Surrey Premier League – Chelsea Festival
On Saturday the 2nd September the Surry Premier League held a festival at Chelsea’s plush training complex at Cobham. The festival was for U7’s and U8’s with Guildford City Dynamos lucky enough to get one of the 4 spots available for the U8’s.
Having enjoyed a light training session at Stoughton recreation ground in the morning to blow off the cob webs from the summer break, the boys headed up to Cobham in the afternoon for three 20 minute matches against Elm Gove Zebra’s, GPR Vikings and Rushmore Community Devils.
Looking to continue with their success in the summer tournaments, the boys played some excellent football in extreme heat. Not helped by having no substitutes, and a multi ball system of play the Chelsea coaches wanted to play to keep to play flowing, the boys gave it their all, as always!
Three excellent wins (6-1, 1-0 and 3-0) giving us confidence and enthusiasm for the start of the season on the 17th.
Well done Dynamos, and thank you SPL for the invite.

Freiburg Exchange Matches
Over the last 30 or so years Guildford city have been involved with a football exchange programme with our twinning town Freiburg in Germany. Unfortunately, due to funding and a few other complications they could not continue this tradition, however they did continue to stayed in touch with each other. Being a few years since their last meeting, Guildford city arranged for the under 15s and under 18s youth teams to come to their grounds for a couple of matches. This was a special event that was also visited by the Guildford Mayor and Mayoress. On the 22nd of September, Freiburg arrived by coach shorty after midday.After a welcome reception, the under 15s took to the pitch. Manager Tim Boxall prepared his team, the jets, for a fun and entertaining game. In the first half of the match Guildford City were winning 1-0. After half time Guildford city returned in strong play and scored another 2 goals. However, Freiburg were not giving up there and scored an amazing 30 yard strike, making the final score 3-1. Both teams played some excellent football and represented their towns proudly.
Following swiftly after, the youth teams prepared themselves for their match ahead. Managers Darren Oldaker and Nick Ayling gathered their team and headed for the pitch. In the first half of the match, both teams played really well but it was Guildford city who scored the first goal and took the lead. After the half time interval Guildford City Youth started very much like the U15 Jets and got a second goal with a third followed soon after. Freiburg’s keeper managed to deny Guildford City scoring any more goals with some fantastic saves.
The final score was an amazing 3-0 to Guildford city. There was a good turnout of faces, old and new throughout the day. And overall Freiburg’s visit was a great success. Both Guildford City and Freiburg will stay in touch and hopefully arrange another visit of some sort and get the opportunity to play another brilliant game of football
