End of Season Report

We started the season like a team in meltdown, but rallied the troops and finished the season as high fliers.

Moving up to 11-A-Side football this season was an eye opener for the players and myself as a manager. The adventures of the season tested us to the limit (as a team) and it was pleasing to see that the dedication and support of both our players and the parents saw us through.

The best lesson from this year’s experience is that : “As important as wining a match may be, it certainly wasn’t everything and what really matters are the people who make the team tick (the players and parents)”.

As testing as the season was, we kept our spirits going (both on and off the pitch) and our efforts were rewarded with the Thomas Hardy Cup. Winning the cup is a fantastic achievement for our players and I could not have asked for more spirit and commitment than they’d shown throughout the season.

I am delighted for the boys and trust they will thrive from this success and carry the confidence that comes with being cup champions on to next season.

My thanks go out to every single parent of our players for their loyalty and support. A well deserved thank you to Darren Hart for helping to coach the boys and refereeing our home matches.

I would also like to thank “The Prince of Bengal” (POB restaurant) for their continued sponsorship.
