U11's visit Portugal
Chipstead entered 2 U11 teams (Eagles & Kestrels) in the Europa Cup, Lisbon this weekend, which was being played in Benfica’s Estadio Da Luz.
12 teams took part at the u11 age from all over the UK, Portugal and even 1 team from India. 3 groups of 4 then qualified for the Cup, Plate or Shield depending on where they finished in the group.
The Kestrels won their qualifying group, and our semi final, only to lose 4-0 in the final of the Cup against a local Portuguese Academy Side (SC Linda a Velha).
The Eagles finished second in their group, to qualify for the Plate, where they lost in their semi final, but then beat Salisbury United on penalties for the 3rd/4th play off (after being 3-0 down).
A great performance from both teams, in an extremely competitive pool of clubs.
