Over the May Whitsun Bank Holiday the under 8’s age group toured to the Camber Championship, at Camber Sands in Sussex.

The boys stayed at Pontins Holiday Camp over the weekend and played nearby on probably some of the best quality pitches available to youth football, at the Turf Farms Brooklands. They had a thoroughly enjoyable time, playing eight games over two days against town & city based clubs and academies from across the south east, namely All Stars Eastbourne, Bexley All Stars, St Margarets Dover, Dynamo United Folkestone and FC Salisbury. Wanderers Cobras achieved fourth place overall, narrowly losing out 2-0 in the third place play off against FC Salisbury City. The highlight of the weekend (apart from the Saturday evening family bar-b-q and drinks!) was the presentation evening, when the boys were presented with their individual trophies and had their photo taken with ex Southampton and England International Matt Le Tissier.

The weekend was a real credit to the boys, who played in mixed ability teams throughout the weekend, and whose attitude and behaviour was exemplary from beginning to end.
