Mixed fortunes at the Bicester Tournament for U12s

15 March 2015

U12s ? - ? Bicester Under 12s

P4 W1 D2 L1 GF1 GA1

Thankfully, unlike last year, the tournament wasn't snowed off, but the middle of March still provided some unwelcome weather; bitterly cold and wet. Hawks A had four pool games and each ten minute match was a tight affair on a surprisingly large, half-pitch for seven aside. First up was our usual nemesis, Wallingford A, but we were dogged in defence and sprung into the lead with a fierce shot from Magnus Nesbitt to score and start with a 1-0 win. Two further games saw us compete gamely but not create many chances and we drew 0-0 with Thame B, after narrowly losing to home team Bicester B 0-1, despite heroics from Louis Clarkson in goal. Then we were forced to wait for an hour before our last game and most players decamped to anywhere that was a bit warmer. Unfortunately, Sophia Kucan got stuck in the queue for the toilets and we missed her at the start of the last game, which was a further 0-0 draw with Witney A in a shortened game. No team photos I'm afraid as we all ran frozen to our heated cars and home! Thanks to all our brave spectators for their support and a great team effort from all.

Team: Louis Clarkson, Jude Dashwood, Louis Atkins, Magnus Nesbitt, Josh Williamson, Charlotte Hanslip, Sophia Kucan, Mary Parish, Mopsy Peel, Libby Smithson
