Last Sunday, over 150 boys from fifteen different United Synagogue communities participated in Tribe’s annual Football Frenzy tournament. Split into two groups, years 7 and 8 competed in one tournament and years 9 and 10 in a second.
With the weather holding up beautifully, the standard of play was very high and a number of matches had to be decided on penalties.
After the initial group stages, the teams progressed to knockout rounds. The eventual winner for the years 7-8 tournament was Mill Hill who beat Edgware 2–0 and in the years 9-10 tournament, Hampstead Garden Suburb beat Hendon 5–0.
Hugo Davidson, Manager of the victorious HGSS team in the years 9-10 tournament said:
“We won every match without conceding any goals on the way to the final. We stuck to our Italian style of football and it paid off. Thanks to Tribe for organising such a great tournament.”
Jake, Goal Keeper for HGSS, winners of the years 9-10 tournament added:
