Under 12 Team News
Under 12s roll to promotion to Division 1
After a tough end to April, the Under 12s flew through May winning 6 straight games to confirm their promotion to Div 1 of the North Wilts league with an amazing record of 19 wins and just 3 losses for the season. They now face a nervous wait to see if their rivals for the title, Wootton Bassett slip up in their final game to send them into a playoff for the title, but whatever the result the team can be immensely proud of what they achieved scoring over 100 goals (and missing at least 100 more) and always playing with a great spirit.
They had a couple of tight games vs Wims at the end and particularly against Stratton Youth where we needed a superb free kick from Ethan with 5 minutes to go to clinch a nervy 3-2 win, but our free scoring team always managed to pull something out of the bag when needed. Their unbreakable team spirit really carried them through with every member of the squad stepping up at various times to secure wins for the team, whether it be brave goal line defending, fingertip saves, precise through balls or stunning long distance shots.
Thanks to all the parents and helpers for being so supportive and we can now look forward to the real test of Division 1 football.

Ramsbury FC U12s recorded an impressive 9-0 away against Lydiard Youth U12 Tigers to keep alive their hopes of securing the Division 2 title. After a tough couple of weeks with several injuries and niggles to key players, last week they bounced back against our bogey team, Swindon Supermarine winning 5-0 with an energetic pressing performance and some clinical 2nd half finishing.
This week we had another injured player return to fitness, and were in control from the first minute against a brave Lydiard Tigers side, who have had a tough season but never stopped trying. On a tricky sloping pitch, measuring the perfect pass wasn’t always easy but we continued to move the ball effectively stretching their defence and creating chances. A big throw from Ollie was cleverly cushion volleyed into the corner by Zach to get us started before Ollie thumped in a second, and followed this up with a clever pass to leave Zach with a comfortable second goal. Rafa and Sam added further goals, before Ollie hit a hot streak at the start of the second half with a very fast hat trick, including a fantastic header ending up with 4 goals himself. Owen scored from close range to complete the scoring.
It is tight at the top of Division 2 with Wooton Bassett U12 Blues and both sides have some tricky games to come to determine who will be crowned champions!
Whatever happens we are very proud of our amazing U12 team who have been brilliant throughout another stop-start season, and look likely to get promoted to Division 1 to really test their mettle next season.
Tough loss away to Purton FC U12s today, but Ramsbury FC U12s remain top of the league and will, I am sure, bounce back stronger than ever. They are a great bunch and have done brilliantly so far.
Keep going the U12s!!!!!!!
Ramsbury FC U12s lost only their second game of the season against a determined Swindon Supermarine U12s side on a very sunny midweek evening.
Although Ramsbury opened the scoring with a very well worked goal, they struggled in the final third to get a vital second goal to put some daylight between them and a very dogged opposition.
Not converting the numerous chances they had cost Ramsbury as Swindon equalised to make it 1-1 after some solid defending and a good counter attack.
All even at half time it was Ramsbury who came out the stronger and went close a number of times. But Swindon dug in and scored a winner to make it 2-1 and grab the points.
A rare loss for Ramsbury U12s, but I am sure they will come back stronger from this minor setback. Well played both teams.
Ramsbury FC U12s win 7-3 against Chippenham Town FC U12 Tigers.
Another amazing win by our very talented U12s team as they score seven in a 10 goal thriller away at Chippenham. The team have 39 points and sit at the top of Division 2 and are looking like a tough team to beat.
The U12s play great football in a positive and fair manner and great to see lots of different goal scorers too. Keep it up and good luck!

Our Under 12 team have been really successful over the past couple of seasons, learning about the game and improving in leaps and bounds, winning 75% of our games last year.
Most of the lovely group of boys have played together since they were Under 6, and this has created a superb team spirit which they rely on during matches to give them an edge. This season they will be playing in a competitive league for the first time in Division 2 of the North Wilts Youth League.
We always welcome new players to our team, so please contact James if your child is interested.
