Following the half term break, it was a return to action for our Youth sides.

Despite goals from Oliver Grice (2) and Bradley Evans the Under 10 Boys fell to a first defeat since the start of the season at home to Boldmere St Michaels. The Under 12 Boys were also on the wrong end of a defeat against the same opposition.
Our Under 14 Boys found themselves us against a resolute Stafford Rangers side. Despite dominating the game for large spells they were unable to find a breakthrough and were forced to share the points. Meanwhile it was a local derby for our Under 16 Boys against Shifnal Town. Similar to the Under 14s they were forced to share the points, Ethan Relf with the Bucks goal.
The Under 15 Girls battled the elements to pick up a convincing victory over Prees in awful weather conditions. Jess Walley continued her good run of form with a brace as did Courtney Castle. Elle Morrissey and Mia-Jay McCarthy completed the scorers.

Saturday 16th November
Once again the fixture schedule was hit by the weather but we bring you all the action from the 8 teams that did manage to get some game time starting with our Under 18 Boys who were looking to get back to winning ways with a tricky trip to face in form Stafford Rangers. It was Dan Gormley once again who was amongst the goals with a hat trick. Sam O’Brien and Mike O’Toole also netted as they ran out convincing 5-1 winners.
In the local derby between the Under 12 Boys and Allscott, the spoils were shared. Lewis Upton netted for the Bucks but they couldn’t find that elusive winner and were forced to share the points. Meanwhile the Under 10 Boys were edged out by a single goal away at Oldbury United.
Both our Under 10 Girls and Under 13 Girls were in Shropshire Charity Cup action this weekend and both booked places in the semi finals.

Meanwhile the Under 13 Girls were 5-0 winners at home to Oswestry thanks to goals from Lacie Everton-Holden and two for both Eden Wallace and Frances Creen.
The Under 14 Boys had a day to forget losing at home to league leaders Stratford Town Colts, despite another goal for Preston Whinnerah whilst the Under 16 Boys were edged out by the odd goal in 5 at home to Mickleover Sports, Reece Clayton and Alex Holland with the goals for the Bucks.
We end our round up with the Under 11 Boys who to data had recorded 8 wins from 8 games. Up against them and stopping them from making it 9 was old foes Studley Juniors Bees, a side they faced 5 times last season in league and cup as they battled out on all fronts. It was a close fought contest against a side who retained the ball well but an expert counter attacking performance from the young Bucks gave them the win on the day thanks to goals from Jacob Jones, Cole Dexter, Isaac Bateson and Aiden Rowland.
