Our U8 Tigers finished off a fantastic weekend for the club with a true underdog story!

The Potters Bar tournament had a whole host of quality teams and was definitely a hard tournament to play in. The Tigers have had a mixed season as at times they look brilliant and other times you can’t recognise them. However the boys got off to a great start playing some wonderful football finishing top of the group and qualifying for the quarter finals.

The quarter final was a physical game and the Tigers had to dig deep to edge it 1-0.

The semi-final was simply outstanding as the Tigers came up against arguably the best team in the tournament. We were 2-0 down with 6 minutes to go before the Tigers turned the game on its head with a combination of high pressing and quick attacking play the boys went 3-2 up! Probably the loudest sets of parents you’ve ever heard as both sets of supporters sang the boys on, yes they were singing!!

The final was deja-vu as the Tigers came up against yet another strong team and once again we were losing this time 1-0 down with 5 minutes to go. Once again our Tigers refused to give up and put the opposition on the back foot putting 3 goals past them to eventually win the final 3-1!

Simply fantastic from the Tigers and truly deserved!!
