Former Arsenal, West Ham and England midfielder Jack Wilshere stops for picture with Thorley Manor youth football team
Thorley Manor under-10s got to rub shoulders with former England international midfielder Jack Wilshere.
The ex-Arsenal and West Ham playmaker, who was most recently at AFC Bournemouth, stopped for a chat after the boys in orange had played a tough match away to Letchworth Garden City Eagles.
The 29-year-old, who won 34 caps for his country, had been watching his son play for Stotfold on the adjacent pitch. He was interested in how the Thorley team had got on and even posed for a photo with the squad.
Aaron Stevens hit a hat-trick when the under-14s registered a 3-1 win over Bassingbourn while the depleted under-13s produced their best performance of the season to beat Bedwell Rangers 4-2 despite only having 10 players.
Under-12 Black impressed with their passing, movement and decision making – as well as scoring the best goal of the game – when they met Morden Magpies Black.
There were goals for William Joyner and Oliver Bryant in the under-12s' match against Hitchin Town, who kindly agreed to match their eight players. Cameron earned special praise for limping back on to help the team after getting injured.
Another solid display from under-11 Black against Smart FC shows they are continuing to improve while Joshua, Ronnie and Reggie all netted in under-nine Black's determined effort against Shefford Saints Blue.
And Louis was amongst the goals as under-nine Orange pressed strongly and defended well away to Baldock Town.
All of the Thorley Manor teams in action at the weekend observed a two-minute silence for Remembrance.
