HFC Open Day 2016 Mark U10s 914x263.jpeg


Hampstead assembled a squad of regulars and a couple of new faces to enter the St Joseph’s 88 YFC 6-a-side tournament. With no established goalie due to Joe’s broken finger, and coaches Eddie and John missing, it seemed a tough challenge, especially as 25 teams were taking part. In the group stages, Hampstead narrowly lost their first game to eventual cup winners Parkfield (2-1), but beat Headstone Manor Hawks, Veneceremos and Pinner Albion to finish Group A in second with 9 points. This qualified them for the Plate competition, where they beat Ruislip Rangers in the semi-final and St Andrews in the final (in a penalty shoot-out) to take the Plate. Well done to the “Magnificent Seven” (Luc, Joe, Alfie, George, Jake, Camille and Bernard – who was great in goal for many of the games) and Liz and the parents who stood up to the mark to get the team there and guide them to victory!!
