The Club is proud to announce that two of its senior teams have made it through to their respective League Cup Finals this season.
Please come and show your support for our players who have worked incredibly hard to get this far. Both teams have had strong League seasons as well as their respective Cup competition successes to date. Watching these matches will be an invaluable experience for all our players, regardless of which age group they play in!
WRFC U15 Piranhas (SYL) – Surrey Youth League U15 Invitation Cup
Managed and coached by Paul Sarney and Andy Barry, the Piranhas saw Cup Final action at the end of last season but were narrowly defeated by Yateley. They said they’d be back – and the team has lived up to its promise! The SYL Piranhas are currently top of the Surrey Youth League U15 ‘Super’ Division, with 36 points and three games to play – and will continue to fight for the top spot with Motspur Park and AFC Ewell. We wish them well with their continued League campaign and the lure of promotion to the SYL U16 Championship Division next season.
The road to Cup Final glory looks easy on paper for Piranhas but the reality is that the team has competed against 39 other teams across five rounds of the competition to get this far….
R2: Twickenham Sharks 1-9 WRFC U15 Piranhas (4th October 2015)
R3: WRFC U15 Piranhas 12-0 Met Police Youth Reds (15th November 2015)
R4: Meadow Sports 2-4 WRFC U15 Piranhas (13th December 2015)
R5: WRFC U15 Piranhas 4-0 Worcester Park Colts (31st January 2016)
R6: WRFC U15 Piranhas vs Wallington Wanderers (24th April 2016).
Our U15s take on Wallington Wanderers in the Cup Final, with their opponents currently top of SYL Division 1, one rung below Piranhas. The match will be played on the 3G pitch at Carshalton Athletic FC’s ground on Sunday 24th April 2016, kick-of at 12.00 midday.

WRFC U17 Hurricanes – Surrey Primary U17 League Cup
Adrian ‘Binny’ Binfield, supported by Coach Rob Horton, continue to lead the Hurricanes to League and Cup success. Effectively this season’s winners of the SPL U17 Premier Division with three games to spare, Hurricanes remain unbeaten in the League so far this season and will be strong contenders for SPL Premier Elite football next season. As if that were not enough, the Hurricanes have taken the League Cup competition in their stride admirably as well:
R2: St Frances Sport 0-11 WRFC U17 Hurricanes (15th November 2015)
QF: WRFC Hurricanes 2-1 Claygate Royals Griffins (7th February 2016)
SF: WRFC Hurricanes 3-1 Abbey Rangers Youth (20th March 2016)
Final: Fleet Town Colts Youth vs WRFC U17 Hurricanes (8th May 2016).
Fleet Town Colts Youth are currently lying 2nd in the SPL U17 Premier Elite Division and are realistically challenging for the top spot by season end.
The Hurricanes step up to their Cup Final challenge on Sunday May 8th 2016, kick-off at 2pm, at Godalming Town FC’s ground at Wey Court, Godalming, Surrey, GU7 3JE.
Good luck to both teams!
