Tournament win without conceding a single goal

Rugby Town U8s Tigers are delighted to have won the Bedworth Tournament. First they had to get through a group stage, where they won all three games, scoring 13 goals. Next they played in a tough quarter-final match, which they won on penalties against Alvis.

They came up against the hosts in the semis, which again was tough, but Tigers came through winning 2-0.

In the final Tigers played a good Athletic team. Both teams played some excellent football. Tigers had the better of the chances and were unlucky not to convert.

Again this match went to penalties, which Tigers won due to two good saves from goalkeeper Ellis.

As a team Tigers really showed how good they have become through this year, with the attack and midfield showing great creativity.

But the defence need to be recognised for the great work they did on the day, not letting a goal in all tournament.
