Westfield Youth U18: My Site News: Current Youth team history & honours

Current Youth team history & honours
Westfield’s current Youth policy started in 1999 when Woking Boys u13’s joined the club to form a new Westfield Under 14 team. Under Manager Vic Locke they have reached 5 County Cup finals in last seven years and as Westfield went on an unbeaten run on all fronts of nearly three years which included winning the treble (Surrey County Cup, West Surrey Youth League Cup and West Surrey Youth Premier title) two years on the trot. Twelve of the players were selected for the Woking Schools District squad that beat Croydon Schools in the District Cup Final, five for the Surrey County FA Side and one to the England Schoolboys side.   
Last season they again reached the Surrey County Cup final narrowly losing on pens after extra time and came runners up in the West Surrey Youth Under 16 Prem League. Eight players represented the Surrey County FA sides and a large majority of the side played 2 years above themselves in the Midweek floodlit Under 18 Southern Youth League side, having a great season finishing runners up to in a league of youth teams from much bigger clubs. Several of the players were also lucky enough to be given opportunities to play in the clubs senior sides and acquitted themselves well. This year 12 players from the Youth team have represented the club at Senior level with a good proportion doing so on a regular basis. The Southern Youth League team who with the exception of two players all have at least another year are currently third in the league and a new u15 side has been set up to continue the flow of players. The new side has a lot to live up to but looks very promising and is acquitting its self very nicely, currently unbeaten and sitting top of its league.
