Under 9's - Winners Of Ringmer Rovers Tournament
and Third Place in Ringmer Rovers Tournament.
2 Under 9's Teams played extremely well both getting through to the Quarter Finals where 1 team met Lewes Bridge View and beat the 2-0 and the other team met Hawks Youth with a 0-0 draw but won on Penalties.  Both teams then went on to meet Hove Park Colts in their respective semi-finals from which we were hoping for a Hollingbury V Hollingbury Final, but to no avail as 1 team were cruelly beaten on Penalties, but the other team won. To come to a gripping Hollingbury Hawks v Hove Park Colts Final.  After a game with many chances (and and 7.30pm) the game was drawn and went to Penalties in which Hollingbury Hawks were the winners.
The boys all played impeccably well and other teams commented on thier sportsmanship.

Well Done to both teams. A wonderful Day.
