After a fine run of 8 wins on the trot, Southwell City U10 Sunday team has finally been stopped. The perfect start to the season finally came to an end when the players were held to a draw by Bulwell Athletic last month.
City’s great start to the season began with a win against Burton Joyce in September. Victories then followed against teams from Calverton, West Bridgford and Dunkirk, amongst others.
As well as winning regularly, the team have not been shy in front of goal. Many of the players have got onto the scoresheet in games and there have been three hat-tricks so far – two for Freddie Rayns and one for Alex Gardner.
The team currently plays in Division Four of the Young Elizabethan League and will start 2017 with play-off fixtures against Bulwell and Burton Joyce to decide who will be crowned champions of the winter division.
After the excitement of the league campaign is over, they then head into a cup game against Beaufort United White U10 on January 15th.
The team can be proud of what they have achieved since the beginning of the season. Here’s hoping that 2017 proves to be as successful as the year just gone!
