Darlington Under 6s play in their first tournament!
Darlington Youth’s new team, the Under 6s, have just taken part in their first tournament – and thoroughly enjoyed it!
The youngsters, looking the part in their Darlington Building Society shirts, travelled to Redheugh with their parents for a round robin tournament against seven other teams, and had a great time.
Lee Nicholson, the chairman of Darlington Youth FC, said; “They played in a mini round robin tournament, and played against three other clubs on Redheugh’s 3G surface. They probably had about an hour’s football in that time.
“There are more tournaments coming up soon, and it would be great to have more players interested. We would love to form a second team at under 6 level. They play five a side until the age of 9, when teams are seven-a-side.”
As part of the structure, the club has now appointed Matty Pennal as a “Go to” person for the teams up to Under 9. Matty will help coaches, players and parents with any queries they have.
If you want to start playing for Darlington Youth FC at any level, then contact Lee on 07950 471331.
We’re sure that all Darlo fans will wish the Under 6s all the best in their football careers!
