This past weekend saw the Ashford Town Junior Championships 2013 take place, where the club hosted over 50 teams for its annual junior tournament.

The weekend was a fantastic success, with over 450 players taking part and great fun was had by all, with many teams congratulating the club on its hospitality over the two days.

The club also had great success on the pitch through many of the age groups performing superbly. We had two winning teams, throughout the six competitions and also had the extremely rare but tremendous occurrence where we had two of our Ashford Town teams playing each other in the two finals that we won, beating all the other competing teams in the competition on route to an All Ashford final.

Congratulations then go to the Under 12s teams managed by Kevin Baxter and Conor Moody & Mitchell Fountain, who were the competing teams in the Under 12s final, with Kevin’s team winning a thrilling match that went to a Golden Goal Extra time winner.

The other winning age group were our Under 14s who managed by Nick Bailey, managed to overcome all the other teams by getting both their teams to the final.

Other teams that performed well over the weekend were the Under 11s, who were narrowly beaten in the final, and also to our Girls team who managed to make a semi final appearence, in what was the first ever girls tournament to take place at Ashford Town.

Overall, a great weekend for the club, made even better by the sunshine weather, but also by the volunteers who made the event happen. This epitomises the strength that the club is in presently, with over 40 people within the club giving up their entire weekend and working tirelessly to ensure the tournament could run without a single problem.
