RUCST’s Future Stars Development Squads are looking for games against local teams from U7s – U11s to further enhance the experience of their players.
The Future Stars Development Programme is aimed at providing high quality football coaching for children of all abilities, and contains Development Squads at U7, U9 & U11, for children who show potential to progress to a higher level. To help these players achieve this, games against local teams and private soccer schools/academies prove very useful, and we are hoping to get a schedule of fixtures that takes us through to the end of the school year.
The second quarter final of this seasons G4S trophy took place at half time during the Rotherham United Vs QPR match at the AESSEAL New York Stadium. Maltby Lilly Hall had made it to this stage with a comfortable 2-0 win over Dalton Foljambe whilst St Bedes had a tougher time in the first round where they narrowly beat local rivals Kimberworth Community School by 2 goals to nil.
Once again this made it very difficult to choose a winner before the game, but from the 1st whistle it was clear to see that Lilly Hall wanted to stamp their authority on this match and they had the majority of the early possession and kept the ball up field and in the St Bedes half. St Bedes found it very difficult to get possession of the ball in these early exchanges and on the rare occasion that they did Lilly Hall were quick to close the ball down and deny any clear chances on goal. It was following a rare St Bedes foray into the Lilly Hall half that a long clearance from a Lilly Hall defender led to a sprint race between Lilly Hall’s Cass Walker-Smith and the last St Bedes defender who was outpaced before Walker-Smith calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner to put his side 1-0 up.
Maltby continued to apply pressure following this goal and managed to add a second goal minutes later when Ethan Hickling reacted the quickest to a goal mouth scramble and poked the ball home from close range. The game began to open up following this goal and St Bedes created some good chances to get back in the game but unfortunately couldn’t take these and as they pushed to create chances they left themselves vulnerable at the back and when Lilly Hall broke down the right the ball was pulled back to an unmarked Makenzie Ashton who slotted the ball home to round off a 3-0 win and send Lilly Hall into the semi-finals.
We would like to say well done to both teams for the way they conducted themselves at the match and whilst on the pitch playing.

Jamie Noble, Head of Community Said “I would like to thank Chris for his amazing generosity to supporting our visit to Africa.

RULFC are looking for new players to join them as they gear up for another season in the FA Women’s Premier League Midlands Division 1 2015/16 campaign.
Players must have relevant playing experience to be able to compete at a good level in what will be a very demanding season. Players must also be prepared to show full commitment and be aware that travelling plays a big part, especially when it comes to away games.
Jamie Noble, Head of Community commented: “Rotherham United Ladies FC has made a name for themselves both in the national and regional arena. Currently there are six teams playing under the Rotherham United Ladies umbrella and we are now looking for more players to join us in the upcoming season at all age groups. We have recently held trials for our girls section that we run in partnership with Brinsworth Whitehill and our Development squad and now we are looking for females 18+ to join our ladies team to complement the fantastic squad we already have.”
Simon Walker, Ladies Manager went on to say “last season was quite tough as we had a small but very good squad, however because of injuries and illnesses we sometimes struggled for a full bench. We need half a dozen ladies to come in and compete for a starting place to keep the squad fresh and improve what we already have.”
If you are interested in joining RULFC and want to discuss further then please contact the Manager Simon Walker on 07886404172 or email@example.com .
