St Chris Bronze Medal Winners
St Christopher’s Under 19 Boys Football Team finished the Unity Cup in third place following a thrilling series of matches in Dubai. The opening game was a 2 – 1 win against the Kuwait English School. The match was played in a very good spirit with some excellent attacking play. The following game was against IKNS of Bahrain which the St Chris team won 2-0. This game really showcased the excellent defending of our relatively young team. Unfortunately, our winning run came to an end against ACS of Doha in very high winds. However, the boys still showed the determination to pick themselves up in the next game with a fantastic 5-0 win against ADNOC of Abu Dhabi. The second day saw an unlucky defeat with a score of 1-0 against KANOO of Bahrain. The boys showed incredible team spirit and excellent play to bounce back with a 3-1 win against BBS of Kuwait. After narrowly missing out on a place in the final, we finished the third place playoff match with a convincing 3-1 defeat of the Kuwait English School. It was an excellent tournament with a number of standout performances. There is a lot of potential in the squad and they will surely be challenging for trophies next season.
