U8s v Aldwickbury

Over 100 boys from Years 3 & 4 (mainly Year 3), from Aldwickbury, Westbrook Hay and Lockers took part in a mini tournament at Lockers. For many of the participants it was probably the first competitive game of football they have played in their first season of learning how to play football. The thing I love about this age group is their enthusiasm and passion for the game. Skills still need to be worked on as do such things as field position. Often there are 10 bodies within 3m of the ball. The matches were competitive with some close scores. I spoke to one boy who proudly told me: “I scored 3 goals – it was a miracle!” Well done to all of those who took part.
