A fantastic photo of nicks excellent save first half. We worked on the top hand save in training last Thursday very rewarding when it pays off in the game Poole where wining 1-0 at the time could have changed the game if they scored. Well done Nick Hutchings clean sheet love it⛔️

Jordan had a fantastic game for the soccerooos coming on at half time 1-0 down to Brazil after 45 minutes. Jordan's heroics kept Brazil at bay. even thou the soccerooos lost its important as a gk that you do your best & Jordan certainly did that well done buddy.

Between the Sticks senior coach Nick Hutchings wins the Red Insurance Southern Leauge Cup for Poole Town FC, in a very close encounter v Corby Town FC the score finished 0-0 but, Poole Town won the tie on away goals wining the cup from their 1-1 draw at Corby.
Nick did not play in the first leg Ryan Thorpe played making his debut & played very well. This is the first time Poole Town has won this trophy which is surprising looking at their history in football.
Well done to Nick, Ryan & Poole Town players some photos after the game. Jamie Wishen, Micheal Walker, James Wood, Robbie Yates,
Gaz was on the bench for Yeovil on Saturday v Scunthorpe & on the 38th minute Gaz had to come for injured Krysiak who suffered an head injury. During the game Gaz had to face a penalty which he saved. Yeovil went on to draw. So from goalkeeping coach to sub to playing great professional.
Kayla Randell was selected to go to Portugal with the England Schools training & playing (I mentioned this in an earlier post) this is a report from Kayla of her fantastic trip👍
It was amazing best week of my life I gained a lot of experience and learnt new things every girl put 110% into training and matches that lead to us winning both matches the first one against Sintra girls under 15's winning 6-0 then the second game was against Benfica girls under 16's winning 8-0. Everyone enjoyed there self and to top it off we spent the week with 2 England legends I had 3 training sessions with Rachel brown 1 to 1 which was really good also we had Rachel Yankey who was our team ambassador who was really nice they were both really good role models. At the end of the week about to leave the hotel Rachel brown very kindly gave me her goalkeeper gloves which was a real privilege.
Kayla has set off with the England Schools FA to Portugal to train and play at the Benfica Stadium. We wish kayla a fantastic trip. We are all very pleased for Kayla as she has worked very hard at training with all the coaches at BTS & it gives me Great pride that she has done so well from all those years ago when I worked with her at the Dorset Girls Centre of Excellence. I will get a report of her trip when Kayla returns.
Viney made his debut for Brockenhurst today kept a clean sheet and won 2-0. Pat McManus Brockenhurst manager said "if I had to give a score out of ten I would give him ten" well done Viney played really well made some smart saves during the game. Good start to his loan spell.
Viney in action for Poole town during the week against Sholing.
Just got home from a trip to Torquay to watch Jordan playing against Bromley in the FA Trophy because the Poole Town game v Biggleswade away was called off due to water logged pitch. Jordan played very well with a triple save in the second half. Torquay won 4-0 also Jordan had an interview in the match program. Well done mate keep up the good work👍⚽️
Just wanted to wish Mossy & Gaz all the best in the 3rd round of the FA Cup this weekend. Mossy is away with Bournemouth today v Rotherham & Gaz home with Yeovil tomorrow V Manchester United. I think Gaz will have the hardest tie by a long shot but, Yeovil have a history of Cup upsets. All the best to Mossy & Gaz & their Gks.
