Panthers win final tournament

With one week to go until the start of the season, U13 Panthers ended pre-season with a win in the 11-a-side tournament at Old Coulsdon.

The weekend marked a hat-trick of tournament victories for the Panthers, and it was plain sailing with 17 goals scored and one conceded.

Winning their group and progressing with Leatherhead into the semi-finals, Panthers saw off the hosts with a convincing 4-0 win in the final four. The Tanners lost on penalties to Epsom & Ewell tournament winners Banstead in their match.

A tight affair in the final followed, but the Panthers never really looked like conceding. A headed goal from tournament top scorer Devon gave the Panthers a 1-0 win and another trophy to add to the cabinet.

Bring on the new season!
