Our U7 Lions won their first ever trophy building on their recent semi-final and finals defeats this season!

The boys were knocked out of the Redbridge United tournament in the semi finals a few weeks prior so it was clear to see they really wanted to improve as they started their first game with high energy. We started the tournament on the front foot and kept it going all the way to deservedly qualifying for the final.

The final was against a very good team who had previously beaten us in a final earlier on in the season. Some of the boys were friends with each other so it was nice to meet each other again in a final and see the players getting along with each other. The final was tough and finished 0-0 meaning penalties were needed to decide it. In the shoot out the score was tied at 4-4 but when our opponents had a penalty saved we had the chance to win it…… and with the final kick of the game it was 5-4 to our Lions and the celebrations began!

So proud of our youngest league team and the great support from the coach & parents this season!!
