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
