After the close of the season,and Sutton U9's coming 2nd in the league, it was time for the summer tournaments, if you can call this summer.
The first tournament of the season was at Burley, which saw the U9's up against Burley A, Menston A, Bingley B, Ilkley C andSalts B in the round stages.
Results in the rounds were :-
Burley A 1 v 3 Sutton
Sutton 1 v 1 Ilkley C
Sutton 2 v 1 Salts B
Sutton 3 v 0 Bingley B
Sutton 0 v 0 Menston
This left Sutton in second place in the league table on goal difference behind Menston.
Result in the Quarter final : -
Sutton 4 v 0 Horsforth
Result in the semi final : -
Sutton 0 v 0 Ilkley A - after full time
Sutton 0 v 0 Ilkley A - after extra time
Credit to both teams in this semi final, as neither team could breakdown either side's defence.
Result after penalties : -
Sutton 4 v 2 Ilkley.
A good display of penalties from Sutton, all five penalties taken were on target, and only one was saved.
Ilkley also managed all five of their penalties on target, but the difference was Jack (Felix) Whitaker who saved three of them, two at full stretch.
Result Final : -
Sutton 1 v 0 Guiseley Yellows (after extra time)
This was now final time and as luck would have it, it was Guiseley Yellows who we would by up against, the Keybury Yellow League winners to whom Sutton came runners up to this season.
Revenge was the order of the day, and from the whistle blowing the game started with both teams passing the ball around with little up front action. This continued into the second half where Guiseley started the strongest and poured lots of preasure onto the Sutton goal. Corner after corner came in on the Sutton goal, but each time the ball was cleared with everyone back in defence for Sutton. This brought on extra time, again Guiseley pushed forward, but it was Sutton who got away and started to put pressure on the Guiseley goal, and as the first half of extra time was coming to an end a header from Will Smith nestled into the Guiseley goal, this was met with a loud cheer from the travelling Sutton fans, again Guiseley pushed forward looking for a way back, but to no avail. and as the final whistle blow the boy's had done it!
Oh to be a manager / supporter!
What a day and the U9's deserve all the credit for winning their first tournament, well done boys. Thank you for a great start to the tournament season.
Team : - Jack Whitaker, Nathan Coventry, Owen Capstick, Scott Jurvicious, George Elrick, Will Smith, Joshua Aldham, Jamie Burgess.
Thank you to all the team for the best day of tournament season so far. We are really proud of you.
Mark & Ced.
End of season game, saw the U9 team take on the whole of Silsden U9's.
With Owen Capstick missing and the departure of Will Smith, Sutton with only 7 players took on 12 players from Silsden, as with the rest of the season this didn't make any difference, and soon the Yellows where 1 nil up through Joshua Aldham's nice finish.This was followed up with two further goals from Nathan Coventry, which made the final score 3 v 0.
With a good all round performance from Keeper Jack Whitaker, Defenders Jamie Burgess and Scott Jurvicius keeping the Silsden attack at bay leaving them with no shot on goal all game.
Centre midfield Nathan Coventry and the two wingers James Eyles (left) and George Elrick (right) also had the better of the midfield battles to supply front man Joshua Aldham who had an excellent game and voted man of the match for his work rate.
The season finished on a high with the U9's finishing their first competative season in the Keybury league Yellow division runners up just 8 points behind the winners Guiseley Yellows (well done Guiseley).
From me (Ced) and Mark and the rest of the coaching staff well done boy's excellent season and bring on the tournaments so we can continue the good football played.
