Introducing the Reserve Team

The Reserve team was formed for the 2005/06 season and was managed by Barry Laurence and Steve King. The team lost a play-off for the North Herts League Division One in its inaugural season, but they beat Fairlands 3-0 in the final of the Division One Cup.

Since then, the Reserves have always been relatively successful, with Barry Laurence guiding the team to the Herts Senior County League Reserve Cup in 2007/08. They were also runners-up in Reserve Division Two.

After promotion to Reserve Division One, the team finished runners-up two seasons running under the management of Antonio Cierzo and then Sean Ennis, Kev Smith and Lee Rusbridge before finally lifting the title in 2010/11 under the current management team of Lee Rusbridge and Mark Ephgrave.

The 2011/12 season saw the Reserves make it back-to-back league titles after coming from seven points behind at the turn of the year to lift the trophy.

Another terrific run saw them come up just short in 2012/13 finishing runners-up to Sarratt Reserves despite a 16-match unbeaten run to the end of the season in the league.

After two solid mid-table finishes in the Spartan South Midlands League Reserve Section, the Reserves finished bottom in 2015/16 season.

For the 2016/17 campaign, our new development team will play in the Herts Senior County League under Simon Efford.
