2019 will be the 21st year of the Uhlsport Cup, a competition run by the Independent Schools Soccer Association (ISSA), supported by Football Queensland, and proudly sponsored by Uhlsport. The competition is for players 19 years and under, and will be played in accordance with FIFA rules.
This is the first year that Somerset First XI Girls participating in the cup. Our first game versus All Saints Anglican College was played 2 May. With missing key players Georgia and Serenity, the girls worked hard and played to the best of their ability. All Saints had the luck on their side and scored twice. Somerset scored once. Final score 2 to 1 to All Saints.
The second cup game played at Somerset's Track & Field on 16 May. Emmanuel College travelled from Carrara to Mudgeeraba. Emmanuel had the better start and came on 1 nil. Somerset didn’t give up and that resulted almost in a last-minute equalizer, but the Emmanuel goalkeeper had a great safe.
We will see First XI Girls back next year in the Uhlsport Cup.
Thanks to all parents for supporting the girls during their games.
Round 7 has been played in the Football Gold Coast Miniroos Competition.
The Under 6 had a 5 to 3 victory versus Burleigh. Their passing was good and they showed great teamwork.
Under 7 played at Tally. They showed their passion on the pitch scoring seven goals among them. It was a great game to watch and ended 7 to 4 to Somerset Green.
Somerset Blue played Palm Beach for the third time and came out strong scoring three goals and only conceding two goals. Although they held on, there were some tense moments when we could have scored more.
The Under 9s played versus Southport and put in a great team effort. We can see the players improving week by week. Keep this up! Spartans won 8, Nil.
Good job team! The coaches looking forwards seeing you next week again.
Saturday May 25 all Spartans Football teams play at Track & Field.
