for 2003 - 2004 Season
(Covers from 1st September 2003 to 31st August 2004)

At long last the electrics in the clubhouse have been fixed. The
fault was caused by a break in the wiring of the lighting circuit.
Thanks are due to Jeff Brydon of Downley Dynamos for arranging
for the detection and repair by his friend Kevin. This now means
that all our 4 changing rooms and the referees' room are available
for use. We still need to sort out the damage to the outlet pipes
of the sinks and toilets that was caused by vandalism.
Welcome to 2 new players
Des Ife 15 November 2003 16:51 GMT
We are pleased to welcome 2 new players to our Youth side. They
are Rhydian Grange and Matthew Ramsden. They will be able to start
playing for us on 23rd November and we wish them every success.
There are also 2 ex-Marlow players who wish to join us and they
are in the process of being signed up. More details will follow
Hithercroft Youth Fold!
Des Ife 16 December 2003 23:53 GMT
It is with sad regret that I have to report that Hithercroft Youth
team has now disbanded and will take no further part in the South
Bucks Youth League. We have been beset by many problems this season
with lack of commitment by the majority of the players who have
failed to turn up for games and training. Some have left the club,
others have been released for bad behaviour on the field or for
consistently failing to turn up, and the majority have refused to
pay their subs despite numerous warnings. This has left us with
no alternative but to bring the team to a close. We apologise to
those newcomers who have just joined us (Daniel Birch, Rhydian Grange
and Matthew Ramsden) and to Richard Vere and Kevin Ife who have
paid their subs in full and always exhibited loyalty to the team.
We hope that they will either find alternative clubs to play for
or will rejoin next season's Youth team (which is this season's
Under 16s). We wish to thank the South Bucks Youth League Committee
for their support over this current season and apologise to them
and the other Division 4 clubs that we have played against for the
inconvenience that this will have caused. We wish them luck for
the remainder of the season.

Totteridge win Youth League Divn 3 title
Des Ife 6 March 2004 23:45 GMT
We congratulate Totteridge on their achievement. We are particularly
pleased in that their squad included some ex-Hithercroft players
(ie Jason Guy, Riccardo Falconi, Shane Globe, Matt Seaton and Laurence
New coach for next season's Youth team
Des Ife 13 April 2004 15:00 GMT
A new coach has been appointed to assist in the training of next
season's Youth team. Brian Lewis has coaching experience for both
Youth and Men's teams and should be a great asset to the club.
