Junior tournament a big success

WELLS City FC held a hugely successful junior football tournament on a baking weekend in mid-June.

The club staged a slimmed-down version of its popular annual event due to Covid restrictions, but almost 100 junior teams were still in attendance over the weekend of June 12-13.

Teams from U7s up to U14s battled it out in group stages held across five pitches at the club’s Athletic Ground home, with group winners and runners-up going on to contest semi-final and then final matches to decide the winners of each age group.

Wells City won the U7, U8 and U12 categories, with Worcester City winning the U9s, Westfield the U10s, Bridgwater VPRs the U11s, Wessex Titans the U13s and Weymouth the U14s. The weekend was a huge success, with many coaches and parents praising the organisation and smooth running of the Covid-safe event, which had been approved and sanctioned by the Somerset Football Association.

• Wells City U7s (pictured) were victorious at the Wells City FC tournament held over the weekend of June 12 and 13. The Blues scored 20 goals and only conceded one across all seven of their matches. The final against a very strong Westfield side was decided on a penalty shootout. This was an amazing achievement for their first competitive tournament.
