GBYFC U11 Black win Hamble tournament

Tournament day! Gosport Borough u11 Black entered into the Hamble tournament plate knockouts. Two leagues of 5 teams were entered with the top four from each league qualifying for the ¼ finals. Each game was only 15 minutes long.

Game 1: v Hamble Hurricanes—— A nice victory, easing any tournament nerves as we were three players short of our maximum. 

Game 2:  v Hedge End Tigers—— A very hard draw v an extremely tough u10 team.

Game 3: v Hedge End United Cobras —— Another very tough game in which we were happy to come away with a draw. 

Game 4: v Gosport Borough u11 Green  —— We had qualified at this point, but were totally outplayed by a very resilient and strong team, definitely deserving of this victory. 

So, we qualified for the ¼ finals in 4th position. Our fate- a game v top of the other group (Totton & Eling) with 4 wins from 4 league games. 

Full- time: victory for the Borough u11 Black team 

Onto the semi finals: v Hamble Spitfires, who had very narrowly defeated our Borough Greens.

This is when we really started to work together as a team with an extremely comfortable victory, leading us to the plate final. 

FINAL: v Hedge End United Cobras,  who had played 6 games and only conceded the 1 goal, which we scored against them in our league match. 

This was a very hard match, producing some fantastic football from both sides. Borough taking the lead and then desperately defending like Trojans to hold on for a memorable victory. 

A fantastic day was had by all.

If you work hard, listen well and enjoy what you do… anything is possible.
