What a great day the Under 8s had last Sunday. All the teams had fun and started to show some of the skills we have been practising every Friday.
The children are starting to understand how playing as a team works to our advantage. All the children have shown a lot of promise but mostly important they have had lots of fun in what it was an enjoyable tournament for all.
Well done to the Jaguars who were undefeated and won the Tournament. Of 5 games played they won 4, drew 1 and played the final against another Guidlford team! We saw some fantastic passing and communication between the children. We tried to stay in our positions defending the goal area well.
The all girls Leopards did well too! Won 1, lost 2, and drew 1 but never stopped running and never stopped shouting. Real team spirit helping each other out. They played a few teams with older, more experienced boys in them but never gave up. It is clear they are listening to the Friday nights sessions and trying to apply to the matches.
The other all girls Lions were arguably the loudest team with great spirit and determination. Some really good defending from Isobel and Alexandra K, and brave performances from Olivia and Emilia following hand and leg injuries! Suzanna scored a great solo goal whilst Amelie worked tirelessly in midfield. Well done girls, great fun!
The Tigers won all their matches apart from the final against Jaguars which was a very close affair. They all played well and thoroughly enjoyed it and played as a team and passed the ball into space. Lots of fun was had by the team and by everyone involved.
