13 Jun WWSET EDA and Reading FC Contest Tour Series Tournament
This past May half term, the football season culminated with both the Europa League and Champions League finals. Also, the final round of the Tour Series Tournament between WWSET Elite Development Academy and Reading FC came to a conclusion.
The Tour Series Tournament began to provide an element of competition within the positive learning environment that the elite and development fixture programme offers. Further stretching and challenging the players against talented opposition with four events during October/February/April & June school holidays.
WWSET EDA provided both an Elite and a Development squad, whilst Reading FC provided an Academy Shadow squad and an Elite squad with all clubs entering groups from U8-U13. Each age group offered entertaining and challenging rounds of fixtures, with 4 rounds taking place over the academic year. With every round that passed, the fixtures grew in quality and entertainment value, fantastic work from all those involved!
For each round of fixtures, the scoring system was the same; all teams played each other once. The winning team from the round earned 10 points, second place earned 6 points, third place earned 4 points, and fourth place earned 2 points. The points from each round were carried over to the next, until the final scores were calculated amongst each age group.
We are pleased to announce that the winners of each age group’s Tour Series Tournament are:
U8 – Wycombe Wanderers Elite
U9 – Wycombe Wanderers Elite
U10 – Wycombe Wanderers Elite
U11 – Wycombe Wanderers Elite
U12 – Wycombe Wanderers Elite
U13 – Wycombe Wanderers Elite
Congratulations all players & squads involved, in what was a hugely successful tour series tournament, giving both coaches and players a positive environment to stretch and challenge themselves. We are all looking forward to next season’s event.
