U10 Tigers take the NEHYL Invicta Cup

Under expert guidance of coach Rob Barnes, the U10 Tigers won the NEHYL Invicta Cup against Petersfield Town on November 25th. The Tigers won all three of their pool games and headed to the final with confidence but also slightly nervous as many of the players had reached a final earlier in the year only to lose on penalties. The Tigers put on the pressure and had the majority of the possession at the start but while they pushed forward Petersfield, with a very strong attacking duo, broke free in Leicester City style and managed to get through and go 1-0 up. The crowd were shocked and with nerves creeping in the Tigers slightly lost the beautiful passing game that they had shown to reach the final. Undeterred though, they battled back and won many of the tackles and the pressure finally paid off when they equalized. The Tigers continued to push but Petersfield’s goalkeeper made it very frustrating and although Petersfield’s deadly duo upfront tried hard,  the Tigers defensive unit and goalkeeper were just too good for them.  Finally, with the thought of extra time and another possible penalty shoot out looming the Tigers pulled off some great passing through the centre and broke free to secure a second goal, resulting in a final score of : CPR U10 Tigers:2 – Petersfield Town FC U10: 1. Well done to the boys, a truly great team effort throughout the whole...

U10 Eagles win the NEHYL Challenge Cup!

The U10 Eagles, led by Coaches Lee Edwards, Darren Stacey and Ian Newrick have scooped the NEHYL Challenge Cup in a 3-0 victory over Crookham Rovers Titans. Whilst Crookham put on an impressive and hard fought battle, the first goal came from CPR after just ten minutes. The Eagles then gave Crookham very little opportunity to break down their defence and the second half saw two further goals. A strong performance during the Autumn period has also resulted in the Eagles be promoted in the NEHYL so we look forward to seeing more good things from them during the Spring. Many congratulations to...
