When we arrived at Kingsbridge we found out who we were first playing against, it was a team called Stokeham and we drew 0-0, but we had lots of opportunities, but at the last minute they hit the post, we were so lucky not to lose. Our next match was against Malbrough and we won 1-0, it was Sid who scored a fantastic goal! That led us to the win! Sadly, we lost a toss and came in 3rd place in our group, but amazingly we played our last game against Aveton Gifford and we drew 2-2, Sid and I scored for the team. Our overall finish was 9th place and man for the match was Jay for making some good slides. Well done everybody!
