Wantage manager Tom Broad is a former Letcombe player, as is younger brother Harry. Their father Gerry, who lives in the village, is a former Letcombe president. Wantage captain Luke Stone played for Letcombe for a number of years, whilst Calum Pryce had two years at the club and Frankie Merola played for their under 18 team.
Three more former Letcombe players now at Wantage are Owen Shaw, Jordi Davies and Jared Jones. They are played in the Vale of White Horse Schools FA team which won the English Schools FA under 15 inter association trophy in 2012, beating Newcastle in the final at the KC stadium, Hull.
Their manager on that memorable day was Letcombe secretary Des Williams. It could be quite a reunion on Saturday.
Cup Double Triumph for Oxon Coach Des Williams!In an incredible 48 hours for Oxfordshire CSFA Under 16 and Vale of White Horse SFA Under 15 coach Des Williams saw both of his football sides lift their respective English Schools’ FA National Cups. The man who has been involved within Oxfordshire football since the 1970’s stated: “This is such an incredibly proud moment; all players involved have been a credit to the County, the Association, their Schools and most importantly, themselves. I would also like to thank all of the support staff, the Schools and the parents who helped us all season long and the ESFA for making us welcome and hosting such great finals at both grounds.
