U9 Reds win Half-term Futsal Tournament

With pitches all over the County out of action due to the weather, what better time to take part in the half-term tournament @futsal? Robins U9 Reds played in their first futsal tournament in December and did really well, narrowly missing out in the final. This weekend they went one better and won the tournament with a thrilling 1-0 win in the final, after a tight game against a strong Bishops Cannings Fireblades side in which both teams played some excellent football.

The tournament consisted of 5 group games, in which U9 Reds finished top of the group, having won every game. They then won their semi-final 5-1, before going on to win the final 1-0. All told, they played 7 games, winning all of them, scoring 22 goals along the way, with only 3 conceded, an all the more impresive achievemnt considering they were missing their two first choice keepers and top scorer! It was a terrific afternoon, with some superb football played by all the teams there, and all the players had the chance to learn new skills and show off some existing ones.
