A bright, warm and sunny day greeted the FourClubs team and supporters, and despite
the early start everyone was looking forward to the event.
There were a total of 5 teams in the U12 event, Bournemouth, The Cherries, Andover,
Feltham and ourselves.
Game 1 vs Andover. Both teams played well but neither were unable to find the net
so it ended in a 0 - 0 draw.
Game 2 vs The Cherries. The FourClubs players excelled themselves in this match
and with goals from Aaron and Josh, ran out comfortable winners
Game 3 vs Feltham Bees. Feltham were a good team and whilst FourClubs worked hard
, at the final whistle they came second !
Game 4 vs AFC Bournemouth. In the last group stage game FourClubs played another
competent side and much as with the Feltham match - we came second again.
Game 5 vs The Cherries (4th &d 5th Place Play off). In a tense game FourClubs got
straight on with the job and played well. In an inspired managerial switch, Aaron
went in goal

(injury) and Reece went on pitch and promptly scored the winning goal which was enough
to us through to the 3rd and 4th place play off.
Game 6 vs Andover (3rd & 4th Place Play off). After only a short break from the
previous game FourClubs could have been forgiven for being a bit tired. But the
team rose to the occasion and played really well. Aaron was in goal again and kept
a clean sheet, leaving super-sub Reece to score his second of the day and gave FourClubs
a creditable 3rd place overall in the event.
Well done to one and all - a good day and a good result !
