Tonbridge Angels under 13s had a very busy weekend! first playing in the Whyteleafe tournament Saturday, then taking part in the Tonbridge Carnival supporting the clubs family ethos and then finishing back at the marquee for their end of season party with the Chairman.
Steve Churcher presented all the boys with their medals for finishing as runners up in the Kent Youth Central Division and then presented players player to Kian Austin and supporters player to David Howie. It was a fitting end to a great season that saw the team also get to both semi-finals of the cup.
The boys have been very busy in tournaments the last few weeks managing to get two teams in all them so far. For Whyteleafe though they had to go with the minimum of six in each team on the hottest day of the year, but one team won the Shield and the other lost 1-0 in the final of the cup. The week before both teams played each other in the final at the Barming tournament, it was actually a complete Tonbridge affair as was refereed by Tonbridge first team player Liam Smith ! who is great example to the boys on what they can achieve through the Youth set up at the club. The week before at Langton again both teams played each other in the semis and then again losing in the final. Next week sees the team at the Ridgeway tournament and the boys will then be taking a well-earned rest for July.
Pre-season training will once again start with Luke Blewden taking the boys for SAQ’s and they will then look to play some pre-season friendlies in August dates to be confirmed.
