Slough Town Juniors U14 boys continued their summer tournament campaign on Saturday at The Woodley United event.
The format of four group games saw Slough draw two, win one and lose one. They conceded just one goal in the group, and had a lot of possession but were not firing on all cylinders.
The quarter-final saw a much better display in which Slough camped in the opposition's half but had to settle for an 8-7 sudden death win on penalties after three fine saves from Leo.
The semi-final saw Slough again boss the game, playing some lovely football. Alfie T scored with a fine finish for a 1-0 win.
In the final against a strong side, Slough scored early on from Nico after some great work from Taylor before he added a second late on to win 2-0. Slough got better as the tournament progressed and deserved to lift the trophy, having conceded just one goal in seven games. Well done boys!
This success follows that of the previous weekend, when the U14 boys sealed the Division 3 title in the Wycombe & South Bucks Minor Football League.
Also last weekend, other STJFC teams were in tournament action. The U9 boys won the Beaconsfield tournament held at Arbour Park without losing a game.
Meanwhile, the U12 girls were the only all-girl team in the Thames Valley Youth tournament, finishing 4th in their group. The first tournament for the girls saw them come up against some very strong boys teams. It was a challenge for the girls to play against such experienced sides, but they rose to it. Matching some of the teams and playing them off the park, they grabbed the attention of many teams around the tournament. Not only did the girls play great football but proved themselves as great role models for some of the younger girls watching. It was a good day out and great experience for the girls, who are looking forward to the next challenge.
Well done to everyone who played over the last two weekends!
