EAST U11 SEVEN-A-SIDE CHAMPIONSHIP

BROUGHTON MANOR ARE EAST CHAMPIONS

Broughton Manor booked their place at St George's Park for the first time after claiming the U11 7v7 east region title at the rearranged event held at Kings Ely.

Bishops Stortford and The Abbey made quick starts in group A both recording 2-0 victories whilst Milton Keynes Prep also made an excellent start picking up two early victories. Host school Kings Ely began to recover from an early defeat by notching back to back victories before producing an excellent attacking display to defeat previously unbeaten Milton Keynes Prep. That victory was enough to see them top the group ahead of Milton Keynes Prep, with The Abbey and Bishops Stortford also qualifying for the quarter finals.

Broughton Manor were the stand out team in group B going through the group stages unbeaten with 3 wins and a draw to top the group. Kimbolton recovered from an early defeat to claim second spot in a very competitive group with Taverham Hall and St Josephs in the Park completing the top four and making it through to the quarter finals,

The quarter finals produced some incredibly tight matches with three of the four being decided by penalties with Kings Ely, Taverham Hall and Broughton Manor being victorious in the shoot-outs. Kimbolton defeated The Abbey 1-0 to complete the semi-final line up. Kings Ely were fast out of the traps in the semi final racing into an early 2-0 lead against Kimbolton and this was enough to see them through to the final. Penalties were once again needed in the second semi-final and it was Broughton Manor who held their nerve and defeated Taverham Hall in the shoot-out.

The final was an excellent game between the two group winners and it was decided by a second half goal as Broughton Manor took the chance when it came and then defended excellently to see the game out and claim a 1-0 victory and be crowned ISFA East Region U11 champions, and claim the final spot in the National Finals day at St George's Park.
