Unusually the award goes to a league. Anyone who has been watching the progress of the Novartis Under 10/11 league has to be impressed. The standard improves week on week.
Asking young players to play the ball out from the back is not easy when the teams have been brought up on mini soccer which demands a long ball game, but these lads are starting to show for the ball, eventually they will make the long ball punt from the goal keeper redundant.
It’s a real treat to watch them, made all the more enjoyable thanks to the number of supporting parents.
