Whitstable Town U8 Reds tournament success carries on.


The U8s Reds were asked if they would like to fill a last minute cancelled spot in what was advertised as the best tournament in Kent.

Not to turn down a challenge Red Team duly accepted.

They found themselves in a sea of talent ranging from London to Ramsgate.

There were 4 leagues in the tournament, premiership, championship, Europa league and champions league.

Red Team ran out winners of their group, not dropping a single point.

This naturally progressed them into the Champions League section of the tournament. They faced off against a team billed as the best in the area not losing a league game in 3 seasons (very impressive).

It was a hard fought game, ending up going to penalties after a last second goal from Ronnie hit the back of the net from a corner kick. Heroics from our goalkeeper and flawless penalties (yes Jack!) saw them through to the final.

Our opponents in the final had not dropped a point in the tournament which mirrored the Red Teams' performance.

With the pitch gradient and wind against us, Red Team gave their all, a close-fought game with the opposition going 1 goal ahead within 5 minutes. Red Team dug deep with Lewis putting in a real shift on the left and Teddy doing the same on the right. With one minute to go Red Team smashed the ball into the back of the net. In the dying seconds, Cato picked the ball up and drove forward to nearly secure the win …..

Oh no….. there was one outcome, Penalties……… again……..

Ellis and Joseph confidently buried their penalties for Red Team and with the mighty Miles (undefeated in all penalty shoots - three in a month !) between the sticks there was only going to be one inevitable outcome
