In September 2021, Buntingford Cougars held it’s 50th Anniversary! The club put on a celebratory event on Sunday 5th September with a fundraising Sponsored Walk for our members followed by an afternoon of entertainment at The Bury.
 
We asked members to design a commemorative badge that would be proudly represented on our 2021/22 season kits for all age groups.
 
The winner of our competition was U12s player 𝘾𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙡𝙞𝙚 𝙂𝙧𝙞𝙢𝙖-𝙎𝙩𝙖𝙘𝙚𝙮 with a truly fantastic design. It pulls in the existing badge, features a gold 50 and ribbon detail, but also perfectly captures the spirit of the club itself. “50 years of being part of a team” is a great tagline for this wonderful grassroots, community club. All our age groups are now proudly sporting their new kits in their matches.
 
The celebration event itself was a true success held in beautiful sunshine with lots of past and present Cougars players and supporters turning out. Also, the club were able to raise a huge sum of money for the Lynsey Ivison Trust.

Here’s a clip of James J’s superb free kick which was enough to win the final of the @BuntCougars 5-a-side tournament on Sunday ⚽️🥅

And what a belter it was! Left foot like a traction engine! 🏆

The U10 Vikings finished runners up in Buntingford U11s Tournament shield trophy at the weekend. A great day out and experience for the team to compete at older age groups, including a nervy penalty shootout and a standout performance in the quarter finals. #grassrootsfootball
