Heroic U18s bow out in East Region Indoor Tournament
17 Dec 2018
 
Norwich City's u18 Boys team performed heroically in tough circumstances at the East Regional Tournament at Culford on Sunday to finish third. Having qualified for the National Finals in the last three seasons, and winning the Norfolk Championship last month, hopes were high this year. However, the timing of this event decimated squad availability and it was a struggle even to get a team out. 
 
City played the first game one player short against Old Loughts and almost caused an upset, scoring first and hitting the post twice, before a late rally from Old Loughts gave them a flattering 4-1 win. Back to full strength for the second game (but with no subs) we took the lead, before a strong IES side capitalised on a flurry of green and yellow cards to end up 5-2 winners. Finally, with only pride to play for in the last game, our exhausted boys came back to win 4-3 against Saffron Walden with a show of real fight and skill. 
 
Whilst the boys will be disappointed not to qualify this year, they should be extremely proud of the way they played. The squad was: Ben Millett, Cameron Cooke, George Harrad, Harry Paterson, Ben Withers and Harry Basset

U18 Boys Win Norfolk Indoor Championship
24 Nov 2018
 
Last night our u18 Boys retained the title of Norfolk U18 Indoor Champions in an exciting competition at Norwich School. First up, City had a tight match against a skilled and tenacious Magpies team. City went ahead twice through Cameron Cooke and Dan Phillips, only for Magpies to equalise both times, before Harry Paterson scored the winner in a 3-2 victory. Man of the Match was goalie Ben Millet who was quick off the line and thwarted several Magpies short corners. 
 
The second match was all out attack against a less experienced but resilient Norwich Dragons side. City won 9-3 with hattricks for Cameron and Dan, two to Ben Withers and one for Tom Bailey. Man of the match was skipper Dan. City go on to the East Indoor Competition which takes place at Culford School on Sunday 16 December. 
 
Finally, well done to the City U16 Boys team who showed real promise in their first indoor competition. City narrowly lost to Dragons and only a very late goal denied them victory against Magpies. However, the boys played with real spirit and got better and better as the competition went on.
