U11 National Success

The U11 Brighton District team to the ESFA 7-a-side national finals (Districts) at Leicester City’s ground on Sunday. We won our group:

V Torbay 0-0

V East Riding 3-1 (og, Ezra Roeg – Elm Grove Primary and Tom Iorpenda – Stanford Juniors)

V Bootle 0-0


This took us into the semi-final v Macclesfield which was 0-0 after extra-time (small goals and good goalkeepers). We won the penalty shoot-out by 4-3 and so went into the final v Lewisham.


Unfortunately, Lewisham was too strong for us and we lost 2-0; however, coming 2nd nationally is the best result we have achieved in my 15 year tenure.
