On Friday 8 November the U8A Team travelled to Cumnor House School and played in an exciting 6 a-side tournament. Each boy played superb football and experienced playing in a multitude of positions. In the group stage the A team beat Hawthorns 1-0, Shrewsbury House 2-0, hosts Cumnor house 1-0 and only narrowly lost to Hornsby 2-1. This meant Danes Hill finished 2nd in their group and faced local rivals Downsend in the plate final. This was fitting as all other Danes Hill teams were also playing Downsend. Danes Hill played as a team and everyone gave it their all, the result was a nail biting 3-2 Win meaning Danes Hill won the Plate Final.
Meanwhile the B and C Team travelled away to Downsend with the D team, Athletic and City Team, staying at Danes Hill and hosted Downsend. The B and C teams narrowly lost 2-0 and 3-2 to Downsend but all boys played with determination. At home the D team won 3-3, Athletic won 8-0, what an achievement and our City team lost narrowly by just 1 goal losing 1-0 which shows great depth and talent throughout the teams.
