altU8 & U10 BLITZ:
On last Saturday we held our annual U8 and U10 blitz. This was the 17th year we have held this tournament. Over 450 children took part with 12 clubs playing in both age groups. In the U8 age group there was 30 games played with each team having 5 games. It was played in a total non-competitive format with every child getting plenty of playing time.
The U10 teams were split into 2 groups with 6 teams in each group. Each team had 5 games in the group stage. It was great to see all the Clubs giving plenty of playing time to all their squads. Our own team came out on top in their group with Churchill winning their group. It a good competitive final, Churchill proved a bit too strong and were eventual winners. Churchill have taken part every year since the tournament started and this is the first year that they have won it outright. A huge congratulations to the Churchill players and mentors.
The club would like to thank all those who helped make this another great success. To Humphrey and his team who looked after the traffic management, for those who got the pitches ready, the volunteers in the shop who kept us all well fed and to the referees who gave up their time to help us and in particular those who came from the other clubs. It was great to see all the skills of the game on show by the youngsters which shows the future of football is looking good.
