With three teams involved in the BPSFA under 11s 7-a-side Championship and two involved in an under 10s festival, we have 48 boys representing Erdington and Saltley on Saturday. That is without doubt a record for The Ton, if not Birmingham Primary Schools’ FA per se!

With autumn sun beating down on Vale Stadium and a brisk chill in the air, it was perfect conditions for our first competitive action of the season. During the morning we played some phenomenal football and could have lifted the title on another day. As it was, South pipped us to the crown after winning all of their games and beating us 1-0 in a tight but entertaining encounter. While we were disappointed not to win the 7-a-side title for the third consecutive year, we had to doff our cap to our rivals from the south of the city!

Across a total of 15 games, we won the majority of games, scoring plenty of goals and conceding only a handful. The B team won 2, drew 1 and lost 1 to finish fourth overall. The C team won 2, drew 2 and lost 1 to finished third. The A team won 4 and lost 1 to finish as runners-up.

The positives were there for all to see. To have three sides in the top four illustrates the depth that we have in our squad this season and justifies our decision to enter two teams into the BPSFA district league in 2020/21. It is going to be an exciting season and one we can’t wait to kick-on in!

Well done boys!

Up The Ton!
