One of the loveliest things about the U16s is we have four players who joined the club when they were six years old…
So we have a hardcore of players who are very loyal to the club and some very new players who joined the club because it’s so open minded and friendly.
They’re really doing very well even though they are one year younger than most of the other teams in this two year group. We were runners up in the ELE League and for the third year in a row we were runners up in the ELE League Cup. We’ve lost the cup by the odd goal every time so here’s to next season. I must confess that one part of me doesn’t want to win a trophy because our Chairman says if we do, I will have to don a sheepskin coat and smoke a cigar!
Our coach is Donald Brown, who works alongside our Head Coach Danny Brade at Hackney Community College as a Sports Teacher and Football Coach.
He trains the team at 11am on Saturdays and at 5.30pm on Wednesdays in Millfields Park. Our players come from all over eastern London from as far a field as Enfield and Kent! It costs just £3 for drop in training.”

“Thank you so much, it is a pleasure to be involved with this young group of players and to have the 100% support of Hilary and the parents. We hope that we can give everyone associated with Clissold Rangers, a lift on cup final day… …one day ;-)”
