Spartans Football entered Under 9 and Under 10 teams to the Premier Invitational in the holidays.

Both age groups were dealt a tough draw on Day 1 and were headed to fourth place in the group. The highlight from Day 1 was playing against advanced football clubs, which is great for development and experience. At these tournaments we play against Football Clubs and Football Academies at a higher level than school football competitions.

For Day 2 and 3 the Under 9 and Under 10 were placed in the Plate competition.

For the Under 9, Day 2 of the competition saw the Spartans efforts rewarded with some impressive performances against Magic United. Some exciting build-up plays led to great goals. Relentless pressure from defence ensured Somerset held on, to walk away with their first wins. Looking to continue their fine form into Day 3, the boys fell just short, going down to Tallebudgera 3 to 1 in the tournament’s final game. Despite the result, the Spartans final game rounded off a positive three days of Football, with noticeable improvement from start to finish.

For the Under 10, Day 2 was the perfect group for our team to show our skills to all spectators. The side's teamwork led to great results and end first in the group.
Day 3 we versed the other Plate group winners. A spectacular quarter final against Corinthians was followed by a loss in the semi-final against Gold Coast Knights. We played a third game versus Palm Beach to decide the overall ranking. Out of a total of 40 football teams, our Spartans ended 27th.
Seeing other Somerset Students playing for their own football clubs was great to see. Zhander Griffiths and Harper Loon, Oliver Moir and Knox Black at Gold Coast United, Evie-May Coates at Gold Coast Knights and Alex Pourre at Robina City.

The tournament proved to be a valuable learning experience for all involved and one the coaches were immensely proud to be a part of. The boys displayed tenacity when faced with adversity and created a positive team culture for years to come.
