Football tournament report


Euro cup


There were 16 teams, 4 teams in each group. Each game was 10 minutes long, the groups  were A,B,C and D. We were in group A with Yr Hafod A, Maes–Y-Mynydd A ,Brynteg. In this report we will tell you all about the football tournament and how we came 8th. Football, which was invented in 1863, is one of if not the best sport ever. The question is: how did we perform in the tournament?


The lineups were:

Evan GK

Razey CB


Isaac CB

Tomas CDM

Jude Cm/ST

Lily LM

Leo LM

Luke RM

Thom ST


Match 1: Minera 1-0 Brynteg. The goal scorer was Thom. 

Match 2: Maes-y-mynydd 0-1 Minera. Goalscorer: Luke. 

Match 3: Minera 0-0 Yr Hafod A. 


This was the group stage but it didn't matter where you placed because everyone went through to the round of 16 . We came in 2nd in the group losing 1st because of goal difference. 


In the round of 16 we played Barker’s Lane and unfortunately lost 1-0. It was a tough match: we should have won. Coincidentally, Barker's Lane made it to the final. From then on we had friendlies. The first friendly was against Maes -Y-Mynydd B; we won 2-0 and Jude scored both goals. Then we played Brynteg and we lost 2-1; Jude scored the goal. At the end we all watched the final that was Barkers Lane vs Yr Hafod A, Johnstown. In the final, the winner was yr Hafod A who ended up winning 2-0. 


In conclusion, we did well but not good enough to win the tournament and Yr Hafod A won the whole thing. All the matches were tough and all of them were fun and we won a few games. Overall the tournament was very fun for all the teams who came to play in the Euros .
