If the season finished today it would have been a very good season for the Academy, with all teams playing their part in making this the best year the Academy has had since its formation. However there are still a few weeks to go and during the next month we are in the remarkable position of contesting three Cup Finals with our Under 18’s, Under 15’s and our Under 14 B teams all due to appear at Springfield. Indeed our Under 16’s have already secured their Cup winners medals having won the Alec Scott Trophy in an outstanding win over St Clements. Our Under 14 A team also reached the semi final of the Brian Beckett Trophy before going out in a hard fought contest.
The Under 18’s and Under 15’s are also competing to lift the league titles in their respective divisions.
To win these 3 Cups and both league titles will be an extremely difficult task but it is a fantastic challenge and of course, it is possible. If we were to achieve all or even the majority of these titles it would turn this best ever season into an incredible and memorable one. Everyone associated with St Peter would be extremely proud, lifting morale and giving us real momentum going into the Upton and the 2016/17 season.
Make no mistake we have some very fine footballers at this club, talent that is spread throughout the age groups. Can I please urge everyone associated with St Peter FC to come out and support these youngster’s. See for yourselves, the outstanding talent that is blossoming before our eyes.
