Goals Soloman 4. Jolyon 6, Archie 1, Tristan 3

Team: Jol Summers , Archie Winter, Jack Heydon, Jack Free-Smith (captain), Tristan Hipper, Soloman Barker, Jordan Wiseman, Will Hall

We also entered a B team who managed to win 3, draw 2 and only lose 1 (to our A team).
There is plenty of talent and strength in depth with this group of boys. Many of them are only 9 or 10 years old so can play in this age group again next year.

B Team:
James Pring , George and William Donsworth, Jonty Hershell-Shorland, Jack Hobbs, Alex Lawrence, Kieren Peters and Harry Murton

Our Under 11 girls were taking part in their first tournament.

They started nervously in defence and struggled to put any power behind several scoring opportunities.
They lost their first two games by single goals to Dereham and Pelicans.
Magpies drew the 3rd game v Norwich A and this gave the girls some confidence.
The 4th game finally saw Magpies score 2 goals (by Kara Kilborn).
The flood gates now opened and Magpies played their last game full of enthusiasm. Against Watton Kara scored a hat trick and Ellie Eglington added a 4th goal.

Magpies finished the tournament in 4th place but can look forward to the rest of the season with confidence.
Other members of the team were Beatrice Flatt, Katie Crawford, Anna Berry, Emily McCluskey, Naomi Lewis, Holly Hunter and Krystal Jenkins
