An enjoyable day was had this Bank Holiday Monday at the Chesterton Tournament, which had enough U12 teams to have two leagues of 5.

Bure Bark won three of their group games, and lost one against a strong Chesterton team one nil.

In the play-offs the lads were drawn against the other Chesterton team, who had won their league. The match could not be settled in normal time, and in the resultant penalties, Oscar Honour, Tommy Mansley and Ethan Cavill all scored to take us through to the final.

The final was against Summertown Cobras. Bure Park held their own and had opportunities to win but the ball just would not go in.

Penalties again therefore, but this time one of ours was saved.

Still, runners-up in a competition with some very good sides was an excellent result.
