Slazenger U12s played in the latest tournament and produced some excellent performances.
The programme was shortened to a four matches because of the school holidays.
Slazenger held their first opponents Normandy Park B to a creditable 0-0 draw, given that the opposition had borrowed several players from their A team.
The team had to battle hard with Danny Perry and the rest of the Slazenger midfield putting in a lot of effort.
York B were not quite of the same standard as Normanby but there were still chances at both ends with goalkeeper Adam Davis and defender Thomas Kent making saves before Jack Kitchen netted for Slazenger.
Next followed Chapeltown with nothing to split the two teams with Jack Barras going close for Slazenger.
Chapeltown scored the only goal with a well-taken shot.
The final game was against the strongest side in the group, Thirsk, which ended in a goalless draw after some resolute defending.
Worthy of a special mention are Jenson Brook, Tom Logan and Isaac Fisher, who not only played all the Slazenger games but played three matches for Normanby, who were short of players.
