Another piece of silverware was safely captured today, as the U11 won the 8 a side junior lax tournament held at Brooklands.
Bearing in mind all bar one of these boys played for the U12A last season we had reasonably high hopes for a win and it was a good chance to look at these boys competing against players their own age.
The tournament was a league where we would be playing 6 matches against all the other teams. We started off with 4 straight wins; Mellor (6-0), Rochdale (7-1), HMG (13-0), Brooklands (7-0). We then had a draw against Stockport (2-2) where we dominated the game but couldn't finish our chances. This meant our final game against Poynton was a winner takes all affair - they had lost once and we had our draw, so the winner of the game would win the tournament. The Timperley boys dug in for one final effort and came away with a 3-0 win to clinch the trophy.
All the boys played their part in the win today. Goals from Tom Cox 11, Ed Loveland 8, Joe Hunn 7, Adam Kinghorn 6, Will Callaghan 4 & Sam Hirst 2 did the damage up front, whilst the mean defence of Matthew Stewart, Dan Walker and Harun Wasim only conceded 3 goals all afternoon.
The U12/U11 trophies are mounting up.........
