Northerner's Away Day to Welwyn

To celebrate the end of the season, it was only appropriate to take a small band of brothers to Welwyn for their annual tournament.  With the exception of Portsmouth, it was a true Northerner's day out.  With Stockport, Rochdale, Sheffield, Norbury and Mellor making up the 6 team tournament in the Under 12s.  First up for Stockport, were Rochdale, and a nice comfortable win 6-0 with goals from Cameron (4), Rhys and Hugo.  As is often the case with this format of 6-a-side the games came thick and fast and we were straight into an encounter with Mellor who went away victors at 3-6, with goals from Cameron, Rhys and Hugo.  Next up were Sheffield, and a 6-3 Victory, with goals from Rhys (3), Ashley, William and Cameron.  After Sheffield, a game against our only Southern based team Portsmouth and an 8-3 victory, with goals from William (3), Cameron (2), Luke (2) and Hugo.  Then the last of our round robin games against Norbury with a 6-1 victory, Cameron (3), Luke, Hugo and Rhys, allowing us to progress to the Semi Final, to face Norbury in the Semi Final.  Was it one too many games for us, on this hot day, or did Norbury bring their 'A' game, either way it wasn't to be for the boys in blue, who lost the semi 6-3, Cameron (2), Hugo. 

Lots of good quality training during the Summer, will only see us improve!

Hugo, enjoying the attention from the ladies!
