On Tuesday April 30 and Wednesday May 1, the Somerset Under 14 boys and girls played Round 1 of the ISSA Cup. This competition is run by the Independent Schools Soccer (Football) Association (ISSA), supported by Football Queensland, and proudly sponsored by Uhlsport.
The Uhlsport Cup competition is conducted in two stages:
• A round robin group stage involving groups of up to five teams, with teams progressing to the elimination stage. • An elimination stage (knock-out) leading to the final between the two remaining teams.
The Co-ordinator of football has scouted players from Years 7, 8 and 9 during the APS trainings and games. After nominating 16 boys and 16 girls the Somerset U14 teams are ready to play.
On Tuesday the U14 boys played a very strong Kings Christian College Under 14. Final score was Nil to 7.
On the Wednesday the U14 girls lost with 1 to 4. The boys were coached by Maarten de Kruijf and the Girls by Bronwyn Lee.
The experience to play in Cup Football is fantastic. This will help the players to improve their technical and tactical skills of Football.
