U13s Vikings

Fleet Town Vikings are in their fourth year of playing together. In 2013 they were champions of the North East Hampshire Youth League Division 3 losing only one match all season and scoring 98 goals and conceding only 22 in their 21 league games. They subsequently won a summer tournament that year and were runners up in another. After gaining promotion they achieved a top half league finish in 2014 coupled with another tournament win. In 2015 the Vikings were champions of North East Hants youth league Division 2. The Vikings are a team who thrive on supporting each other as a team, playing a passing game and getting forward in numbers from a strong defence. This family squad is always actively supported from the touchlines by the respectful parents and siblings. The Vikings are managed by Craig Matthews.

  • Hook United Youth 5 Fleet Town Vikings 2

    Posted on February 8, 2016
    Due to the weather this was the first time Vikings had seen any match action for two months. On a boggy pitch in the swirling winds Hook seized he early initiative and led with a lobbed goal after four minutes. Vikings with the wind behind them responded strongly and were level when Fareed Hakeem-Habeeb struck home with a low shot from the edge of the penalty area. Vikings came close several times with long range efforts from Fareed and Mason Clark, before two individual goals in quick succession meant Hook ended the first half with a two goal advantage. Aaron Matthews reduced the arrears from the penalty spot midway through the second half and despite coming close several times, Vikings were hit with a sucker punch with the final kick of the game when a wind assisted corner flew straight Into their net to complete the mornings scoring.
  • Fleet Town Vikings 0 Curley Park Rangers Hawks 0

    The Vikings will be mystified how they managed only a draw in a pulsating encounter at Oakley Park that they dominated for large periods of the game. The Hawks keeper pulled off a stunning save to deny Nadir Berrachedi his first ever Vikings goal when the defender sent a firm header goalwards midway through the first half, and was responsible for several other fine saves to keep the rampant Vikings at bay. Jack Barney finally managed to beat the inspired Hawks number 1 after the break but was unlucky to see his long distance shot cannon back off the crossbar. Max Bremner and Mason Clark also went close for the Vikings before the referee called a halt to proceedings at the end of a blood and thunder match.
  • Fleet Spurs Boca Juniors 3 Fleet Town Vikings 2

    Posted on November 29, 2015
    In a hard fought and close battle on a heavy pitch, Spurs came out on top with the odd goal in 5. The home side took the advantage early on with a close range strike but Vikings were level when a Sean Tilson cross found its way via a deflection into the Boca net. The second half was an even affair with both sides having several half chances before two goals in quick succession gave Boca the lead. A lovely long distance lob from Fareed Hakeem-Habeeb gave the Vikings hope and created a frantic last five minutes as Vikings pushed for the equaliser, but in the end time just ran out for them.
