Sunday 5th May saw the start of tournament season for the U11’s, with a team consisting of 5 Falcons and 5 Warriors heading to Hednesford Town’s ground near Cannock to compete in both U11 and U12 tournaments.
Playing at Keyes Park, a 6000 capacity stadium used by their semi-pro first team (who featured in the FA Cup on the BBC a couple of years ago), the boys got to experience what playing in a “proper” stadium felt like – an experience well worth the early start.
As both our U11 teams train together, they lads quickly gelled and produced some great displays of strong defending, good ball work and quick attacks to beat both Hendesford teams and lift the U11 trophy.
The U12 tournament that followed gave them great experience, playing up a year against more physical, powerful players where the boys competed really well and did themselves proud.
A fabulous day out for the start of what will hopefully be a successful tournament season for the boys!
