Amsterdam Cup Junior Football Tournament
On the weekend of Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th May over 160 teams participated in the Amsterdam Cup Junior Football Tournament. In its 12th year this well established and brilliantly run festival is the ideal culmination to the football season and Burleigh Travel would like to congratulate the winners at each age group.
Edenham High School took two teams across at U14 and U15 age groups and both had successful tournaments. The U14 side had a fantastic day on the Saturday winning all four group matches and thus progressing to the final group on the Sunday. They played some fantastic football throughout both days and just narrowly lost out on winning their age group by 1 point! The U15 side also played some wonderful football and came 3rd in their group on the first day and progressed through to the plate competition. They came 2nd in their group and therefore played a 3rd/4th place playoff and after a tough game they came through to triumph and finish 3rd in the 2nd tier competition and our congratulations go to both teams.
K9 Colts FC U16 had an interesting first day of competition where they managed to draw three of their four games and as such finished 4th in their group. They then entered the 2nd tier competition where a win, two draws and a defeat ensured they finished a very respectable 3rd place. Special mention must go to the defence who only conceded 4 goals in 8 games over the weekend.
NJ Wythenshawe FC U17 went in to the competition confident of progressing well and they did not disappoint being unbeaten throughout the first day to ensure they topped their group on goal difference. On the Sunday the team played exceptionally well however two draws in their four matches meant they had to settle for a fantastic 2nd place. Credit must go to the team on a wonderful achievement.
Burleigh Travel would like to congratulate all teams on their fantastic achievements with two teams finishing 2nd and two 3rd in their respective age groups.
