Ely Festival Tournament  08/07/2016

Our Girls team started off without fear and with a bit of zip on the ground, smashed Hywell Dda 7-0 then our both teams were in action at the same time. The girls full of confidence beating  Herbert Thompson 6-0 and our boys kicked off  against a strong Pencaerau side. Starting out nervously our team worked away creating chance after chance but ran out of time finishing the game 0-0.

On a hazy overcast morning  we hadn’t lost a game, the boys then beating Herbert Thompson 5-0 Hywell Dda 6-0,Trelai 4-0 and Millbank 4-0 it was in the boys last match that we were to play a strong Windsor Clive team and with 1 minute to go we were 2-1 down when an amazing shot from Jahvay Scanlon got us level we thought we had won the day when in the last seconds we conceded a late goal to finish the day below Windsor Clive and Pencaerau on goal difference. Well done boys so close !

The girls however went from strength to strength beating every team and scoring 29 goals in total winning 2-0 against Pencaerau  4-0 against Trelai and 6-0 against Millbank then our toughest test nearly running out of steam we let our only goal of the day in against Windsor Clive making it 1-1 with 5 minutes left to play our Lionesses dug deep and scored another 3 goals to finish 4-1 winners and overall champions of the day. An amazing bag of spectacular goals from Aliyah Agius and Cameron Rees and  our girls captain Gaby Stratton-Ross was Player of the Tournament, we will miss her leadership in September.

HCPT Football Tournament 2016

Once again a hard fought 4 matches by both teams on a warm afternoon in Victoria Park. The girls team kicked off first beating St.Josephs 3-1 then following on with a 2-1 win against Holy Family. We then played the same teams again winning 3-1 and 4-0 to reach the final and a team we have played all year St. Patricks. A very close game saw near misses both ends and 1 goal decided it without time for us to reply. Well done girls runners up and fantastic skills and goals from all the team.

The boys had a similar route to the final again winning all their matches reaching the final against St. Bernadette. After giving their all and the sun beating down they lost 5-0 trying to the final whistle.

Well done to all 16 players reaching both finals we are very proud of you !
