Brooke Adventurers Youth Football Club has been running now for around 20 years, the Club is Sponsored by St Peters Church Brooke and Lynn Chapman our Vicar is The Chairwoman. We are in the Norfolk Christian League and have been since the League was formed over 20 years ago. We currently have between 55 and 60 Children registered with us to play from the age of 8 to 16 Years old. We are a really friendly Club with some Fantastic Coaches and helpers and a brilliant network of Supporters.
This season has probably been the Adventurers best Season ever.
All four of our teams managed to get to their respective Cup Finals,first time this has ever been achieved.
The Under 10s had a great season,they started off the year winning the First two 5 a side round Robin tournaments held inside during the winter,there league age group doesn't doesn't award points at this stage,but had they been given points they would have been fairly high up in their league.
They won the U10s Trophy Final in a really hard fought game against Old Catton 2 - 1 and lifted the Cup in front of a very large crowd.Then in the Season end 5 a side they made the semifinals(they won it last year).
A big well done goes out to Benny Brown and his coaching staff for all their hard work during the season.
The Under 12s also had a brilliant season,they finished Second in their league just being pipped to the title by Stoke Utd in a very hard fought league.It came down to the last game of the season.
The Cup was a different story,Brooke beating Stoke 3-0 in a very commanding fashion to pick up the award.
They didn't finish there,at the season end 5 aside tournament they triumphed again making it 3 years in a row of winning this event.So another 2 more trophies for Brooke.
Great effort by all,and a massive thanks to Carl Mayhew and his coaching staff for all their hard work.
The Under 14s had a strong season as well.They also finished Runners up in their league behind Heartsease Whites who are a very strong team.They also made the Cup Final but after a hard fought game against Heartsease lost 3-1.
All was not lost though as Brooke picked up the very Prestigious FairPlay trophy,this is won with points picked up during the season and awarded by the other teams to do with sportsmanship,attitude,behaviour etc.The league look upon this Cup being as important as winning the League or Cup so a big well done to the boys.
Another big thank you goes out to Mike Liggins and his coaching staff for all their great efforts.Mike is taking a sabbatical next season to recharge his batteries perhaps till the season after?Thanks Mike for what you have done from all at the Club.
Lastly we finish with the U16s.
This has been the best ever season for the U16s,doing the League and Cup Double.
They won the league with 2 games to go after being Undefeated in 13 of the 14 League Games.After 19 years of being in the league the U16s had never won it until now!
They also made the Cup Final for the first time and triumphed in that beating our arch rivals ENYP 4-1 in a very hard fought game which went to extra time.They put the win down to the extra cheering from our U12s who came to add vocal support in the extra time,and stormed the pitch at the end.The League and Cup double is a great success.
Big thanks Rob Dixon and David Mead for all their efforts with the U16s.
The Christian league committee congratulated Brooke on all their achievements this season at their recent A.G.M.
Let's hope for another Great Season starting in September.
