U13 Hampshire Cup 3rd Place Play-off
By Phil Keeling
Tadley U13s beat New Milton in a thrilling game to take 3rd in the Cup!
It was one hell of a game that's for sure!
New Milton are a big club with lots of players to choose from so I think they expected to come and roll us over, we were warned beforehand that they were very aggressive and so it proved with 3 players needing to be subbed in the first half due to late or dangerous tackles! I was pleased the ref managed to take control of it.
Massive credit to the boys, would you believe that was ALL the players we had available for the match yesterday! We had a lot of injuries, concussions and players missing so what a great performance by those that were available.. played with such heart and no lack of skill!
Congratulations to all the U13 Tigers for an incredible performance in this year's Hants Cup. We started as an unseeded team back at the start of the season but with wins over Andover, Basingstoke, Havant and now New Milton we have definitely announced our place amongst Hampshire's elite!
