An excellent Cup win finished the year off in style for the u13 Blues. With the squad depleted those who remained battled on against opponents who although 2 divisions higher were also struggling. Starting with 9 we held our own and were leading towards the end of the first half, when Tom Pollard appeared over the hillside like Julie Andrews! Having seemingly run all the way from his County 5k cross country he was a very welcome sight getting us up to 10 boys.
The extra man paid dividends handsomely in a close game with us eventually pulling away near the end to win 8-4.
The season as a whole has been one of ups and downs but as ever with this side the Good Days completely obscure the forgettable ones.
Thank you to everybody who has stood on freezing touchlines in pouring rain and force 9 gales. To younger siblings who have always supported their older brothers even when they probably didn't want to be there and especially thank you to the fantastic set of boys who have played their hearts out.
Here's to doing it all again after Xmas!
