NCYL5U14PenaltyWebOver 200 players from 35 church youth football teams lined up in the Norfolk Christian Youth League Five-a-side tournament on Saturday June 9, at Heartsease Towers in Norwich.
Six teams competed in the Under-10 competition which saw Cringleford A beat St Peter’s Easton 1-0 in the final.
In the Under-12 competition, a further six teams fought it out until St John’s won their first trophy of the day in a tense 0-0 final against Holy Trinity. St John’s emerged triumphant in the penalty shoot-out.
NCYLU14BroadlandWebA well-contested Under-14 competition saw 11 teams compete in two groups. Broadland Lads beat Kings to reach the final while St Peter’s Easton A beat Surrey Chapel B to join them. The final produced a 0-0 full-time score when Broadland Lads won the trophy with a 3-0 penalty-shoot-out success (see right and above).
In the Under-16 competition, of the 12 teams who took part, league title winners St John’s proved their strength in depth by reaching the final with both their A and B sides (pictured below). The St John’s A side then emerged victorious with a 2-0 win.
NCYLU16StJohnsWebThe Christian Adult League also stages a five-a-side competition at Heartsease Towers on Saturday June 16 from 1pm as a tribute to John Sewell, a Witard Road Baptist Church player, who tragically, was killed last year, not far from where the tournament is set to take place.
The Norfolk Christian Combined Adult and Youth League holds its AGM on Thursday June 21 and is appealing for volunteers to join its committee. League secretary Robert Varley said: “Our committee is pretty small and we would like to hear from people who have a burden for youth work and perhaps are even interested in football, although that's not a prerequisite.”
The AGM takes place at Surrey Chapel, 7.30 for 8pm start.  More details from Robert on
