Two teams from St. Christopher’s were chosen to play in the Primary Sports League U11s Boys Indoor 5-a-side Tournament on Monday 18th February 2019. Wanderers began their first group game with a 1-0 victory to get them off to a good start, which was echoed identically when Albion also won their first game 1-0.
In a slightly tougher group, Albion found their next matches harder but still managed to record further wins and a draw. However, it wasn’t quite enough for the knockout phase.
Wanderers were able to continue their initial good form and finished second in their group, undefeated and winning all but two of their games handsomely. Unfortunately, in a tight semi-final Wanderers weren’t able to capitalise on their consistent pressure with a goal and conceded twice late on. Disappointed but determined after five hours of football, Wanderers dug deep to come from behind in their third/fourth place play-off and win their bronze medal on a 3-2 scoreline.
Albion: Leo Williamson, Danny Al Koheji, William Zhou, Bobby Looby, Hussain Al Aali, Fawaz Al Aradi, Oliver Plunkett, Josh Catchpole.
Wanderers: William Brown, William Hamad, Will Fisher, Noah Dales, Fuad Kanoo, Travis Blyth, Shahmeer Hakeem, Zayd Kahn.
