Trophy event today for the MFC U8’s at KPR’s ground in Kew.  4 teams took part – Carshalton Athletics Green, KPR, Wandgas Youth and MFC.  First up was
MFC v Wandgas, we had Aarya in goal and our captain for this match was Joseph.  It was a very tense game, especially for the supporters!  Great football from both sides and it was a tight game throughout, but thanks to some fantastic work in defence from Miller, a great goal from Jayden and then another from Joseph, assisted perfectly by Lee, the match ended 2-0. Our next opponents were KPR. For this match we had Miller in goal and he was also captain. Again, really good football, talented players from both teams but MFC were on a roll.  Thanks to a great shot fro Freddie, who worked his socks off the whole game, and despite a good effort from the goalie, it hit the back of the net.  With Oscar awesome on the wing and helping out in defence, Aarya working hard and winning the ball for the team in midfield, Jayden rock solid and tireless in defence, another great pass from Freddie to Joseph, who in the perfect position, chipped it in the left corner, the match ended 2-0. We had a welcome rest before our next game, the supporters went off for coffee to calm their nerves whilst Marcello and Tony kept the boys focused.  In our final match we met Carshalton.  Captain was Jayden and goalie Freddie. In both earlier games we’d seen some great football and this game was no different.  Carshalton took an early lead but it was MFC’s day. A well-deserved goal from Lee who showed great skills up front and a perfectly placed cross from Miller to Joseph, who was ready and waiting, and with a flick of his head, as if he was Diego Costa, we had goal number 2, the winning goal. I was a really great day for MFC but we definitely met some tough opponents.  There was some real talent on the pitch from all sides, and it was great to see the football played with such enthusiasm and good spirit.  It was decided that as the whole team played so well, it was impossible to choose a MOM so it was a great big cheer to them all.
