North Somerset RTC competed in their second overseas tour in three months at the Hageland Cup, after playing in the East Mallorca Cup.
A total of 25 staff, family and players travelled to Antwerp for one of the biggest youth tournaments in Europe.
North Somerset entered five under-nine teams, three under-11s and an under-15.
And the under-nine squad coached by young Bristol Rovers professional and former NS player Luke Russe and former player Ethan Feltham were group runners-up.
The under-11s led by Alex White and Scott Campbell won their three games with an aggregate score of 8-3 to qualify, as the under-15s finished runners up in ther group despite not conceding a goal after one win and two draws, losing two shootouts.
On the second day, White and Campbell's under-11s drew all three games but lost each shootout to finish fifth out of 32.
The under-15s finshed in a similar position having gone unbeaten and without conceding a goal on both days.
A great time was enjoyed by all and anyoneinterested in playing for the team at future opportunities like these can for a trial at nsfootball.co.uk.
