Rugby Town U8 Tigers – Central Ajax Tournament – WINNERS
The Tigers won their second tournament of the summer claiming the Central Ajax crown. The Tigers stated slowly drawing 1-1 against Coventry Sporting, Max equalising after Sporting took the lead. The next few group games were more straightforward as the Tigers clicked into gear and they beat:
Kingshurst 3-0 (Max 2, Lewis)
Warwick Juniors 8-0 (Max 3, Arjan 2, Logan, Henry, Lewis)
Lillington Juniors 4-0 (Max 3, Alex)
Central Ajax 5-0 (Max 3, Logan, Sion)
Henry and Logan’s energy all day was fantastic getting up and down the pitch, with Alex, Sion and Olly excellent in defence, giving very few chances away and Arjan expertly saving any that they did. Lewis and Max were lethal in front of goal, with both creating several chances as well.
Two goals from Max and a strike from Olly defeated Khalsa 3-0 in the semi final, to set up a final against Firefighters. Max struck twice early on which settled any nerves, but a late Firefighters goal meant they had to work hard to be crowned Champions with a 2-1 victory.
