NEWS: Warriors battle to runner up spot

04 Jul 2021

On Sunday 4th July, 9 of our U12 Warriors competed in the Burghfield 6 a side Tournament.

After narrowly losing their first two games 1-0 the boys pulled themselves together, drawing the third game and then winning the fourth and drawing the final game. From there, the team continued to grow in confidence winning their semi final.  The final against Aldershot was a tense match. At full time the score was still 0-0, in the first round of penalties both sides missed just one, eventually the Warriors lost in sudden death shoot out.

The lads showed great character and bravery stepping forwards to take the penalties under the pressure of the final, and took the defeat with graciousness and a smile on their faces. There was not a tear in sight!


Lovely sunny July morning

NEWS: Avengers Assemble

03 Jul 2021

The Avengers were excited to be able to compete in their first tournament having been denied the opportunity last summer due to COVID, one of 247 teams due to play over the weekend.

The team arrived early on and tournament officials confirmed their start would be 9:30am and they were due to play 6 teams. The line-up looked strong, and the Avengers were keen to get at least one win in their maiden tournament.

 

The rain held off, and the day went really well. A 2-1 winning start really gave the team confidence, and they followed this up with a 5-0 win, and 4 further 1-0 wins. One of the highlights of the day was the adoption of a new "Mr Whippie" goal celebration, encouraging the team to look for more goals.

 

The team came away with a lot of confidence and great comments from other teams, not only in the way they played, but also in the great team spirit.

 

Thanks to Burghfield FC for hosting a great tournament, the players all came away with amazing looking participation trophies that made all the kids look and feel like winners.
