Success at Brinklow festival

The Under 11 Pumas success story continued with their third trophy win in three weeks. This time at a highly competitive five-a-side festival at Brinklow FC.

They negotiated the group phase fairly comfortably winning three and drawing one, which lead to them topping the group.

Into the semi finals against Firefighters and Pumas took the lead through Dylan but they equalised soon after. Extra time didn’t produce further goals and Pumas went through on penalties, Joe being the hero with two good saves.

The final was against Copsewood and they took the lead, only for Yaqub to quickly reply. Extra time came and birthday boy Leo C secured the win with a ‘Golden Goal’ header into the bottom corner.

A great day for all yet again.

Scorers: Dylan 6, Yaqub 4, John 2, Leo C 2, Charlie, Jamie.
