Under 13’s Win 5-a-side Tournament!

The Sarisbury Sparks annual 5-a-side tournament took place on Saturday 5th July which saw a number of teams from Locks Heath Lions enter. A great performance from the Under 13’s (now U14’s) saw them crowned winners in a tense final match. For a mini report, Keir Donaldson has provided some more information.

Keir Donaldson Coach of the U13’s ¬†Writes:¬†
Great morning with the Red team going through to the semi-finals having lost only one game and would you believe it, it was to the other Locks Heath team. The Blue team just failed to qualify finishing joint 5th. Shame really as they only lost two matches, but had too many draws.

Tense semi-final which went to penalties with Tom Ridge in goal saving the opponents first two efforts, leaving Joel to just convert our second penalty to take them through to the final. Very close tense 12 minute final, which also went to penalties. Both teams scored first one each, before our opponents put the second wide, for us to convert the second and third to win the match. Congratulations to the team and especialy the penalty takers, Lewis, Joel and Aaron.

Really exciting and well played to all the lads.

It is worth noting that previously the U13s made the semi finals of the Warsash Wasps, Hedge End and Bishops Waltham tournaments and quarter finals of the Crofton Saints event.
