Our club is fortunate to have a large and active Youth Section. One of our lads, Cayden, plays for Casuals Under 13's and also represents The Fulham FC Foundation. Cayden is a very skillful and hard-working young footballer and the skill aspect was shown last week when he scored a screamer for Fulham against Arsenal Soccer Schools. CLICK HERE to watch it, you won't be disappointed!
Editors note: It was a lovely goal but scoring against Arsenal is something not to be encouraged.......
Corinthian-Casuals Youth section coaches, Martin Woodroffe and Adam Wicks, recognised by the Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames for their contribution to the Borough's football entry into the London Youth Games.
For the past 5 years, Corinthian-Casuals Youth section have provided the coaching for the Kingston 5-a-side teams and for the second year running, both the boys and girls teams improved their positions in the London Borough league. Throughout May and June this year, Martin coached the girls team and Adam the boys, as they prepared to enter the London Youth Games at Crystal Palace in July. Both coaches volunteer their their time to coach these young players and five of the girls in Martin's team, showed so much promise, that Martin arranged for a trial with Fulham Development and all five were accepted!
Both coaches are highly experienced and have been with the Youth section for many years. Martin is President of the Youth Section and manager/coach of the u14 Youth team, and Adam is the School Liaison Officer for the Youth Section, coach of the u18 Elite team and assistant coach for the CCFC Reserves.

Casuals were defeated 3-0 away to Egham last night in the Surrey County Cup.
James Bracken used the match to make a number of changes and whilst the score line shows a comfortable evening for the hosts Casuals dominated for long periods during the second half but to coin an old phrase
“We wouldn’t have scored even if we stayed out there all evening” would best sum up the match for us.
All the best to our hosts Egham whose captain Brendan Matthews hit a hat-trick to seal a place in the 3rd round draw.
