U10S SDYFL TROPHY CUP WINNERS!!
Our U10s SDYFL were entered into a competitive trophy group in with FA rules that are authorised to happen 3 times each season. The lads were put into a group of 6 teams playing 5 games which they finished the group top winning 4 games and losing one. The penultimate game came against Brandhall Colts FC a very strong team who had beaten the Yeltz earlier in the season with both teams needing to win to take home the trophy cup. The Yeltz started very strong and found themselves with a 2 goal lead after 8 minutes then disaster struck...... we only had 7 players available on the day and 10 minutes in our goalkeeper made a brave save but got injured in the process. So with no subs one of the outfield players had to go in goal and the Yeltz were down to 6 In a game that was a must win for both teams. The boys battled, scrapped and played their hearts out to eventually win the game 4.3 and take home the cup!
Well done boys you did Your Coach's, Your Parents and yourselves proud!
