not be the case and training will continue next season for any boys
or girls over 10 years old.
Thanks goes to John Watson, Gary Somerton and Dave Truelove for their
help during the season. The date training commences will be advertised
on the village notice boards and the web site.

In March 2001 the Sports Club began taking training sessions for the
ten to fifteen year olds interested in forming a team to enter a local
With the crisis involving the foot and mouth epidemic, it was
decided to switch the venue from the sports field to the school
field. The coaches were delighted to have thirteen boys turn
up at the first session, which was basically a game to allow
those present to get to know each other. This was particularly
important, as there were a couple of boys from Brackley who
did not know those boys from the village. With Geoff Watson
on one side he was able to use his vast experience of playing
for Helmdon in each of the last ten decades, to lead his team
13 boys turned out for training
in the first week
The second week we had an extra two boys turn up with several
telling us that their friends were coming the following week.
We started off with warm up exercises and then into a training
routine which is designed not only to improve their fitness,
but also their skills with and without the ball.
Old Trafford is only one step away
Unfortunately we had to call off the third week because of the
adverse weather conditions, this was a shame but there was little
we could do. It was very frustrating when we discovered there
was hardly any snow in Brackley compared to that in the village.
We are always very pleased to welcome new players. For the foreseeable
future we will remain at the school field and anyone interested in
playing should come down on a Saturday morning from 10am to 11am or
ring Dave on 760362 or John on 760211
