Portishead Juniors Under-10s celebrate winning the championship and being tournament champions.

PICTURED right are the successful Portishead Juniors Under-10 squad with a host of medals they have won this season.

Manager and coach Mark Williams said he has been delighted with the way in which the boys have progressed this season and to finish as champions in a competitive league.

At the recent awards ceremony, the boys collected their awards for league champions and were later awarded their awards for tournament champions at the recent PJFC tournament.

Awards this year also went to: Brad Patch for A team manager’s player of the year and also players’ player of the year. Morgan Davies won the most improved player award for A team, and in the B team, the awards went to Steven Wait for manager’s player and also the players’ player of the season and Matty Twiggs picked up the most improved for the B team.

The Under-11s took part in the Clevedon football tournament at the Strode Playing Fields and celebrated their second tournament win, having won their own Portishead tournament only a couple of weeks ago.

Coach Dave Appleford said: “The rain obviously didn’t dampen the boys’ spirit. The boys never lost a match during the event and they didn’t concede a goal either, which in itself is quite a feat.”

The Under-11s team kit is sponsored by the recently refurbished McDonald’s restaurant in Portishead.
