Tournament Weekend

5 months ago By Stefan Rance

Over the weekend of 13th & 14th May the Youth Section held their first tournament at Beveree Stadium, and what a great success it was....

Over the weekend over 700 players from 33 clubs took part in a tournament at Beveree Stadium withe teams from Under 7's to Under 10's participating in front of over 1200 people.

On Saturday morning 18 Under 7 sides kicked things off and there was some great action to be taken in with skills a plenty and loads of encouragement from the sidelines. There were medals for every player and smiles alround.

Saturday afternoon saw the Under 9 tournament with 20 teams signed up. Following the group stages we entered a knock out tournament which was eventually won by Lyne Topcats, who defeated Claygate Royal Hares in a penalty shoot out after a really tight game which was contested well by both sides.

Sunday saw even more teams with 22 Under 8 teams taking centre stage in the morning with fantastic weather. Again every player received a medal for taking part and there were many great comments received.

The tournament closed with the Under 10 tournament and it ended up in an all Hampton final as the Colts took on the Bucks. In the end the Bucks edged it in extra time after a very close game in which both sides could have won it.

Feedback from teams who entered has been really positive and this will become a regular fixture on the calendar over the coming years.

We would like to thank everyone who gave their time to help make this such a huge success, without your help it just wouldn't happen.

Where next?
