Technical Director's Message:

Hello Everyone,

With summer behind us and a brand new school term only weeks old, we take this opportunity to congratulate our Orangemen who have been successful in securing spaces at infant, primary, secondary and tertiary level institutions. We must “Big Up” those student athletes who were successful at the 2017 Common Entrance Exams and those who have left our shores to further their education overseas. We noted your unwavering commitment throughout the years to continue playing football, even when popular voices suggested time out to study. Yes my Orangemen, you have proven that education and sports go hand in glove.

This season our focus will be primarily on competition, as we prepare to participate in the Castries Football Council’s Youth Football League.  As in previous tournaments, an academy team will be selected in each of the 5 age division to represent Valley Soccer. News reaching us suggests that the first round of games will be held over the last weekend in September. This leaves us very little time to tweak things and get into competition mode, so expect extra sessions during the week days.

For the Orange Kindergarteners and Under 9 training will continue as usual on Saturdays from 9am to 11am.

At the national level the Castries Football Council is presently participating in the Northern Zone District Under 22 Male Competition. To date the team’s performance has been good, and we anticipate qualification to the quarter final stage. As its contribution Valley Soccer has 7 players on the Central Castries team. We wish the team well in the knock out round, and ask that Valley Soccer Stakeholders make a concerted effort to support the team once the schedule for the Knock Out Round is published.

Also on the cards for this month is the exciting Blackheart Knock Out Competition. More on this once the draw to decide on match-ups is done.

Based on the plans presented, the next 3 months promises to be a very exciting period for our members. So buckle up, as we forge ahead building character one goal at a time.

Yours in sport,

Coach Parry

Northern United U14 Visits CCSS

Castries Comprehensive Secondary School, Vide Boutielle – September 24, 2016: Fresh on the heels of being crowned champions of the VSADC CAPRISUN Youth Football Festival Valley Soccer Academy entertained visiting Northern United in a one-off friendly in preparation for the upcoming ECFH-LUCELEC Youth Football Tournament.

Results Of Games Played On May 23, 2015

Here are the results of the games played on Saturday May 23, 2015

At 12 noon at La Clery Playing Field in a Under 17 clash Valley Soccer Academy defeated La Clery All Stars 4 goals to 3. At the half the home field favorites led 3 goals to Nil, but on the resumption 3 unanswered goals gave the Orangemen a well-deserved win. This game is the first in a series of friendlies in preparation for the CFC Summer Youth Football tournament.

Dawn of a New Age?

This past Sunday 12th April Valley Soccer Club (VSC) fielded what is probably the youngest ever lineup in the Castries Football Council (CFC) Club League. Our ‘Orangemen’ had a squad with an average age of 18.38 years!

On the other hand, our opponents Lancer FC fielded a lineup which was full with experienced players. This led to one spectator comically referring to the Lancers starting XI as a team of ‘coaching staff.’

The end result clearly showed the gap in experience between our Orangemen and their opponents as Lancers emerged as 4-1 winners.

Avian Girard: 2014 DKS in Jamaica

Being chosen to go to Jamaica as one of the three boys for the Digicel Kickstart Clinic was the first time I would be travelling for football, and it was a very big occasion for me. As soon as I landed in Kingston the bus took us to Sabina Park where we would be training and playing our matches for the week. When we arrived we were placed into our teams.

Result Of Games For Weekend Of September 13, 2014

ECFH~LUCELEC Youth Football League U12 Division @ Corinth Playing Field:

Valley Soccer Academy 0 vs Super J Boboville SC 3         

The second hat trick on Saturday by Simeon George gave Super J Boboville SC a 3 goals to nil win over Valley Soccer Academy. The opponent Super J Boboville SC was extremely physical, at times bordering on manhandling the younger and small Orangeboys. Going forward this will require review and some adjustment as the Under 12 tries to gain a place in the playoffs.

Thank You From Boboville SC

Dear Coach Parry             

We the members of the Boboville Sports Club would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to you for giving us the opportunity to play against your team on Saturday June 14th, 2014 at the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School Playing Field.

It was truly a learning experience and one that we were grateful to be a part of it. We would also thank you and the team captains for the tokens which were presented to us at the end of the match.
