Report by Paul Smith End of season (almost) round up!
One quick last return to bring you the latest on the Galmpton junior football. Thank you to John Williams and ‘Homeswapshop’ for this opportunity !
In general things are still going well with the new club set-up, and we hope to continue into next season. Obviously all teams will then be playing up an age group. My Under 12s team will move over to the new Grammar School pitches, leaving plenty of space for new teams at Under 8s and Under 9s. So, if anyone is interested in getting involved and wants to run a team please make contact ASAP. Onto the teams and their performance so far, remembering of course this isn’t “what it’s all about”, but it is still what everyone wants to know...
Under 9s - Div. 1 - A game to play and in 2nd position behind ‘arch rivals’ and good friends, Paignton Pilgrims. Well done boys, including managers Mark & Dave. There is no Cup or Plate competition at this age group.
Under 10s - Div. 2 - Also a game or two to play, and holding 3rd place with only 2 points between the top three, so an exciting finish here. In the Plate competition, the semi-finals are looming against Ipplepen, with Galmpton hot favourites to win. So, good luck guys, including managers Gary & John.
Under 11s - Div. 2 - Still one game to play, but unlikely to change league position from next to bottom; but hey, we’ve enjoyed it, everyone’s played lots of football, and we’re still the only team that beat the league winners Chelston. So, well done guys, I’m really proud of you all. We also lost 1-0 to a very good Buckland Athletic team in the semi-final of the U11s Plate and I’m sure they’ll go on to win the competition. A quick last note to say, very sadly, we lose our key left-side defence/midfield player Natasha Ringrose next season; the only girl currently signed on with the club, and what a star she’s been ... ”thanks Tash!”
Well that’s it. Once again thanks for reading and have a great summer!
