Today (12th February) our Elite Under 10,11 & 12 groups visited Sheffield United Academy to play games. The setup and facilities are fantastic and the environment created would entice any young player to want to play there.

The games were a great experience for our boys and they all performed admirably. The Under 10’s played indoors in a 6-a-side game against some talented young players. Goals flew in at both ends and we had many players on the scoresheet. The Under 11’s, mixed with a few Under 10’s, played 2 x 7-a-side games outdoors. Both games were entertaining and we were very impressed with the ability of their players. Our boys did very well against them before understandably tiring in the final stages of the game. The Under 12’s played in a 9-a-side game outdoors and this was possibly the game of the day. Again, lots of entertainment with goals at both ends.

We don’t normally single players out but credit to our goalkeepers, Rocco Parkin, Cameron Dyson, James Mattok, Jake Dooler and Brandon Harrison today who all had magnificent games. Thanks to Sheffield United for the invitation and to the all family members for getting the boys there.
