We had the pleasure of welcoming over 200 children from 13 different Altrincham primary schools to the J.Davidson stadium on Monday 13th May for our annual U9 Boys & U9 Girls national league football tournament.
15 rounds of group matches were played before the semi finals took place, the standard throughout the group games was exceptional, with the children showing confidence on the ball and excellent game awareness.
The semi finals were another close round of games with the eventual winners going through to the finals.
For the boys it was Bowdon Church school v St Vincent’s with St Vincent’s the eventual winners in a tense final.
The girls final was between Oldfield Brow & Bowdon Church school. This brilliant game went to penalties when the teams couldn’t be separated even after extra time. Even the penalties went to sudden death with Bowdon Church school the eventual winners.
All the games were played in a fantastic spirit and we would like to to thank all the school staff & parents for bringing the children to the stadium.
A big thanks also to the Altrincham FC community coaches and our referees from our Btec programme.
