Under 9s Double Triumph at Watton Tournament

Magpies Under 9 teams took part in the first of a series of Spring tournaments.

The Watton Tournament featured 5 clubs with each having an A and B team playing in 2 seperate competitions. Each 7 – a side team had to be a mixture of boys and girls.

Magpies A results:

v Norwich City won 2-0 (goals by Archie Winter and Lotti Summers)

v Dereham won 2-0 (Archie and Sam Hurrn)

v Watton won 1-0 (Archie)

v Pelicans won 2-0 (Archie and Sam)

Magpies won the A Team tournament with maximum points.

Other team members were William Donsworth, Georgie Warren, Max King, Sophie Child and Emly Hunt

Magpies B team (coached by Helen Brook)

v Dereham won 6-0 (Mattehew Beasley 3, Sam McCkluskey 2, Theo Underwood)

v Watton won 1-0 (Alex Kilbourn)

v Norwich City won 3-0 (hat trick by William Simpson)
v Pelicans drew 0-0 (despite almost constant pressure on the Pelis goal)

Magpies won the B team tournament with 10 points
Other team members were Anna Kilbourn, Martha Lawrence, Scarlett Frere-Smith and Rose Winter

All these players have come through our Friday evening training (coached by Helen Brook, Nick McAllen and David Brook) and give the club plenty of hope for the future. The support of their parents and enthusiasm of
the young players was a credit to Magpies.

Magpies Under 9s are in action again next Sunday at Kings Lynn and on April 19th at Dereham.
