Another Saturday, another tournament for the U9 Predators. 1st game we beat Soccer Indoors 1-0 with Oscar getting the decisive goal in a game were it took our guys a while to get going. Next up were a very good Linfield side. Our guys went toe to toe with them all game & were extremely unlucky to come away with 2-1 defeat with Zak Hegarty scoring a screamer coming out of defence. Last game in our group was against a Moyola side who had just beaten Linfield in their previous game. Our guys played their best football of the day coming away with a 2-1 victory with goals coming from an og which came from great pressing from our forward line & Oscar notching the other one. 2 wins from 3 in a tough group stage was a great effort from our boys.
Next up was a semi final in the shield against Hillsborough Boys. Unfortunately despite a lot of effort our boys just came up short narrowly losing 1-0 to end our day. With every tournament these guys play they’re gaining fantastic experience which will greatly aid their progression. Onto the next one.
Squad; Zac Stokes, Will Russell, Zak Hegarty, Fionn Wilson, Daniel Savage, Michael Askew, Oscar Philson, Noah Budde, Theo Armstrong & Cameron Fitzsimmons.
