Present the
U18 B Team
The U18 B Team so far………
Following 2008’s season the lads left school and started
college and work. The original team split with players
leaving to pastures new. Some of the original players,
Ryan and Sam had received awards for their long standing
service and commitment. Two seasons ago Luke Vincent,
Matt Taylor and Jared Sims joined the team.
This years new players joining include Tom Lambert,
Josh Mann, Mike Wright, Cullen Chitty, Will Cooper

The season so far…….
Rayleigh B have been denied the league for the last
2 seasons. The beginning of the season saw us lose
many original players. We were playing matches
with only 9 men until the end of November.
However, with only 9 players Rayleigh have lost
some games . However we did beat FC Dedman 4-2
with 9 men and likewise drew with Canvey Island
3-3. We now have 11 players (no subs) but this side
shows 100% commitment. They never give up and
with such determination and drive, Rayleigh should
get some results this season. Come on Rayleigh!
First Game of the season
Shore Athletic 4 Rayleigh 3
This was an unfortunate loss,
however the boys did battle with 10
men. A crucial penalty made it
difficult to catch up and time ran out.
We hope to do better with a full
squad at our home game.
Second game of the season
Wickford Town 5 Rayleigh 3
This was an unfortunate loss with the
9 men. We hope to do better with a
full squad away later on this season.
Cup Game 3rd game of the season
FC Dedman 2 Rayleigh 4
This was a breath taking game. With 30
minutes of the second half left Rayleigh lost
their player captain and was down to 9 men.
The boys held on to finish the game 2-2.
They played an additional 30 minutes extra
time and held the game. They won on
penalties 4-2. A well deserved score which
shows what the lads are made of. Sheer
determination and team spirit!
4th Game of the season
Ashingdon Youth 9 Rayleigh 0
The results did not really show the efforts
during this game. 9 men against 11 proved
difficult against Ashingdon, who score most of
their goals as headers from corners. We look
forward to meeting Ashingdon with 11 men on
29th November in a cup game. Look out for this
result as it should prove a different game.
5th Game of the season
Canvey Island 3 Rayleigh 3
This was another win for us. The game was a draw,
through battling tooth a nail. The equalising goal was
scored in the dying minute by Tom Lambert. 9 men
against 11 again. Everyone was run ragged, but they
thoroughly deserved the result. We look forward
playing Canvey with 11 men and taking away a result
next time!
6th Game of the season
Catholic United 8 Rayleigh 1
This was a tough game and Catholic played
well. Again with 9 men it was going to be
another hard game and the players were
suffering from fatigue and an uphill struggle.
We take the result gracefully and look forward
playing Catholic with 11 men and a result next
7th Game of the season
Cup Match
Ashingdon Athletic Rayleigh
This was a reunion to test our confidence and
self belief. This time we had 11 men (no subs)
but were positive about getting a result this
time. And we did 1-1, however the referee
called stop to the game due to adverse
weather. A rematch is being drawn up.
