Soc­cer Sev­ens shows off the best

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -


ON Sun­day, May 14 the 49th Mac­cles­field Pri­mary Soc­cer Sev­ens took place at Hollinhey Pri­mary School, Sutton: Spon­sored by Reliance Net­works.

This pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion show­cased the best in Pri­mary School foot­ball.

Fam­ily and friends gath­ered to sup­port the 8 Fi­nal­ists in what proved to be a nail bit­ing com­pe­ti­tion, and MTFC le­gend Danny Whit­taker was on hand to present the sil­ver­ware.

Marl­bor­ough Girls were vic­to­ri­ous, de­feat­ing Up­ton Pri­ory who put up a fine de­fen­sive dis­play, but were even­tu­ally breached, los­ing 1-0 thanks to a fine long dis­tance strike.

Rainow took home the spoils in the boys com­pe­ti­tion in their fi­nal against Puss Bank.

It was an end to end match, full of fine at­tack­ing foot­ball. The Player of the Day Awards were de­servedly won by Neve Massey (Prest­bury) and Thomas Hall (Rainow) who both con­trib­uted to their teams goal count on the day. Thomas was a con­stant thorn in the op­po­si­tion’s side with his pace and trick­ery, while Neve’s vi­sion and shoot­ing prow­ess con­trib­uted to Prest­bury’s im­pres­sive per­for­mances.

Neve Massey (Prest­bury) and Rhys Eger­ton (Hollinhey) took home the An­nual Penalty Shoot-Out tro­phies de­feat­ing boys and girls from across Mac­cles­field to claim their ti­tles.

“It was a fan­tas­tic fi­nals day played in a com­pet­i­tive yet good na­tured man­ner that was won­der­ful to watch.

“Well done to all that took part!” Ben Daven­port, com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­iser.
