​​​​​​U13s play in Blackpool Tournament

On the weekend of May 13th-14th 2017 15 boys from the U13s Whites and Blues teams ​represented KDR at ​the Blackpool Youth Football Tournament. Playing 11 a side competitive football for the first time, the boys acquitted themselves admirably against some more experienced teams drawn from all over the North of England.

We played three games on Saturday, losing 0-4 to Cramlington Juniors and 0-1 to Blacon Youth, before beating Pennine Juniors 2-1 with goals form Johnnie Binner and Joe Kusinski. The next day we lost 0-3 to YMCA and 0-2 to Sandbach United, to finish fifth in our group.

Progressing to the knock-out Plate competition, a Jake Parkin goal against Cramlington Town looked to have been enough to see us into the next round, but a late equaliser saw the game go to penalties. Three magnificent saves by Jake Levine gave us victory. Alas, just like England we went out at the Quarter Final stage, going down to a single goal against Shaf​tsbury.
