Kent FA County U18 Youth Cup Report (VDC Athletic)

St Peter FC U 18’s defeat top Kent League side VCD Athletic to go through to the next round of The Kent FA County U 18 Youth Cup

The St Peter FC U 18’s had to battle hard to secure victory against a very physically strong, VCD Athletic FC team on Sunday. Having caught the 7am Red Eye flight from Jersey  the team enjoyed a hearty breakfast at Gatwick before departing  to the Crayford home of VCD.

Both of these teams reached the semi final stage last season so it had all the signs of being a close fought game. The game had been in some doubt as there had been five consecutive days of rain. However, on arrival they found a first class playable pitch in a fine three year old stadium.

The game kicked off in high winds with torrential rain forecast and threatening. The first 10 minutes was a case of both teams  testing each other out. St Peter then took control of the game and dominated for most of the first half  creating several chances. Their midfield trio of Tommy Boarer, Toby Ritzema and Luke Lister were bossing the game, creating chances without finding the final telling pass for Ryan Marcinko,  Danny Fernandes or Jan Bentley to find the back of the net. Home keeper Harry Ebdon was in inspired form, keeping out a number of close range shots. The major threat to the Jersey team, in the main came from VCD’s attempts to break at pace using a fine left winger Reece Mclennan, it took a few forays before Rhys Thomas got his measure and increasingly got the better of him to contain what appeared to be a major threat. Towards half time VCD came more into the game and Kacper Smilek and Declan Pyne  at the centre of the Saints defence  were kept busy containing  some determined attacking. Goalkeeper Dan Medcalf was called on to show super safe handling from long range shots and crosses into the area. Half time came no goals to show for the efforts of either of the two teams.

St Peter started the second half at a high tempo , playing some delightful one touch passing football through their midfield trio.  Bentley, Boarer and Ritzema all brought saves from the home keeper. In the 53rd minute after some good play from the back, Toby Ritzema picked up the ball just inside his own half, went past four defenders,  to take him to the edge of the VCD area,  Danny Fernandes pulled wide to drag two defenders out of the middle and Toby went the other way past the last defender and slotted a magnificent goal wide of the keeper to give St Peter a deserved lead. They kept up the pressure from the re start playing their high tempo passing and seeking a second goal.  In the 65th minute VCD were awarded a disputed free kick and  from the attempted clearance the ball  was returned into the Saints area  with players unusually out of position, they left Medcalf exposed and the VCD striker picked up the loose ball and slotted it home to make it 1-1. By now the rain was falling heavily but St Peter reacted positively  surging forward playing some outstanding football and in the 72nd minute they re-took the lead after winning a corner which Luke Lister whipped in to the far post and Kacper Smilek rose high to place the ball wide of the keeper. VCD had to raise their game to stay in the competition and they did just that. They reverted to the long ball trying to use the pace of their accomplished wide men however St Peter showed that they are not only a fine football team they could battle physically when required. With Dan Medcalf dominating his goal area and Kacper Smilek managing the defence superbly there were no further clear cut chances and the Jersey team go into the draw for the next round having got the better of a very good if somewhat physical VCD Athletic.   Result VCD Athletic FC 1 St Peter FC 2

After the game Karl Benest and Anthony Lister were delighted with both the performance and the result.

Benest said”  This was a real team performance against a top class VCD team. Everyone gave 100% including the 3 under 16’s that came on in the second half. Jamie (Ritzema) Noah (Risby) and Tom (Proffitt) were inspirational and they gave everything to help us gain this result. It was doubly pleasing after the first team were disappointingly  forced to pull out of the Senior Kent Cup as they had insufficient players following the call up of St Peter players for the Bulls and the Island. I would like to give a special mention to Rhys Thomas who was superb, he gave everything and nothing passed him all game. ”  Lister said ”I was so proud of the whole team, it was a fantastic performance from the whole squad and Toby’s goal was sensational”

Team: Dan Medcalf; Rhys Thomas, Andre Dias, Declan Pyne, Kacper Smilek: Jan Bentley, Toby Ritzema, (C), Luke Lister, Danny Fernandes: Ryan Marcinko.

2019 – 2020 Pre Season Information

A big welcome to all players and parents of the St Peter FC Academy.

2019/20 season – The 101st season of the Club.

St Peters FC Academy welcomes all players, parents, coaches, sponsors and supporters to a new season. The 2019/20 season promises to be an exciting but challenging one.

Our facilities at both Rue des Vignes St Peter and St Georges Preparatory School are looking in really good condition, despite the long dry spell of weather, thanks to the careful preparation put in by our fine team of groundsmen at both venues. As usual we start this season with our two soccer schools which are attended by young players from around the Island. On the 29th July Premier Giants Everton FC, are sending over 8 of their professional coaches to run the much-loved Everton Summer Camp. This is always an exciting occasion with the coaches applying their unique touch and humour to making this a really fun way of learning new skills. This year we are privileged that Jersey Dairy are sponsoring the event and providing the opportunity to purchase some of their first-class products like ice cream, milk and flavoured varieties etc. As Everton FC are fully aware that this is our centenary year, we feel sure that they will have some surprises in store.

The following week w/c 5th August, Southampton FC‘s Saints Foundation will be running their own soccer school at our St Georges venue. This will be run on a slightly different basis with fewer numbers and therefore providing the opportunity for greater level of one to one coaching. If you haven’t as yet registered there is still time to do so. You need to register directly with the Saints Foundation and full details are on the www.stpeterfc.com web site

This season our aim will be first and foremost, that all of our players enjoy their football both playing and the coaching sessions. It is important that you always listen carefully to your coaches and if anything isn’t clear, they will want you to let them know.

Remember at St Peter we set the standard for always playing the game in the right spirit.

