On the morning of Saturday 29th January, amidst (mostly…) glorious sunshine, the U’10 A footballers descended upon Merchant Taylors’ Prep School for a 5-a-side tournament.
After two closely fought group games, a 2 – 2 draw with Belmont and a narrow 2 – 1 defeat to the eventual winners The Beacon, our team were drawn against Gayhurst in the Plate Semi-Final. Thanks to a nicely taken goal they secured a 1 – 0 victory and progresses to the final, where they were to meet Haberdasher’s Askes School.
An end to end affair, filled with much goalmouth action, ended 2 – 2 after extra time, meaning that sudden-death penalties were required to settle the result. After Davenies scored, the opposition’s first taker missed, meaning that the team managed to secure their first piece of silverware for the season – an excellent team effort and a huge thank you also to all of the parents who supported throughout the morning!
