It’s a safe environment where everyone is valued, respected and encouraged. We’re proud of our FA Charter Standard Club Award. And we’re committed to the FA’s Respect Initiative. Since 1971, we’ve worked with local businesses, schools and parents to build a club we can be proud of. See the Club Rules & Club Handbook. All our volunteers, managers, coaches and referees are CRB checked. We’re a trusted part of the local community. So whether you want to volunteer or are looking for a team that’s right for your child, you’ll find Cougars has a lot to offer.

In 2011, Cougars celebrated their 40 Year Anniversary, and in 2012 a Cougars team won the Hertfordshire County Cup Final, a first for the Club. And the following year, they did it again and won the 2013 County Cup Final. Well done from everyone at the Club.

Cougars U10s Blues vs Ware Youth, Saturday 8th December, Away

Deane, Ivison, Flanagan, Tanner, Tallis, Wick, Scott, Hennessy, Awoyemi

Lovely day for a game (if a little breezy for the parents). As for the game itself? Well, sometimes you get those unusual games.... and this was one of them. Four own goals!! Yes, an astonishing four. The Blues just did not have the luck today.

In the first half the Blues were quickly into the game, Wick firing in a goal, Yeboah style, in off the crossbar from the edge of the box (although with the benefit of super slowmo it might just have had a small helping hand from the Ware keeper and when I say small helping hand, I mean a massive helping glove). Then Flanagan forcing a save from the keeper with the outside of his right and Scott intercepting and firing one inches wide. There was a lovely move down the right with Hennessy playing in Wick who cut inside and fed Ivison but the keeper pulled off a blinder. At the back, Tanner and Hennessy were excellent, playing lovely interlinking passes before driving forward. Wick was enjoying playing further advanced and had some wonderful touches.

Into the second half and it was chances galore for the Blues. Deane with a run from halfway, past two but his strike hit the inside of the post - Unlucky. Then Flanagan from 25.... Inside of the post and away.... Then Deane fired over, Wick drew a save and Deane unlucky on the follow up. Hennessy working it from the right, across the area and drawing a save with his left. Ivison outside of his right - a pearl of a shot but saved again. Ivison on his right, beautifully tipped over. Scott.... Saved. Hennessy.... Saved. Deane with a header (!!!!) from a corner, Ivison then putting it wide. Awoyemi was a driving force down the channels, often beating his man and looking to get the ball in the box. Scott had an excellent game and he was the drive through the midfield alongside Flanagan.

Tallis in goal was excellent and frequently in the game with interceptions in the first half - good reading of the match. In the second half he pulled off some blinders too and may have had the misfortune to be up against a very prolific back line.

So to sum up, it was a little like the Cougars parents at the social last weekend: Flanagan definitely turned up to the party, Hennessy on his best behaviour with no need to apologise after the way he played. Tallis with some stories to tell after his antics. Tanner and Wick with better moves than their Dads, Ivison able to enjoy his walk home after a good display and Deane with the runs (down the wing) all morning long.

Well played both teams.

Cougars U10s Whites vs Pro Academy U10 Greys away on a windy 4G pitch at Lea Valley Academy

Benton, Deeks, De Monte, Willis, Brown, Dawson, Collery, Cole.

A really good game played against a very physical Pro Academy team.

A great first half by Cougars saw them create a number of chances. Some intricate passing by Deeks, Collery and DeMonte and great crosses set up a number of chances for Willis and Brown to score but it just wasn’t their day.

A competitive second half saw goals from Brown and Collery for a really good performance from all the players. Some good defending by De Monte, Cole and Dawson saw chances for Pro Academy kept to a minimum. A superb one handed save in the first half by Benton in goal was one of the saves of the season.

The passing today was really good and the movement off the ball is improving week on week.

Man of the match today was De Monte for some excellent tackling and passing including a defence splitting pass reminiscent of Beckham in his hay day.

Well done all and have a great weekend.
