COBRA B under-eights were invited to attend the John Rixon Memorial tou-rnament at Red-bridge Football Club, and did not dis-appoint as they wal-ked away with the trophy.

Cobra opened up their campaign against Byron A, who went on to win 2-0, but Cobra perform-ed a lot better against Byron D in their second match, winning 2-0 with a double by Akpo Abutoh, putting them into the semi-finals.

The semi-final was played against Byron B and in a tight game the match went to penalties.

In a best of three shoot-out, both sides missed all their kicks and in sudden death, Byron B missed their penalty, giving Lewis Willson the chance to score and become a hero.

Willson strode for-ward and planted the ball into the net securing Cobra's passage to the final.

Facing Byron A it was an excellent chance to gain both revenge and glory. In a best of five match Cobra ran out 3-0 winners as Willson, Thomas Woolman and Bailee Slater secured the trophy for Cobra.

Cobra: Willson, Buckland, Lucas, Slater, Woolman, Abutoh, Sach, Randall, Jones, Bergum.