Please remember to accept the referee’s decisions and never argue with them. Whilst we always go onto the pitch with the intention of winning, sometimes we will come up against teams who on the day may play better than us. Always respect your opponents and shake their hands and those of the officials, both before and after the game.

We have some very fine players in our Academy throughout all of the age groups and providing you listen carefully to your coaches and show determination and commitment, you can only continue to improve.

We are extremely proud of the fact  that over the last couple of months 8 of our Academy players have either signed for professional clubs are have been invited to trial with them.

Our Under 18’s have been outstanding over the past 4 seasons and have been Jersey Champions in each of those years. Last season this group of players won every match they played in Cup and League in the Channel Islands including becoming Channel Island Champions by beating the champions of Guernsey and going on to beat the rest of Jersey.

We will also again  be entering this team into the Kent FA County  U 18 Youth Cup, a competition that has 64 entrants. Last season we reached the semi-final and although it’s a big ask, I am sure this year’s squad will be aiming to at least get to the final.

At the younger ages we want above all for you to develop your game, both with individual skills and concentration on teamwork. We want you to express yourself on the field of play. We appreciate during the learning process mistakes will be made. Whilst it’s our aim and it’s nice to win, the real gain is when you continue to improve as a player. The competitive element comes with our U 15 , U 16’s and U 18’s when winning becomes a priority whilst continuing to play the game in the right spirit.

We will continue to build on our relationship with Gillingham FC, as this offers our young players the opportunity to experience exactly what becoming a professional footballer entails. You spend time as a member of the Gillingham Academy and will represent them in a competitive match. It is also the perfect stage to demonstrate to them, the talent we have at St Peter.

It is our intention to enter our U 11, U13 and U 15 teams into the Joulleville Sartilly, French International Tournament at the end of June 2020.

We plan to invite professional coaches to work with our own coaching team to the benefit of our young players. You can be sure that if you have outstanding ability, we will ask our contacts in the pro game to take a look at you.

We have spoken about what St Peters can do for you and we would like to finish by asking you to do something for St Peters!

We would like to add to our playing numbers, in the middle age groups 12 to 15. We need your help to enable us to do so. Please speak to your school chums, friends and even next-door neighbours. If they like football let them know of the warm welcome, camaraderie, and great coaching that they will get at this club, invite them along to try us out. For every new player that you introduce, that signs for St Peter, the club will give you a £15 voucher of your choice just let your coach know of the introduction and they will progress your entitlement.

One final request is that we ask all parents to please pay the club subscription as soon as possible. The facilities, the activities and the kit and equipment are funded solely by our subscriptions, which are amongst the lowest in the Island and of course the kind generosity of our highly valued  sponsors. Early payment is the best way to help us to keep the Academy viable and providing outstanding opportunities and facilities for all of our playing membership.

Good luck to you all for the season ahead, we look forward to the continued development of both individuals and teams. Enjoy your football and be proud to represent this fine club.

To all parents, thank you for your continued support and we look forward to meeting with you as the season progresses.

Your coaches will be touch with you soon to let you know when training will recommence.

On behalf of all our coaching team and all members of the Committee,  Have a great season

Jersey Dairy Sponsor the 16th Everton Soccer Camp

Featured

 Everton FC Summer Camp will be returning to St Peter FC for the

 16th consecutive year.  From the 29th July to the 2nd August 2019

             This year the event will be sponsored by Jersey Dairy.

Sixteen consecutive years is a long time and it reflects just how successful the Everton Summer Camp is with young boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 14.

Sean Robertson and his experienced coaching team love coming to Jersey. They travel to many different places over the year, including the United States and the Caribbean, but they insist that St Peter, Jersey tops their popularity list.

They have over the years, honed their format to engage totally, with the young players, to make this a week of fun and learning that those attending just love.

With 8 FA qualified and highly experienced coaches from the Premier League giants, Everton FC, promise another absorbing and challenging week  for those attending. They aim to encourage the learning of new skills, coupled to having plenty of fun and enjoyment to make this, yet again, a week to remember. Depending on the number of girls registering it is hoped female coaches will be in attendance.

Sean said “ whilst we endeavor to develop individual skills, we look to foster the need for teamwork and to enhance communication skills both on and off the pitch. We do this by giving the youngsters what they love, plenty of time to play small sided matches and to learn and practice new ball skills.” 

He went on to say, “we are always impressed by the number of talented players who join us each year, some new faces and many familiar ones, who have been coming to this event over a number of years.”

Brian Foulser, Chairman of St Peter FC Academy said “ this popular event has been sold out every year for the past decade, there are just 160 places available and as in previous years we urge those interested from around the Island, to avoid disappointment by reserving a place without delay. The cost is unchanged from last year at just £120 with a discount of £15 applied to St Peter FC registered players. This is for the entire week Monday to Friday  08:45am to 3:30pm commencing Monday the 29th July”.

The participants can be checked in from 08-45 am  and should be checked out and collected by 3:30pm. Children should come with a packed lunch and adequate water. The St Peter food kiosk will however be open throughout the week to enable any top up refreshments to be purchased.

All participants will receive an Everton FC certificate  and gifts  and a number of awards will be made to those most deserving, at the awards ceremony to be held at the end of the week, on Friday afternoon. Parents are welcome and indeed encouraged  to attend this special occasion.

To register please complete our official application form, which can be found by visiting our www.stpeterfc.com website,  by emailing evertonweekjersey@gmail.com or by telephoning  Marguerite Gilley on 07797 908280 (office hours).

We invite all aspiring young football players from across the Island, between the age of  5 and 14 to join us for the football event of the year, the Everton FC Summer Camp.

St Peter FC is delighted to announce that this years Everton FC Summer Camp will be sponsored in collaboration with Jersey Dairy
