“Most valuable player” was Matt Prawidlo for his 6 goals and “Best player” Adam Sylme in defence.

In total 11 goals for and 0 against for the whole tournament is a healthy return for any team

This was the first competition the U19 girls team have played together and what a fantastic debut it was! In the group stages they were undefeated beating both Swans 2-0 and the British College 3-0, with a 0-0 draw against the Swedish school. This took them through to the quarter finals where they were drawn against Laude, beating them 3-0. The girls went through to the semi-final up against the British College again, going 1-0 up in the first 5 minutes. Unfortunately, a late goal meant it finished 1-1 resulting in sudden death penalties which we were very unlucky to lose by 1 goal. Scoring 10 goals overall and only conceding 1 throughout the whole tournament shows what potential this squad has and we look forward to next competition. “Most valuable player“ was awarded to Carlota Scariolo for her efforts in defence and “Player of the tournament” to Sofia Elgaily for being the top goal scorer.
