GFA Enfield under 9’s win the Pro Soccer Cup 2017!
A mixture of players from our three Under 9 teams featured in the Pro Soccer Cup 2017 a first of its kind event in the UK in collaboration with NIKE.
With so many teams and so many pitches this tournament was a big one and even included a Jumbo-Tron TV showing live action from the games and action replays so as you can imagine the players were super excited.
Our Under 9’s got off to a wobbly start and just about managed to qualify out of their group. However in the knock out stages they stepped up their game which was a great effort considering our team was a mix of players from all our Under 9 teams. They cruised into the into the semi-finals where they overcame a side who had beaten them in the group stages early on but not on this occasion as our Under 9’s deservedly won 2-0 to make it into the final.
The final was a close game and not surprisingly it went down to penalties. Both teams in the final scored some wonderful penalties and also missed a few adding tension to shoot out. It went down to sudden death and eventually on penalty number 9 our goalie made the save that won the day!
Great job Under 9’s and what a nice feeling to go into the summer holiday break!
