U11 Blues demonstrate Respect!
At the Chiltern Youth Football League Annual General Meeting, LUFC U11 Blues were awarded the Respect Sporting Trophy for the U11 age group.
The award is presented to teams who play in CYFL consistently demonstrating the core values of the FA's Respect initiatives continuously adhering to all the recommended standards and expectations of fair play in grass roots youth football.
The award is decided throughout the year by the attitudes and behaviours of players, coaches and teams as points are accumulated by reviews and ratings given after each match attended. The reviews are gained from team coaches, officials etc. and reflect their overall impression of the team, how they played football and how they interacted with other players.
Joe Le-Vien, U11 Blues coach said "we are very proud to be recognised by our peers for this award as we always aim to do things the right way on and off the pitch adhering to the LUFC philosophy of developing the players to be good citizens as well as footballers. I am personally overjoyed for the team as this recognises how well they have conducted themselves this season. As a team we are really proud of this achievement.”
U11 Blues scored an overall rating of 9.47 (out of 10) and ranked the highest in the U11 age group among all teams that play in CYFL. U11 Reds and Greens also scored highly with 9.33 and 9.05 respectively so LUFC was well represented in the U11 age group.
