U16 Grassroots Football Tournament

Earlier this month teams from Hyndburn and Rossendale came together at Hyndburn Leisure Centre to compete in the annual 7v7 tournament. The teams involved were Huncoat United, Rishton United, Oswaldtwistle Marys and Junior Hoops.

Despite the heavy rain, all players battled well to give their teams a chance of getting into the final rounds of the tournament. The semi finals were contested between two Junior Hoops teams, Rishton and Huncoat, with the eventual final being an all Junior Hoops contest.

Both teams were tied until the final minute when Junior Hoops B’s goalkeeper went on a majestic run through the defence and finished with real quality to win the game for his team.

Thank you very much to Hyndburn Leisure Centre for hosting, Kippax Photography for the photos and to all teams who took part.

Matt Parkinson, Football Development Officer commented “It was a great morning for all who took part, showing some positive performances ahead of their season’s starting. We look forward to working with each club this coming year”
