Team Info

Goring Robins U11 Hurricanes play in the Berkshire Youth Development League. We are already in our fourth season of league football and have two teams, one in each of the top two divisions of the BYDL. We have gone from strength to strength as a team since U7's we continue to field to equally balanced teams at the most competitive level we can. We had another fantastic season last year capped off by both sides reaching the final of the Crowmarsh Youth Plate tournament.

Our games are played on a Saturday morning and we also train on a Wednesday and Friday evenings and are always interested in playing extra friendly fixtures (especially 9v9).
