ECU under 12′s win the Balcatta Cup

Posted on April 12, 2013 in 'Juniors 2013'

The ECU under 12′s travelled to Grindleford Reserve for the Pre-season Balcatta Cup with only a bit of pressure after winning the tournament the previous four years.

The weather was great for the beach but would make it a long hard weekend for the boys. The group stage would mean games against hosts Balcatta, Perth (2), Subiaco and Cockburn.

ECU Under 12′s – Back Row – John Higgins ( Coach ), Presley, Kieran, Kody, Liam, Stuart Grant ( Asst Coach ), Charlie, Evan, Miklos, Lee Green ( Asst Coach )

Middle row – Ben, Fraser, Josh, Trent, Ciaran, Dylan, Ollie

Front row – Morgan

Some stand out moments of the tournament

·         Cody magnificently saving a penalty that stopped Perth (2) getting back into the game and gave the whole team a boost

·         Fraser scoring a hat trick in the QF against Cockburn

·         Superb defensive display in all games

·         Everyone involved was a credit to the club

Perth Glory coach Alistair Edwards presented Morgan with the Cup which the boys thoroughly deserved. A great start to the season for the 12s.
