U13 lose to Britannia in JPL National Cup Final!

19th May 2019

In what was our 2nd Cup Final in two weekend, we had with great pleasure the oppourtunity to return to the home of England National Team Training Ground, St George’s Park. Britannia from Liverpool were the opponents this weekend.

Once the game started it was clear for all to see that this was going to be our toughest test of the season. Britannia were a strong & very football competent team, with good qualities from front to back.

The game started with Britannia dominating and then scoring their first goal early on from their striker who went on to score 4 of Britannia’s 5 goals on the day. In fairness BIC never really got going until it was 3 – 0 to Britannia!

Never the less half time came and gave the players a chance to regroup. Second Half started and BIC began to be more positive in possession, which was reward when Ephraim score with a smart finish from inside the box 3-1!

Despite this Britannia did not panic and even when BIC rallied it did not fluster our opponents. Britannia took advantage of some poor BIC defending to make it 4-1 which then was followed by a swift counter attack and then added another to make it 5-1. BIC to their credit did not stop going forward and Ephraim scored a 2nd with a lovely finish from 20 yards out, 5-2 and this is how it finished! BIC finished the final with a pleasing & positive second half performance drawing the second half 2-2!

Huge credit to both teams for what was an entertaining final. Britannia deserve their victory and are a fantastic football team with a lot of players that will surely go onto play academy football in the future.

Our talented U13 Bristol inner CIty must not loose sight of what as been a fantastic season with so many positives to take forward. We must also recognise that this group have lost’s three key players to Bristol City Academy this season so to achieve what we have this season as been a credit to the new and existing squad players!

The players must now use the occasion, experience & disappointment to motivate themselves to want more success in the future, starting with the IBER CUP, Portugal in July 2019.

Great effort and thank you parents with us and back in Bristol for your support!
