James lucky shorts work again

James Howards lucky shorts help Aylesbury U14's win big against Pitstone & Ivinghoe

James Howard, with nothing better to do on a cold and windy Saturday morning In May, once again assembled a team of keen young footballers, dressed them in green (and orange) and sent them out to score as many goals as they could. For the final time, James Howard donned his lucky shorts, braved the cold and arranged his girls on a smaller pitch then they are usually used to for a nine-a-side league encounter with Pitstone and Ivinghoe.

Assisted by coach Brandon Howard and ex-player Paige Howard, James quickly got the girls to press hard on the pitch and they spent most of the first half in the oppositions half. Four first half goals from Iona LAWSON, Sophie HENLEY and two for Katie O'KEEFFE was proof that James Howards lucky shorts were working their magic. It was a match where the half time talk by James Howard would be the easiest of his six years in charge of this team, probably only made tricky by goalkeeper Madeline Smith badgering to be let loose in the second half.

So an early goal by Sophie HENLEY for her second gave James Howard the opportunity to release his secret weapon from goalkeeping duties and send "the great wall of China" up front. Madeline Smith duly re-payed James Howards faith by scoring a goal to make the score 6-0. Not for the first time has James Howards dependable shot stopper kept a clean sheet and scored goals in the same game. Katie NORMAN rounded the game off and scored the seventh goal for James Howards magnificent green team, Aylesbury United Girls U14's.

Player of the match went to Kiera COSSEY.

This was James Howards last game in charge and what a game to finish off on. The way these girls have played this season has been a credit to James, they began the season having lost two strong players from the previous season and gained four girls fresh to the game but who under James guidance have gained in confidence and ability. This game was all about the kind of team spirit that has been present all season and in particular in difficult games (like against Mortenville) where it was evident in spades, so really this game was should be dedicated to James Howard who has fostered this kind of team attitude and should be rightly proud of his team.

Thank you James Howard.
