Sunday 24th August saw Sutton U8s Rascals and Rogues travel to Leeds to take part in the Farsley Celtic tournament for the 2nd year running. With the weather surprisingly good for a British Bank Holiday weekend the boys all took part in some very competitive and entertaining games of football.
A Rascals team made up of Dan C, Jamie L, Alfie S, Roman D and Nathan J were unbeaten on the day, winning 2 and drawing 3 of their 5 games including a fiercely contested 3-3 draw with Farsley Celtic 'A' Team. Player of the tournament went to Jamie L for a dynamic midfield display capped by 2 fine goals, one of which was a magnificent freekick after he had drawn the foul on the edge of the area. Skill award went to Dan C for some superb hold up play and incisive passing. Well played lads!
The Rogues, made up of Franklin G, Joel L, Jack W-H, Aidan H, Charlie B and Hayden W put in a series of fine displays that weren't reflected in the results, as they ended the day with 1 win from 5 games. The lads could easily have come away with more wins but just didn't get the rub of the green. They kept on fighting and came away from the tournament with a smile on their faces. Aidan H won player of the tournament - what a fantastic achievement on not only his debut for the club but the first time he had ever played competitive football! Charlie B won the skill award for an absolutely amazing performance in the last game against Bradford Warriors - Charlie refused to be bullied by some strong arm tactics from the opposition and continued to play his football. Well done Charlie!
All in all a well run tournament and a fun day for all!
Thank you to all the parents and players for your support.

As part of our commitment to gaining Community Charter Standard we are once again looking to run a girls football team.
We propose to run an U7 or U8 section to start with and so we need players as soon as possible... contact details are below.
We train in Sutton Park on a Saturday morning at 10:30 am but we can look at a more suitable day and time once we have some players signed up so don't let that put you off!!
Come along and give it a go.
