It was another encouraging weekend for our youngsters, as our Under-8 side progressed through to the semi-finals of the Watcombe Football Festival.

The U8s made light work of their first five games, remaining unbeaten without conceding a goal. After opening with a scoreless draw with MAP Academy, United then hit the goals trail with 3-0, 1-0, 4-0  and 2-0 victories, secured with goals from Keano, Jude, Sonny and Frankie.

The semi-final saw Torquay fight out an exciting 2-2 draw against WBB, before they bowed out on penalty kicks.

Despite the disappointment, there were plenty of positives to take away, in what was their first tournament of the season.

Well done all involved!
