Pride Park Juniors face Borrowash Victoria in the Derby City League u16 Challenge Cup Final, this Saturday at Belper Town's Christchurch Meadow Stadium. Kick off is at 13.00 and all support will be welcome!
Our newly formed Under 11 Girls played their first ever game today, and secured a win in their opening Derbyshire Girls and Ladies League fixture, beating Hilton 2-1.
Laura opened the scoring with a rasping shot from well outside the area. Hilton equalised and the score remained level for a long period after that, but the winning goal from Emma secured the points and a first win for the girls. Well done!
A Charity Football Match between between fathers and families of Pride Park Juniors' players and John Flamsteed Community School's teachers and friends held in July raised £3,000 for Ward E38 at Nottingham Queens Medical Centre.
The charity was chosen after Pride Park's under 17 Girls' goalkeeper, Victoria Wilsoncroft, was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphom and was looked after by staff at the children's E38 oncology ward at QMC. Vicky has now recovered and returned in between the posts for her team in November.
Kids football is changing - smaller pitches - smaller teams - smaller goals - child friendly competition
