2018 RAMMAR tournament at MTFC's Elcot Lane Ground - a great success, even the weather!

 

Marlborough Youth FC ( MYFC) hosted the annual RAMMAR (RAMsbury & MARlborough) tournament against Ramsbury FC in glorious sunshine on Sunday 3 June

 

Forty four teams totallimng 270 players took part across over eighty matches in what was a feast of football in front of a crowd estimated to be well over five hundred, all enjoying the football and the fine weather.   World Cup - move over.....!

 

There was something for ages at each end of the spectrum.  As well as the youth competition there was an exhibition of Walking Football, for those over the age of 55.

 

MYFC is now a large club with around 300 active players butthere hasn't been a regular home.  Previpously matches have been played at the Marlborough Rugby Club  Being so big and so fragmented as a Club, MYFC do not have a permanent home. As such they have in the past hosted the event at Marlborough Rugby Club on the Common, The College - both on the Watermeadows and on the synthetic pitches, also at St John's, that MArlborough Town's elcot Lane facilities were used.

 

MYFC and MTFC are working increasingly closely in partnership, aligning the two clubs and creating a smooth and natural transition from youth to senior football (some of our last season's U18 players are in fact now playing for MTFC, and MYFC hope that this will be a continuing feature into the future).

Pictures from RAMMAR were taken by Jeff Youd and can be viewed on his site by clicking here.

 

Ramsbury FC's Vice Chair, Jon Symon commented:  "Ramsbury Football Club and Marlborough Youth Football Club have been friendly rivals for some time and the annual RAMMAR Cup is always a highlight for both clubs.  We take turns each year to organise a superb festival of football.  This year's event was wonderfully hosted by Marlborough Youth Football Club, at Marlborough Town Football Club's ground in Elcot Lane, and saw the most teams participate ever with a noticeable increase of all girl Marlborough Angels teams, which was great to see. Although Ramsbury ended the day as outright winners of the RAMMAR Cup 2018, following two years of Marlborough victories, the excellent organisation, blazing sunshine and wealth of young local footballing talent made this year's RAMMAR Cup a huge success".

 

IN response, MYFC chair stuart Slater replied:  “Jon is right.  An amazing day and amazing youth football in our community. Well done to Ramsbury who were worthy winners! MYFC’s next annual event is the PEWMAR tournament, MYFC v Pewsey, same place at MTFC/Elcot Lane on Saturday1 September.  A date for your diaries!”

 

The Club has asked that to list the following for thanks for the very successful day:

Goodbye MYFC U18’s – the end of an era!

MYFC U18 teamMYFC U18 teamMYFC U18's have reached the end of their youth football days!  The team has been together since U7’s and for 11 years have progressed through all the successive age groups, now the first MYFC youth squad to have graduated to senior football with MTFC.  (As a parting gift they managed an excellent cup run - semi-final of the County Cup - and also won their league!)


Current Team Manager John Evans awarded 14 “Lifetime Achievement Awards” to those players who had been part of the club since they were just 7 or 8 years old (Josh Evans, Harry Milton, Sam Mocock, Elliot Smith and Jacob Smith).  Back then they were managed by Mike Milton and Wayne Presley.  Nine others (Tom Amer, Ben Drewett, James Richardson, Joe Spong, Arran Aujla, Jacob Bremner, Matt Snell, Sam Woodhouse and Ollie Campbell) initially joined Ramsbury Youth FC at Under 7 or 8 but the two age groups merged 4 years ago and continued as MYFC under the management of Richard Smith and Clive Spong.  Quite a journey to keep the boys playing football!

The lads have experienced all the highs and lows of football over the years, exciting cup runs, leaguetitles, relegations;  and there have been years when squads have been large (with match time rationed), then other years when it was difficult to field a team on match days!  Many players have come and gone but these 14 lads have stuck together and been the core of the team. A number of the players have also now played for MTFC reserves and will hopefully continue to do so, hopefully even break into the first team.  Overall, MYFC are delighted to be developing players capable of playing in the senior ranks.

John Evans said "Its fantastic that whilst these lads may have different friendship groups at school and at home, when they come together on Sunday for football they are just onestrong group.  They play for each other, support each other when things go wrong and celebrate together when we win.  They have been joined this season by the return of several lads who used to play for us and this has strengthened the group even more."

He adds:  “The lesson here for all the younger age groups is the importance of loyalty and team ethos.  The more a squad stick together the sweeter winning becomes and the harder times are easier to cope with. The pictures attached show the lads when they were younger and on their last ever match day for MYFC”.

Congratulations boys, MYFC heroes. You will be missed!

MYFC - Angels U11s (The Foxes) runners-up in their first season

Angels U11s Foxes April 18Angels U11s Foxes April 18The MYFC U11 Angels team (The ‘Foxes’) had already made everyone extremely proud by reaching the cup final in their first season together, having to win over some very talented teams on the way.  Playing against Highwoth U11 in the final, the game was already going to be tricky for both sides, not least as it was the cup final, but also due to extreme temperatures, meaning ice lollies and frozen water was going round before the game had even kicked off!
