What fantastic performances by both our Highfield Cub teams in the Southampton City Football Tournament!
Our A team played some scintillating football with goals aplenty – Finn scored 11 in the tournament and Alfie 4 in the game where he played up front. But some of the movement and passing was just exhilarating to watch, all backed by a calm, assured defence. Well done to Alfie, Angus, Rory, Rogan, Josh, Charlie and Finn!
Our B team, playing against some of the toughest teams in the competition more than held their own, notching up a win – great goal by Leo! – and three draws. The players noticeably grew in confidence as the tournament progressed, always keeping a good team shape, looking to pass to team-mates and determinedly supporting each other in defence. Well done Matt, Alasdair, Sebastian, Thomas, Jai and Leo!
Our B team finished third in their league and our A team was narrowly beaten by the mighty 2nd in the semi-finals – but all the Highfield Supporters were thrilled by the spirit, effort and skill of all our Highfield Cubs – they were just great!
Much credit has to go to the team coaches, Pete for the A’s and Anders, assisted by Liz, for the B’s. They, together with Guy, ran a great training session last Sunday, organised the teams brilliantly and encouraged and built-up the boys fantastically well! Thank you very much to them 🙂
Finally, I’d like to say thank you to the Mums, Dads, Brothers, Sisters and friends who came to support the teams this morning – you generated a fantastic atmosphere, gave the boys massive encouragement and lost your voices in a great cause, thank you and “Come on you Reds!”
