Tigers Invade Stamford Bridge!
We were really lucky this year to be able to attend a tournament at Chelsea FC to play against teams from all over the country including a number of academy sides.
It was an amazing experience for the boys and they couldn’t wait to go to school the next day and tell all their friends that they’d played (and scored) on the same pitch that has graced so many of the Premier League’s superstars over the years.
Out of their four matches they only lost one and also drew with the eventual winners so all in all another very successful tournament.
The first “HRFC annual Funday” was held on the 6th July and turned out to be an amazing afternoon for everyone involved with the club, helping raise some valuable funds which will allow us to improve things for the boys going into next season.
Congratulations to the O’Reilly family for winning the top prize in our raffle which was a holiday voucher kindly donated by our u11’s sponsors (Thames Travel) and a big thanks to everyone for their efforts prior to, and on the day.
We’d also like to thank many of the parents for lacing up their boots and taking part in what turned out to be a “very” competitive Dad’s Match which was narrowly won by Bram’s team with a last gasp goal from Toby Russell.
We’ve already started the planning process for next year and hope to get the same support from everyone as we enjoyed this time round.
Our u10’s Tigers took part in their first end of season tournament recently and, after 8 tough matches, managed to make it all the way through to the final where they sadly lost on penalties.
We are so proud of their achievement in what was a very strong and competitive tournament and are confident that they’ll be able to go one better this time next year!
Another tournament and another final for our u11’s Tigers team who made it all the way to the last match in the recent Guildford City FC Invitational.
Well done to all the boys involved, and to the Liverpool supporting parents who still managed to make it out for a 9am start the morning after the Champions League Final!
