The U7s, U8’s and U9s continued thier amazing run of tournament form at last weekends Dawlish tournament with the U9s narrowly missing out 1-0 to KM United in the final.
Look at the smiles on these kids faces – ??
Colyton is proving the tournament to enter for West Exe Youth as this year saw the U9s and U10s triumph, taking the trophy home.
This years youngest West Exe team and tournament newbies U7’s , although no winners trophy was available, still managed to remain unbeaten all day, only coming unstuck when they faced each other!
West Exe U10s celebrating victory, pipping 15 other teams to the trophy. Played out of their skin all day only conceding 1 goal in total. Worrying time in the group stages when 2 players fell unwell, with no subs to fall back on, they threw back on the blue shirt and powered to victory.
West Exe U9s returning to the tournament as champions go unbeaten against 6 other teams, managing to win this tournament for a 2nd successive year winning 2-0 in the final.The U7s looking smart and gaining their first taste of tournament fun. Going unbeaten is no mean feat, the future is looking bright for Steve and his team.
To have 2 teams winning back to back tournament here and now the U7s looking strong too, we may not be allowed back in Colyton……..
