An incredible morning of football organised by the JFA Community team took place at Springfield Stadium on Sunday 18th February offering over 100 children the opportunity to play football in a fun safe environment.
16 teams took part in round robin format where the poor weather did not dampen any spirits. GS United were fortunate enough on this a occasion to have two mixed Year 2&3 teams participating.
Fixtures against Jersey Wanderers boys and girls teams, St.Ouen, Trinity, St.Clement, St.Peter and St.Pauls saw GS United play a variety of opponents aiding our development. Goals scored throughout the morning by Harry S, Zachary, Taylor, Eddie, Alex and a great Hat-trick in the final game by Sonny provided some great entertainment for spectators! And lets not forget some outstanding goalkeeping performances by Jake, Quinlan and Eddie too!
Aside from the action, a huge highlight of the day was our players sportsmanship. Fantastic behaviour all round and big thank you to Bailey, Zachary and Kailan who played for an opponents team without any issues whatsoever as they were short of players. Their amazing sportsmanship ensuring that the game went ahead. Well done to each of you and well done all players involved in the event.
A huge thank you to our parents braving the elements and keeping motivation high for our youngsters and also to Daniel Seviour and Lucy Even from the JFA Community Team.
We can't wait until the next one!
