Under 14 Team News
Ramsbury FC U15s Coach Andy Knowles accompanied by two of the U15 squad collected a cheque from Waitrose Marlborough Community Matters.
This is a great community project and the money form Waitrose Marlborough will be used to buy sports rollers as part of the Club’s Sports Therapy drive in partnership with Frankie Naylor Sports Therapy to improve fitness and injury prevention in youth teams and young players.
Ramsbury Football Club Chair and U15s Coach
Today Frankie Naylor of Frankie Naylor Sports Therapy took the Ramsbury U15s Squad for a session on warming up and warming down pre and post training. It was hugely useful and informative and the U15 squad and coaches learned loads….and the players were clearly more flexible than the coaches!
Frankie’s son plays in the U6 squad and as such she is free between 0930-1030 for short sessions to ensure coaches and players alike understand and apply the right type of warm ups and warm downs, how to stretch properly and also the benefits of using rollers.
A huge thank you to Frankie and if any other team needs her help then please contact me.

We are really grateful to Frankie for volunteering her time and expertise and she is a brilliant addition to Ramsbury Football Club.
This U14 Division 2 clash kicked off under a brilliant sunny sky which mirrored the confident disposition of the U14 team fresh from their away win at Chippenham last week. This week’s visitors, AFC Newbury Whites were also going to be formidable opponents and Ramsbury knew that they would have to start strongly.
The first goal (pictured) went to Ramsbury and helped steady the ship and let the team settle into their well drilled passing routines. Ramsbury became more and more assured on the ball as the first half progressed and another goal soon followed the first one to make it 2-0.
Newbury did have their chances and the Ramsbury defence had to be on their guard throughout to ensure that the score stayed in Ramsbury’s favour. However, apart from a late consolation goal towards the end of the second half the result never seemed to be in doubt for a strong Ramsbury U14s side who are enjoying playing with a flowing style that, if it continues, other teams will find hard to break down. The game ended 4-1 to Ramsbury and they look forward to the visit of Bradford Town in the cup next week.
Ramsbury FC U14s squad under coaches Mark Savory and Oliver Bond repaired the 3/4 pitch today with over a tonne of soil to make sure it was much more even and playable and to prevent any unnecessary injuries.
The team showed great teamwork and endeavour in completing the task and are thanked for making sure the pitch that they and the U11s play on is in the best condition it can be.
Well done to all players; coaches and all the parents who stayed behind after training to help. Fingers crossed for another win tomorrow!
