Results of the Junior Football Tournament and Penalty Shoot-out on Sunday 27th May 2012

On Sunday afternoon we were treated to a fantastic display of soccer skills by the U8s and U10s from Kineton & Tysoe.  For such young players they showed a great understanding of the game, keeping their shape as a team and playing good football.

There was a great team spirit on both sides and they played hard right to the whistle despite the heat of the blazing sun (which certainly added to the enjoyment as of the spectators... usually when I'm on the touchline it is in several layers and a waterproof, so it was a welcome change).

Each age group played each other twice with the winner being decided by the aggregate score from the matches.  After the matches there was a penalty shoot out competition for Edgehill Games medals followed by a number of other football games (Closest to the Target, Dribble and Score, Through the Hoops and Footbowl) where the players could win some trophies.

The results were:

Under 10s Tournament

  • Gold - Kineton
  • Silver - Tysoe
