With all three under 10s teams on show, albeit a little mixed up, Saturday’s season curtain raiser was a brilliant affair and one that will last in the memory for a long time.
Looking splendid in their new kit, the boys were a delight off the pitch and a pleasure to watch on the pitch. When you factor into this the brilliant atmosphere amongst the parents, it really was a great day even before considering the results and performances on it.
All three teams excelled at some stage in the morning.
Lamar’s team bounced back from some challenging games to claim a moral boosting draw against Sutton Coldfield u9s.
Kai’s team were an extra time goal away from reaching the final.
While my team bounced back from their loss to South Birmingham in the group stage to reverse the result in the final and lift the title in dramatic fashion.
With Jason rainbow flicking the ball over his rival’s head, all of the boys played with a smile on their faces and a skip in their step. It really did set us up for an exciting season!
Well done lads! The first of many we hope!
Up The Ton!
