U8N come up just short in an enthralling 3-way Autumn Cup Event

In an exciting series of cup matches, Solihull Navy’s displayed their skills and resilience on the football pitch against strong opposition.

Match 1: Solihull Moors vs. Solihull Navy’s
The opening match against Solihull Moors was a tightly contested affair, with the first half ending in a goalless draw. The standout performers in this half were Max Brooke, who showcased exceptional defending skills, and Poulters, who pulled off some remarkable saves to keep the Navy’s goal intact. George, Dunners and James also played their part, covering every inch of the pitch.

The second half witnessed Solihull Navy taking control of the game. James, Archie, and Elijah emerged as the heroes, each contributing with crucial goals. Elijah, in particular, found the back of the net twice.

Match 2: Solihull Navy’s vs. Arden Forest Yellow
The second match against Arden Forest Yellow, was another intense encounter. The Navy’s team dominated much of the game but struggled to find a way past their resolute opponents. Unfortunately, they fell behind to a well-executed goal by Arden Forest.

However, Solihull Navy displayed incredible determination and resilience, epitomized by the Man of the Match winner, Archie. In a moment of magic, Archie scored a miraculous goal from his own 6-yard box, which will surely be remembered for years to come.

Despite Max Brooke’s spirited efforts (earning him the Spirit of the Navy’s award), throwing himself in front of shots time and again, Archie’s heroics in goal, Elijah’s driving midfield runs, James’ trickery, Dunners effort, Pricey’s determination, George’s tireless running and Poulters fine distribution Arden Forest Yellow managed to edge the Navys.

Solihull Navy’s performance in these matches showcased their commitment and teamwork, and they will undoubtedly continue to be a formidable force in future competitions.

Not our day today, in particularly the match against Forest. Another day the Score line could have been in Navy’s favour.
Well done boys #UTN
