All you need to know:
Addiscombe Little League Football play on Saturday mornings between the months of September and April. The whole league meets at 09:30am to start training exercises before moving onto organised matches. Parents who are unable to stay to support their children should check with team managers or league coaches as to expected finish time.
One of the biggest advantages of Little League is that all matches and all ages will always play at the same venue with no travelling beyond the normal venue required. Addiscombe play at Ashburton Playing Fields which can be located on the map opposite.
On this site we provide information about team fixtures for the following week as well as the latest match results and current league positions, all updated weekly.
END OF A SEASON!! 2012/2013
As we reach the end of the 2012 – 2013 season we reflect upon the final season with Addiscombe Little League for the Chairman, John MILLS. John was there at the start of Addiscombe Little League in the early 80s and has remained a constant fixture throughout. His ethos of football for all, at a very cheap - almost free - price is a rare thing and such a lengthy dedication to a community activity is uncommon today. John has seen many changes during his time at the league. The original ALLF was organised for senior school children who weren’t getting into their school teams and therefore weren’t able to feature in competitive football matches. Over the years ALLF has opened it’s doors to younger and younger age groups and it now provides a place to play football and learn skills for school years 1 through to 8. When John takes a walk across Ashburton Playing Fields on Saturday mornings and sees over 100 youngsters taking part in a team sport he will rightly allow himself a smile and trot off to Sainsbury’s knowing that he has played a huge part in promoting fun and an active lifestyle for hundreds of children.
From us all, past and present at Addiscombe Little League, it’s a massive thanks to you John and a job well done.
16 boys and one girl from the main league entered the group stage of the National Little League Tournament Last Saturday 20th April. We played 3 games, winning 1 and losing two which meant we didn’t progress to the semi finals to be held this weekend.
The format for the day was to play 3 half hour matches with the winner of the group going through. The first match saw us paired with the eventual group winners, Raynes Park. They were a very strong side with a midfield player in their ranks who is established in one of the Chelsea academy sides. To only lose 4 0 to Raynes Park was a credit to the boys (and girl) and I feel had we had played them later in the group stage we may have faired better. The second game was tighter and we could have gone ahead but for some poor finishing. Carshalton scored in the last minute with a very good backward header to win the game 1-0 but the children took a lot from this game and were rightful winners in their final group game against Wallington. The celebrations when we scored our first goal in 6 national tournament matches lifted the non existent roof. Next year could be our year! Thanks to all the Mums and Dads who attended and who continue to support Addiscombe Little League.
