- Deserved promotion for rampant Hurricanes!!
U10 Hurricanes will now play in 'Blue' Division 2!
After six straight wins at the beginning of the season, the U10 Beechfield Hurricanes have been deservedly promoted from the 'Yellow' Division 3 to the 'Blue' Division 2 of the Salford and Districts Football League.
The Hurricanes have played 6, won 6, scored 30 and conceded just 4 (with 4 clean sheets for 'keeper Oliver Dalton-Bunker) since the beginning of the season! It's been a real team effort too, with 6 different players earning Man of the Match trophies. All 10 outfield players have appeared in every match so far, and 9 different players have contributed with goals (although Alfie Rostron's personal tally of 16 goals, having scored in all 6 games, is particularly impressive!)
The Hurricanes celebrated their promotion in style, straight after the home win against Maccabi, with a special trophy to recognise their achievements held aloft by captain Oliver Hall. Every player received a medal to acknowledge their individual efforts, and the team celebrated in front of their coaches, parents and families with confetti cannons in club colours.
The Hurricanes will now face teams like Barr Hill Diamonds, Barr Hill Hearts, Boothstown Falcons, Deans Sports, Moorside Rangers Yellow, Flixton Juniors Lions, Stretford Victoria Panthers, De La Salle Red and Beechfield Tornadoes.
Manager Ben Robinson said: "I'm extremely proud of the team's effort and determination It was great to all get together and applaud the team for their hard work and announce we are being promoted to Division 2. They deserve to be playing at a higher level and I am very confident we will challenge any team, and prove to be a hard test in any upcoming Division 2 fixtures".
The Hurricanes' promotion-winning squad was: Oliver Dalton-Bunker, Fabio Figueiredo, Alfie Rostron, Amaan Khan, Oliver Williams, Oliver Hall, Henry Errington, Dillan Caldwell, Jamie Maher, Daniel Robinson and Joshua Whitehead.
