Under 9 Warriors Runners-up at the Hall Green Gala, 6 July 2014
The Under 9s took three team’s to the Hall Green gala this morning.
In one overall competition, the Phantoms and Harriers just missed out on qualifying for the knockout stages, despite giving 100% as always and playing some flashes of quality football. Highlights included Charlie’s van Persie-esque diving header; Alexander’s fine first time left foot strike; Rowan’s defending; Jacks shot stopping and Baileys van Basten volley!
However, Town’s hopes rested on the Warriors, who after topping their group, faced a tough task against Crofton A in the semi-final. The boys produced a fabulous performance, drawing 1-1 in normal time and 2-2 after extra time, running out winners on penalties after the first sudden death round.
In the final they faced a very strong Hall Green A team who ran out deserved tournament winners, however, the Warriors had made us all incredibly proud after playing some excellent passing football throughout the morning! Fantastic! Well done to all of our boys!
Bring on next Saturday and our own fabulous gala!
