‘Ice cool’ shootout YOUTH FOOTBALL

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

WEST Dray­ton Youth U8s were cel­e­brat­ing af­ter win­ning their first tro­phy at the Han­worth Sports Sum­mer Tour­na­ment.

Ge­orgie Mee got the only goal of a tense fi­nal with Mole­sey Ju­niors to give the young­sters their first piece of sil­ver­ware as a club.

They only lost once as they nav­i­gated the group stage with ease and needed penal­ties to beat Hilling­don in the semis as Mee, Grace Gran­tham and goal­keeper Tegh­bir Bains starred in the shootout.

Man­ager Steve Campin said: “I was so proud of the team to­day. I was so ner­vous watch­ing the penalty shootout, but the kids were ice cool. I am over the moon at be­ing able to put our first tro­phy into the club’s tro­phy cab­i­net.”

The rest of the team was made up of Soroush Hafiz, Har­keerat Singh, Molly Campin, Reilly Bar­rett and Ge­orge Ire­land.
