U15 Youth: Berks & Bucks Youth Cup final

#WeAreAscot.

Congratulations to our U15’s Youth squad who have successfully navigated their way to the Berks & Bucks U15 Youth Cup final for the 2022/23 season.

Some emphatic wins from the team have seen them book their place in the final and we caught up with their coach, Bjorn Dunkley, to discuss the journey and how the squad are feeling.

How have you found the cup campaign this season?

Having won the U14’s B&B Cup last year this year has been a much tougher journey and the boys have beaten some of the best teams in the cup all the way through. The win at home against Aylesbury Dynamos, a team we beat in the final last year on pens after a 0-0 draw, was probably best performance of the season.

A highlight of the competition so far?

One of the highlights has to be the 8-0 win vs Aylesbury at home, but a great semi final win away against MK Warriors 2-0 traveling 55 miles each way made the journey much more enjoyable.

How are you and the squad feeling ahead of the final?

The squad are feeling good ahead of the final and every time we play Bracknell they are close tight encounters so I expect nothing less. Both teams well organised with talented players on show. Cup finals are all on the day and I hope the boys that enjoyed the final last season can use those experiences to their benefit this season.
