Grange Park hosts U13s Tournament


​Over the swelteringly hot weekend of June 17th-18th 2017 Grange Park hosted an 11 a side tournament for U13s. Six teams took part in a league format. KDR were represented by the U13s Whites and Blues teams. From the Harrogate League we welcomed teams from Ripon, Whinmoor and Wiggington, and a team from Ryton and Crawcrook, who​ made the trek down the A1 from the Gateshead area. It was the boys from the North East who finished the weekend at the top of the league, with five wins from five games. KDR Whites were runners up, with four wins


The most eagerly awaited contest from the club's viewpoint was the clash between the Whites and Blues. The Whites avenged their defeat in the previous month's friendly with a 2-0 win. Quinn Garrity opened the scoring from the penalty spot. Taylor Maxwell almost equalised for the Blues just after half time but saw his shot bounce off the woodwork. A Keenan Park goal sealed the win for the Whites.
