Football Season off to a Flying Start!

Kingscourt’s U11 A & U11B teams travelled to The Portsmouth Grammar School’s Hilsea Playing Fields on Wednesday to take part in their first football tournament of the season.

The field of competition was large with 35 teams competing. The B team were entered into a Round Robin meaning they had to play against all of the other B teams taking part.  After some skillful football, they were delighted to be crowned winners and awarded with gold medals.

The A team took part in group matches winning through to the final where they were just pipped at the post to take second place and were awarded silver medals.

Mr Allen said, “The boys all played very well and showed great stamina.  Lots of other coaches commented on how well they displayed good sportsmanship throughout the tournament.  Coming first and second out of a big field was excellent, they should be very proud of themselves.”
