25 September 2010: Away vs Shipton Bellinger
CK travel to Shipton who have already notched up 27 goals in 2 games!!!!
A reshuffled formation was intended to close the door on a Shipton side who had nothing to prove on the goalscoring front! Exceptional passing and some brilliant finishng from our opponents saw them dominate from the off and our boys went into the break 6-1 down, Captain Connor Mumford giving the CK army something to cheer! Continued effort from CK saw Ben Smith narrow the gap (albeit a big gap!) early in the second half but Shipton were stronger in every department and eventually notched up 6 more to win 12-2, not a good day. At least the weather was good and as always a friendly atmosphere at Shipton softened the blow. Proud to see all 14 boys dig in and try to play the game, several good moves showed what could have been on another day. Bailey Turner continues to improve, Dominic Mussell made some decisive challenges as his confidence grew and Will Brown rolled his sleeves up with some endless running. Well done boys!
25 September 2010: Hampshire Cup............
After a by into the second round, CK await the arrival of Warsash Wasps on the 9th October at Barrow Hill, Goodworth Clatford. This will be our first outing in the Hampshire Cup.........come and cheer the boys on in what will be a difficult fixture.
18 September 2010: Home vs Upper Clatford
Clatford visit Barrow HIll after a big defeat in their opener vs Hythe and Dibden.......
First match nerves?......not sure but a shaky start allowed a very determined Clatford side to take a 2 nil lead early in the game and the visitors held the lead at half time. CK started to pass the ball in the second half and soon levelled through Ben Smith and Jamie Hewlett only for Clatford to capitalise on some dreadful marking and snatch a 3-2 lead. Some slick finishing from Ben Smith, Harrison Pape and Jamie Hewlett after some neat play from Connor Mumford and Bailey Turner secured the result for CK but not before Clatford added a fourth to make it a tense finish! James Abbott in goal looked impressive after summer goalkeeping training despite the goals. 5-4 win in our first league match, good start if not convincing!
04 September 2010: Pre Season Friendlies Vs CK U13s
The boys played some excellent football in 2 pre season friendlies versus 'the big lads' at U13 in late August. The entire squad competed well with some impressive passing and even better tackling. GK James Abbott impressed following his summer goalkeeper training. New boys Ben Smith and Dominic Mussell slotted well into the team. Despite the age gap, our boys gave the U13s two competitive games, working hard to close down and some disciplined marking. Connor Mumford and Jamie Hewlett showed some excellent finishing in front of goal.
Our first league game is on Saturday 18th September vs newly promoted neighbours (derby game?!) Upper Clatford.

24 April 2010: CK U11s Jock McClory Tournament 24th April 2010
!! CK U11s finish Runners Up !!
A great performance all round from all squad members at this years JM tournament held at Charlton Pitches.
A tough opening match against League Champions Fordingbridge saw (as always) a competitive game with CK taking an early lead through captain Connor Mumford. Fordingbridge snatched a late equaliser to deny CK all three points. Next up, Hatch Warren and a poor display from the boys who could not respond to the single goal from the opposition.
Confident victories against Lyndhurst, Whitchurch, Shipton Bellinger and Worthies followed with some outstanding goals from Connor Mumford and Jamie Hewlett. A penalty shoot out vs Hatch Warren decided the group positions, CK winning 7-6 and without a miss!! Confident penalties all round but Will Browns effort was notable.
Semi final opponents Worthys could offer little as CK breezed to a 1 nil victory and into the final vs Fordingbridge.
A well taken early opener from Fordingbridge proved enough and despite some brave attacking and maximum effort CK were unable to get back in the game. Well done to the entire squad, in particular our stand in goalkeepers Connor and Jamie.
