Moorbridge Sports Academy attended the U16 Beacon of Light Football Tournament at the Beacon of Light, a tournament that involved some fantastic teams from around the North East. We entered one team into the U16's category with a mix of boys and girls with the majority still in KS3.

There were 10 teams in the U16 category which halved into two groups, which over 100+ pupils participated on the day. We had arrived at the venue a little before 9.30am to look around the facility. On the fourth floor of the building there was a top quality 4G area where we would be playing our games. An excellent opportunity for all our of pupils involved to play on such a fantastic surface.

All of our 8 players were fantastic throughout, this showed as we were often the underdogs going into games with teams that had much bigger, stronger and older players than us. The determination, encouragement and fantastic team play on show brought some feedback from other teams commending our players on how they were playing the game on such a small sided pitch. 

During the semi final against the Beacon of Light, we conceded an early goal however the determination and energy shown to get back into the game was excellent to see. Our players worked extremely hard in order to get into the final, where we played against a Hartlepool team who were well drilled and played a fantastic style of football. It was an exciting end to end game of football which could have seen either team take away the trophy however on this occasion it wasn't Moorbridge.
