Oaklands Wolves Youth Football Club’s meteoric rise in their inaugural season as a team has culminated in three of their five teams reaching cup finals.
Having gained FA Chartered Standard Club recognition within their first year, Oaklands Wolves Youth FC offer opportunities for girls and boys to access training and matches, under the established banner of Oaklands Wolves and in partnership with Oaklands College.
Three of the five teams currently operating under the Oaklands Wolves Youth flag have reached cup finals this season.
The Under 10 Girls have remained unbeaten all season and made the Herts Girls League Cup Final, whilst the Under 12 and Under 14 Boys sides have reached their individual County Cup Final’s, facing Berkhamstead Raiders Youth U12 Red’s and Cheshunt Youth U14 Ambers respectively.
Oaklands Wolves’ free-scoring sides beat both Stevenage Borough Juniors U12s 4-2 (AET) and Maccabi London Lions U14s 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.
Oaklands Wolves Youth FC Chairman Daniel Coyle 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.”
Coyle added: “What the children have achieved and are capable of is exciting for everyone involved!”
Oaklands Wolves Youth FC Under 14s boys side have since won their County Cup Final and on behalf of everyone at the college we’d like to extend our congratulations to our wonderful Football Academy.
