Proud to be supporting Christopher’s Smile

This year, we are pleased to be supporting local charity, Christopher’s Smile. Christopher’s Smile was set up in October 2008 after the founder’s son Christopher was lost to an aggressive medulloblastoma brain tumour.  New treatments are urgently needed for the 20% of children who do not survive this type of disease along with those children who survive but face a lifetime of post treatment issues.  The charity has raised over 1 million pounds for research projects that will benefit the children across the childhood cancer community. The charity pays no wages and making use of volunteers, they control their costs. When expenditure is unavoidable it is covered by either specific grants or paid for by the Trustees.  Every penny of a donation is used for the cause for which it was given. Look out for representatives of Christopher’s Smile as you...

CPR U11 Hawks win the NEHYL Div 5 Cup

            The CPR U11 Hawks, led by Mike Jeffreys and Russ Gill,  have lifted the NEHYL Division 5 cup this morning in Alton in a hard fought battle against Hook Utd Lions. With a goal coming from a corner just five minutes into the game the remaining 85 minutes was a nail biting time for the spectators. The teams were well matched and Curley had several chances on goal with one hitting the post.  Hook battled on and had a few chances but the Hawk’s goalkeeper demonstrated that he is safe pair of hands, coming out several times as a sweeper keeper to meet Hook one-on-one. In the final fifteen minutes, Hook threw everything they’d got at trying to get that equaliser but Hawks defended valiantly and secured their 1-0 victory. A wonderful team effort, well done...

Curley Park Rangers U14 Youth win the Hampshire County Cup

Congratulations to the Curley Park Rangers U14 Youth team who became Hampshire County Cup champions on Saturday after triumphing in a tense penalty shootout.   In a closely fought final against Laverstock & Ford FC, Curley had a chance to wrap up the match in the final minute however, with a shot narrowly missing the target, the game went on to the dreaded penalties.  Having lost the previous year’s County Cup final on penalties Curley were determined to go one better this year and never looked back after the goalkeeper’s fantastic early penalty save.  This was followed by clinical finishing from all four Curley penalty takers until the fifth and final penalty was calmly put away to ensure Curley Park lifted that trophy for the very first time. Team Manager, Lee Davison-Poltock commented,  “Not many players get the chance to experience a County Cup Final and I’m delighted for the boys to finally get their hands on the trophy at the fourth time of asking.  As a coach it is a privilege to manage such a wonderful group of boys, many of whom have been with the club from 6 years old.  Their hard work and dedication has finally paid off and I couldn’t be prouder.” VERY WELL DONE BOYS FROM EVERYONE AT...
