On 21 September, U11s had their first tournament of the year. It was a small tournament with only three teams – City and two Tigers/Cottenham teams. All teams played each other twice and the matches were 10 minutes long. Players in all three teams were of a similar age and size, many moving up from the U9s. 

City played well and at a fast pace. They made good passes and intercepts and interacted well as a team. All players took many shots and quite a few went in but, unfortunately, a lot of the shots were defended. Well done Alex for scoring both our goals and for taking a penalty! 

City drew 0–0 both times against Tigers 1 and lost 2–1 and 4–1 against Tigers 2, the eventual tournament winners. Despite not winning any matches, City U11s made a good start and enjoyed themselves. 

Team: Steph, Masha, Alex (2) and Joel.
