Coventry & Warwickshire U7 Trophy Event
Rugby Town Juniors U7 Lions v Rugby Town Juniors U7 Eagles
Played Saturday 28 st April 2018
The eagerly anticipated final of the Coventry & Warwickshire U7 Trophy between two Rugby Town teams certainly lived up to expectations.
Bobby Linnecor gave Lions an early lead, but despite the best efforts of Charlie Whittle, George Newbold and Elijah Robinson in defence, Eagles hit back and were ahead by half time.
It was one way traffic in the second half with Lions piling on the pressure; Harry Marson in goal was a virtual spectator, although he had to be alert on a couple of occasions. Luke Chow and Ollie Broad worked tirelessly for little reward as Lions attacked incessantly. Eagles marshalled their defences effectively as their goal led a charmed life and although Aidan Lynch reduced the deficit Eagles ran out worthy winners.
Lions’ hearts were broken, but both teams can be very proud of their performances. It was an exciting game played in a good spirit.
