Atletico Walbottle Under 8's have had a tough start to the season as they find their feet. Playing 4 games in the league, they have drawn 1 and lost 3. All the players in the team are new to football and using their season openers to gain valuable match experience. At this age focus is less on the results and more on the players' enjoyment of playing football.
The pre-season tournament hosted by Walbottle Junior Football Club ran without a glitch. This is the first time Walbottle JFC have hosted an event and due to the success it will hopefully be the first of many. Atletico unfortunately got knocked out of their group finishing 3rd overall.
Check the team in action wearing their new kit. I am sure you will agree how smart they all look.
