The new season got underway for youth football at the weekend in the Wycombe & South Bucks leagues with a mixture of results for Aylesbury Vale Dynamos, writes Iain Willcocks.
The U18’s Floodlit (midweek) team got a fantastic result at Harpenden U18s on Thursday evening, winning 3-2 after being 2-1 down at half time. Princewill Madu put Dynamos ahead and a great brace from full back Joe Hatton, sealed the victory.
U18s Sunday team also won 2-0 at Chalfont St Peter.
The U16s team defeated 10-man Hale Leys 4-1 at Haywood Way, with two goals from Zola Melo and one each for Owen Broughton (pen) and Kai Borrett.

U15s Youth had a feisty encounter at Chalfont St Peter as they suffered a 5-0 defeat.
The U15s Colts also lost their first league encounter, a tight match 3-1 at Aston Clinton Racers. From 2-0 down at half time a better second half performance was small positive to take away.
