U11 Croydon League Football Season Review

Elmhurst School for Boys

14th March 2014 | Sport

Elmhurst has participated in the U11 Croydon Football League for a number of years. There are seven schools in each ‘Group’ in the League facilitating 12 matches in the season.  Most of the Primary Schools in Croydon enter into the league, offering competition of a high level within the under 11 age group.

This year we have a core of U11 players with experience of playing inter-school and Club Football. Ethan M was also selected for the ISA London South District representative team and has played against the Charlton Athletic and Fulham development squads.

In this year’s competition, we played 12 games and won seven. Joshua Brown was top scorer with nine goals, assisted up front by Ethan who contributed five goals of his own. Sulaymaan J played a pivotal role in defence early on, moving effectively into midfield in the latter stages of the season. George F, our only Year 5 boy, played well throughout the season in defence, protecting our outstanding goalkeeper, Taran R-P. Raul U was our second defender, effectively closing down the opposition and clearing the ball from the danger zone. Theo M played on the wing, taking on opposition defensive players and providing quality crosses for the strikers to attack.

Nerusan A was our ever reliable substitute, often replacing Theo on the right wing but also he played in a variety of positions when required to replace an injured player.

The League finished on the 6th March with Elmhurst having been beaten only by the Champions, Greenvale School, leading to a second place finish. The Football season will culminate with Elmhurst School being represented at the ISA 5-a-side National Finals at Dixie Grammar School, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire on Friday 14th March, having qualified as runners-up in the London South Regional Tournament.

Overall, this has been a successful season for the Elmhurst team.
