Tokyo U-14 Tournament Update

May 3rd, 2016

The Under 14 Emerging Jets boys completed Match 1 on Sunday May 1st at Tokyo’s Komazawa Olympic General Sports Ground, with the boys putting in a strong performance against defending Tournament Champions Cairo.

Despite going down 1-0 the boys worked hard against a very physically strong Egyptian team.

The boys then went onto two matches yesterday, Monday May 2nd, first against Tokyo Verdy and the last against Ibaraki.

However being put against two difficult Japanese opponents, the boys went down 1-0 to Tokyo Verdy and down 3-0 against Ibaraki. However there were plenty positives that were drawn out of both performances as the boys held strong.

With the first round of matches now complete, the boys finished in 4th place of Group D. Their next match was Fukushima on Tuesday May 3, they achieved a fantastic result winning 1-0 with a late Matthew Burton goal sealing the victory.

Tuesdays win meant they faced Iwate on Wednesday May 4 to play off for 13th & 14th. In difficult conditions the boys went down 3-0 but again put in a solid performance.

Overall the boys will agree the Tour and Tournament were a memorable experience and one they won’t forget!
