Y8 Championship Plate Final 21/5/17

Massive congratulations to the FCBS Y8 Football team who emerged victorious over a very tough, well drilled Burlington Danes Academy team in the QPR 11 a-side Championship Plate finals at QPR Stadium Loftus Road.

0-0 at half time, after both teams pressed tirelessly to take that first valuable goal lead in very warm humid conditions.  FCBS broke the deadlock midway into the second half with a perfectly delivered cross from team captain Oliver finding Tahweed to head home that all important opening goal.

With little option, against the clock, Burlington Danes needed a quick goal in response to keep their championship campaign alive, and were almost rewarded for their efforts only for Hossam with a superbly timed tackle within his own penalty area to deny what could have been a certain equaliser 3 minutes before time, however FCBS remained focused and disciplined until the final whistle to claim their 2nd title for the season 2016/17, with the final score 1 - 0, and man of the match Tahweed. An excellent effort and performance by all.
