Balham’s sixth season in the SYL was another incredibly successful one. The squad, most of whom have come through the club’s age group system, played some excellent football to win the West Division and finish as overall SYL Runners Up. A successful side inevitably has many players in it who were consistently very good and that was very much the case with Balham. There were plenty of worthy candidates for Youth Team Players Player of the Year however inspirational captain, Jack Haire, who was exceptional throughout the season and also played regularly for the First team, was the deserving winner. A number of other players also featured for the Balham First team in the SEIFL. Many thanks go to all those involved in running the team, to the coaches, the match organisers and supporters and also to the Balham FC Youth team sponsors, 8ighty 2twenty, who provided very generous help and support.
