2nd Week of Cup Competition for the U8's

Posted by admin on October 16, 2014

The same format as last week with 3 teams all playing each other. First up were the Spartans against a strong Middlewood rovers. A challenging game for the lads (and lasses) with much of the game spent brushing up on our defending skills and goalkeeping.

A break for the Spartans then followed as the other teams went head to head in an entertaining and hard fort match.

Finally the final match where we saw the Spartans up against a well organised Redmires Rangers. An impressive outfit with their own folding bench! See the face book pictures!!

The challenge was there from the start with our attacking kept to a minimum but their pressure on goal continuous, however with yet another solid display at defending and some fantastic goalkeeping, the damage was kept to a minimum.

Then after the games, the teams got together to celebrate a great hard fought morning of football with the presentation of a cup to Redmires for being the eventual winners of the contest but with all the players getting a medal for their efforts.

I could see some proud faces out there from the players to the mums and dads alike.

It’s great to see some honest football played, some fantastic support from all three sides and the good spirit in which the games were played!

Next up for the U8’s this Sunday is the return home fixture against Langold

 So onwards and upwards, see you there!!
