On 4th September, Quarry Rovers and Hinksey Park competed in the inaugural Aown Dogar Memorial tournament. The overall winner of three matches would take the trophy. Quarry U12 girls won the first match 5-1. Hinksey Park U13s took the next 3-2. The decider was between the two U16 teams. With the scores level at 1-1 at full time, the match went to penalties which Hinksey Park won 4-3. So the trophy was won by Hinksey Park. Many thanks to Hinksey Park for hosting the event. Quarry will host next year’s event. It was a great afternoon and well supported by both clubs. Aown’s family were very supportive and appreciated the day.

New team: Quarry Under 8

We are one of the newest sides to join the Quarry Rovers family and as we are currently the youngest team at the club we certainly are 'the new kids on the block!'. We had our first training session at the end of March and the team has steadily grown from there. We pride ourselves on having fun above all but also working hard to improve as footballers and as a team. We are all really excited to be joining the Oxford Mail Youth League for the 2016/17 season that commences in September, and putting our skills to the test! Team's page:!under-8/axol7
