Congratulations to our U12 Academy Boys team who came runners up in a highly ranked national President Weekend tournament in Arizona.
The team played the very best teams in the US and did not let a goal in until the final. The team played a very highly ranked local Arizona team in the final where the boys lost the game 2-1.
The team have been in brilliant form as of late, sitting top of their winter league and finishing 2nd in the top league in the Chicagoland area in the fall season.
Head Coach of this team and Director of Coaching of the club, Dean Harding, commented "The team have been playing with some real intensity and really developed as a team and individually over the past fall and winter season. All these players are like a band of brothers and care massively about each other, this certainly shows when they play. They want the best for themselves and each other. I am very proud of this team and to come to a tournament like this, play some of the best teams in the US and finish runners up is a huge achievement"
Well Done boys, the U12's team still have 4 games left of their winter season and need to win the 3 of them games to finish top the league. Good Luck boys!
