Oaklands Wolves’ free-scoring sides beat both Stevenage Borough Juniors U12’s 4-2 (AET) and Maccabi London Lions U14’s 5-2 in the Semi-Finals. Both sides will be looking to add some silverware to the trophy cabinet of their fast-growing Youth Academy.
Ryebridge Director Daniel Coyle is Chairman of Oaklands Wolves Youth FC and said: “We are very proud that we have reached three finals in our first season. The emphasis is on development and enjoyment so finals are a bonus. We now have chartered status and we train twice a week with UEFA B Licensed coaches.
“Being part of the Oaklands Wolves and working closely with the College gives the youth the opportunity to plan for EJA and once the 3G facilities are complete, competing in the floodlight league. What the children have achieved and are capable of is exciting for everyone involved.”
