Lords Meadow playing fields and Crediton United’s main pitch recently played host to Crediton Youth FC’s annual six a side tournament. The event kindly sponsored by Crediton Dairy, attracted entries of over 170 teams from across the region.
With the sun shinning on both days, and up to sixteen pitches in use at any one time, many said it was one of the club’s best ever tournaments. Congratulations must go to Ivan Webber and Graham Avery on how great the pitches looked over the weekend.
Martin Daniel Club Chairman said – It really was another great tournament for the club. Special thanks must go to the excellent team of volunteers who worked so hard to put on the event, and make it run so smoothly. Without these people, there simply would not be a tournament. Thanks must go as well to all our sponsors and the local companies and organisations that help us stage the event.
On a results front, it was a hugely successful weekend for the club. It had been a few years since a Crediton Youth side had won at their own tournament.
Firstly, the Under 9’s Spartans beat North Tawton City in a very tight and exciting final 1-0. Crediton Youth U15 Girls A team also beat Bideford FC in their final. Crediton Youth U13’s Girls A team, had to settle for runners up, lost 1-0 in the last few seconds to Plymouth Phoenix.
