After only 5 weeks training, and not all together. We, Hessle Sporting Warriors played our first ever games. We entered a tournament. Some of the lads hadn’t ever played a match before.
We knew this would be a difficult evening. Some great teams around Hull entered, including Hull United, Hessle Rangers and South Cave. Whilst we didn’t lift the trophy.. the boys came close to reaching finals!
We were very unlucky to lose our first game 4-2 after taking an early lead. Also hitting the post several times. This was our first ever match as a team.
The highlight of the tournament though, was our very own match. A massive 7-2 win. This was the game the boys found their shape and enjoyed playing football. It was a proud moment for all involved, the kids, coaches and parents. The nerves had gone out the window and they played some really good football.
We’ve got several other friendlies lined up in the coming weeks. Keep checking back to find out more!
