Highlights from the weekend
We lost the majority of the games this week to the poor weather, but the rest of the highlights are below.
Saturday Section (MJPL):
Our U12s AT side coached by Andy Talliss, faced Littleover Dazzlers for the second week on the trot - this time in the MJPL Cup 1st Round. After moving the tie to John Henry Newman School on the 4G astro, the end result was a draw once again, 1:1 this time (last week 4:4), but this time the tie was decided on penalties. This saw our U12s through to the next round with a 3:2 shootout victory, seeing them in the hat for round 2. A brilliant season for our U12s so far, seeing them sitting in the top half of the league standings in 7th spot.
Saturday Section (CWGFL):
All our games this week were postponed in the girls section.
Sunday Section (CWYFL):
We had two of our U8s teams in action this week in competitive fixtures as the Spring Cup started up. U8s JS coached by Jon Sims drew their first game against Alvechurch 3:3, but then came through the 2nd fixture with a 2:0 win against Halfway Juniors, to see them through to the Finals Gala Day.
Our U8s PD side coached by Paul Dumbleton drew their first game against Coton Green Minor 2:2, but then lost out to SJB Juniors 1:3, narrowly seeing them squeezed out of their Gala day.
There were only two other fixtures that took place on Sunday. Our U12s MK side, who are having a fantastic season, lost out in a game full of goals against Continental Star 3:5. They still found themselves sitting in 2nd position in what has been an outstanding season for them this year.
Our U15s MR team travelled over to bottom placed Arden Forest United this week, but found a spirited Arden side fighting for their lives at the foot of the table to come out with a 2:2 draw.
