Cubs – 3rd place in 5-A-Side

18 March 2013

On Saturday 16th March 2013 we entered 3 teams of 6 players into the district 5-a-side football competition which was held at Power-league Soccer Dome in North Shields. Our teams were just 3 of the 20 entered from across the district.

The competition started at 2pm and our 1st team’s first game was a great kick off for us, we drew 0 -0 which gave us our 1st point…….

We played game after game scoring goals and making more points than we ever had before!

Our teams did very well and after a fierce competition one of our teams made it through to the knock out rounds playing against some very experienced and tough teams who have all won the competition before, so we already knew it was going to be a tough challenge.

After a long hard game we lost and found ourselves playing for 3rd/4th place against the 5th Whitley Bay. Our players started the game well, scoring the first goal which built them up to win, they were knocked down when the other team scored but this didn’t stop them! They went on to win the game 4-2 and gained 3rd place overall.

Our A Team Came, 8th

Our B Team Came, 9th

and our C Team Came, 3rd

Very well done to all of our players, parent(s) and spectators for their support and encouragement during the competition.

Next year……… who knows!
