THERE was a reduced number of matches in the Thames Valley Football Development League on Sunday due to the school holidays, writes Rob Stevens.

In the Under 12s (U12s) Division Two, FC Cippenham Bears bounced back from a defeat the previous weekend to record a convincing 6-1 win at Frontline.

In the U8s section, FC Explorers Purple and Burnham Juniors Cubs Yellow competed in an entertaining match with both keepers impressing with their shot-stopping skills.

In the U12s League Cup, Langley Hornets and Langley FC Youth finished 2-2. The match went straight to penalty kicks and Langley Youth won 2-1.

Burnham Juniors Jaguars White and FC Explorers were drawing 1-1 at the end of their cup tie, before Burnham won the shoot-out 3-2.

The other two League Cup matches were more one-sided affairs as Townmead Youth beat RedKore Reds 5-2 and S4K Wolves defeated Chalfont Saints Pythons 4-0.
