As some of you may know Lucas (Year 1 Dragonflies) trains with Premiership clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea at their development centres, but he also plays for a local club; Muswell Hill Football Academy.  In the last two weekends his under 7’s team have played in two challenging tournaments and won both events outright.  Two weeks ago they competed at a  local tournament in Muswell Hill  involving several teams from Highgate, Hornsey etc. and after playing a handful of games over the morning, all of which they won,  they took home the trophy !

Last weekend, Lucas also took part in a huge club event held over two days at Butlins in Bognor Regis.  The ESF festival of football has over 1100 teams and 35’000 people joining in each year and is the biggest youth football event in the UK.  Lucas and his team played 3 matches on the Saturday, and two games on Sunday before progressing to the semi-finals and then winning the grand final for the under 7’s.   The presentation of the trophy itself was like an Oscar’s ceremony with fireworks and hundreds of young footballers receiving recognition for playing, winning and fair play.  Lucas received his trophy from Wayne Bridge (Ex-Chelsea and England star) and it has not left his side since.

As a result of winning their tournament, the team have now been invited to play at the prestigious grand finale event, the champion of champions tournament in July which will be held at St Georges park, the England football team’s training complex in Staffordshire.  Good luck Lucas!
