The A Team took part in the Everton F.C. Academy Premier League Tournament for Liverpool and Sefton Schools at the Power League in Kirkdale, winning the tournament and now progress to the finals at Finch Farm.
Farnborough's opening match saw them complete a very convincing 10 nil win over Longmoor B, which was quite a feat as the games were only 5 minutes each way! Their second game saw another sound performance with a 4 nil victory over St.Monica's from Bootle. Our third encounter was a closer game, however the team secured another victory, this time 2-1 against New Park. Time for lunch and the team had already qualified for the semi-final!
The team completed their group games with yet another win, this time 2 nil over Our Lady of Good Help. This set up a semi-final against Longmoor and a place in the final with chance to go through to Finch Farm.
The final saw the A Team go behind early on to a free-scoring St Teresa's but yet again the team showed their character and created a 3-1 lead . However the extra game they had played in the qualifying rounds began to take it's toll and the team conceded 2 goals which meant the team now faced the dreaded penalty shoot out! Unlike the England team, Farnborough's players were supremely confident and Alex, Adam, Charlotte and Robbie all scored from the spot and saw Farnborough crowned Everton Champions. The team now play in the finals at Finch Farm.
The semi-final was closely fought match with Longmoor taking the lead. Farnborough changed formation and with only two minutes left in the match, managed to gain an equaliser through Robbie J. The team showed great resolve and continued to press for a winner and with moments to go Robbie struck again to secure a place in the final.
Mr Hanlon and all the parents were incredibly proud of the teams performance and wish them best of luck at Finch Farm.
