In what we hope could be the start of a long running Eagles tradition, our U16 team took on the Eagles Coaches yesterday for their final ever game as an Eagles team.
It was a great event all round, (coaches even managing to play 80 minutes!).
The large crowd that gathered at Johnson Road were treated to a lively game, with spectacular goals at both ends and some great play by both teams.
The U16s ran the coaches close but in the end the old timers just nicked it. I know for a fact there are some stiff and sore legs today!
Most importantly the game was played with great spirit – what a fantastic bunch of lads the U16s are, well done to Chris F and the coaching team for their hard work, time and effort over the years. You could see this has paid off based on their togetherness and ability as a team.
Good luck in wherever you play football next and in your future careers.
Thanks to Chris for arranging, and Bakey arranging the XL kits for the coaches! Keep your eye out for the same fixture this time next year, with what will be the latest U16s team to take on the coaches!
