On Saturday 12th May, Southwell City Scorpions Under 9’s completed the league and cup double, to end what turned out to be a successful season for the team. They won 2-1 in the final of the YEL Under 9’s Cup final at Hucknall Rolls Royce, thanks to two goals from Lewis Swift. Two weeks previously the team had completed the competitive league season, finishing top of the YEL Saturday Division 1, winning all 5 out of 5 games.
At the start of the season the team moved from 5 aside to 7 aside and have progressed and developed both as individuals and as a team throughout the course of the season. Since Christmas the team have won every game and over the course of the season they have won 19 out of 23 games, scoring 96 goals, with a goal difference of +61. A fantastic effort!
Southwell City Under 9’s currently has two teams the ‘Scorpions’ and the ‘Warriors’ and are looking to expand that to three teams for the 2018/2019 season. If there are any players, currently year 2, who are looking to join a local football team then please email [email protected].
