Powered by Mighty Oats – U11 Football Tournaments
On 27 and 28 January 2022, the Crewe Alexandra Soccer Centre at Shavington played host to two 7-a-side primary school tournaments for year 5 and 6 pupils from schools across Cheshire. The two tournaments were the U11 Schools Cup for School Teams (mixed gender) and the U11 Girls Cup. Schools competed in district rounds in the autumn and the successful schools then progressed to the county finals at Crewe organised by Cheshire Schools FA. Altogether, over the two days, nearly 400 youngsters from across the county enjoyed a great afternoon of football. Each participant received an attractive certificate of attendance and the finalists’ received medals.
The winning Schools were:
Schools Cup for School Teams: Upton Heath, Chester, who beat Childer Thornton, Ellesmere Port, in a penalty shoot-out after a 0-0 draw
Girls Cup: Winsford High Street who beat Huntington, Chester, 2-0.
Both winning schools now go on to the Northern Regional finals to be held in March. As a business based in Crewe, who support both Crewe Alex Soccer Centre and local school initiatives, Mornflake have sponsored these tournaments for several years. John Clark, Secretary of Cheshire Schools FA, said “We are very grateful to Mornflake for its support for our tournaments over the past few years. Sponsorship ensures that we are able to stage two excellent tournaments at a first-rate venue which so many youngsters and their teachers will long remember. We are very proud of our connection with such a prestigious Cheshire business.”
Good luck to our two winning schools in the next round of these national competitions!
