Sunday 26th May 2019 our Under 9 Blue team took home a trophy to add to our trophy cabinet.
This tournament was played at the home of a premier league side - Crystal Palace, which was hosted by 'Play on the Pitch'. This is a one in a life time opportunity and the boys were very excited and overwhelmed by the occasion. We would like to thank the organisation for their hospitality and ensuring that the boys enjoyed themselves on the day
Our U9 side were unbeaten in the duration of the tournament which was difficult to manage as the level of ability from the oppositions were at a level which is respectable. It was a great time for our boys to show why they deserved to win the final of the Saturday London Youth cup which we were unfortunate to lose in the dying minutes of the game the day before.
The final of the competition was described by the Under 9 coach - as "A very proud moment, my players should be proud of themselves with the performance that they showed on this fantastic pitch". Due to both sides pushing for success in the final this meant that it had to be decided by penalties, which thankfully saw us take the cup home with clinical finishing from our team and great saves from JP.
We would like to thank the parents/guardians who came to show their support to their children and the club, the players for representing the club in a professional manner and Sandro for his hard work in the duration of the tournament. Well done Bedhead F.C. Under 9s, onto the next season we go.
