As our Summer Holiday Provision coming to an end, we hosted an end of Summer celebration at BS14 Youth Club!
This week, Young Bristol hosted an Interclub Summer Celebration! We had senior and junior teams from across our club network that joined up to compete in a football tournament. We then went on to host a BBQ in BS14’s new wellbeing garden!
The day brought together young people from Ashton Vale Club for Young People, BS14 Stockwood Youth Club, Hartcliffe Club for Young People and The Grove @ Bedminster Down. Young people even played against a local team of PCSO’s.
We started the morning by getting the teams together at the Stockwood Wanderers ground. A huge thank you to the team at Stockwood Wanderers for letting us use your pitches to host this activity!
The Interclub football tournament then began with the 9 teams playing each other in a round robin format. Each game had a large group of supporters cheering them on from the sideline. While teams were playing, our other teams practiced their footballing skills on the surrounding pitches.
After a long day of playing football, we brought everyone together to announce our finalists! The junior finals put Ashton Vale and BS14 head to head. The senior finals had Hartcliffe and The Grove playing against each other. Both our finals resulted in a penalty shoot-out! Tensions were high, with some amazing saves from our goal keepers and some great shots from the young people.
After two tense penalty shoot outs, Ashton Vale were awarded the junior trophy. Hartcliffe were then awarded the Senior trophy. Congratulations to both teams!
After the final game was over, we went on to the presentation. The referee gave the winners medals and a trophy! The trophies will be engraved with the winning clubs name and displayed in the club!
Well done to all of our young people for taking part. We would like to thank all of the teams for showing great sportsmanship and playing so well! It was great to see them interact with young people from different clubs and making new friends.
