The U/8’s lost in the finals on penalties but not forgetting they took player of the tournament, Micael Jardim Enrique. Future stars in this team with enormous potential and enormous talent.
The U/10’s played with heart and determination and fought till the end, becoming future stars in the making. The U/15’s are the seniors of tomorrow with exciting times ahead of them.
