Under 8’s Ulverston Tournament

by LCJFC

under8Lancaster City Juniors FC Uunder 8's were runners up in the recent Ulverston Tournament on 12 June. On a very busy afternoon of football the boys faced some familiar teams from the Lancaster district as well as several teams from Cumbria.

They were undefeated in open play, winning 4 of their pool games and drawing one, which meant they qualified first from their group. Their semi-final opponents were Hawcoat Park. A draw after extra-time led to a a very tense penalty shoot-out where LCJ eventually emerged victors. The final, against Whitehaven Tigers, also resulted in a draw after extra-time and another penalty shoot-out, which we unfortunately lost. The boys were a credit to the club and showed so much spirit all day, particularly given that we had no subs.

We were all so proud of them. Well done!

Bispham Tournament

tournamentA big well done to our Under 11/12's team that took part in the recent end of season tournament at Bispham. One of the most popular tournaments in the area attracting well over 140 teams. We were in luck with the weather, glorious weather all day. With the suncream and water been on over load! The team were in there change tshirts of yellow which wasnt a bad idea as there were two teams in our group with similar colour tops. Despite the blistering conditions the boys gave there all and played there hearts out with smiles on there faces, with some great team work during the games. The results didnt matter on the day, as the tournaments are a wind down and abit of fun for us after a season, with the last game players drawing positions out of a hat and most people out of position they all had a laugh doing it.

A big thank you to everyone at Bispham for another fantastic tournament and we look forward to coming back next year!

The under 8/9s are in tournament action next as they head to the Ulverston Tournament on sunday 12th June. This is another hugely popular tournament and we wish them good luck and to enjoy themselves.

Community Support

by LCJFC

The club would like to that the whole community for the support they have shown after our goal posts were broken beyond repair. Kind words from many of the public, The Bay adding a news article to there website and included in there radio bulletins and also to the Lancaster Guardian for publicising a piece in the paper. This has all helped raise the awareness of the damage that has occured and also to show that acts like this will not be tolerated in the future.

fgh-security-companiesA big thank you must go to FGH Security Ltd, who out of the blue donated a massive £790 to the fund, all managers, committee members and parents cannot thank you enough for your donation and ensuring the kids have somewhere to play there football matches and also there is somewhere for the community to have a kick about.

Once the new nets are up and in place we plan to organise a football match with FGH to thank them all for there support.

Goal Post Vandalism

by LCJFC

imageUnfortunately over the weekend our full size goals situated on the Giant Axe were vandalised beyond repair. A group of kids were seen swinging on the goals and as a result snapped the crossbar in half and ripped the top of the posts off. These have had to now be removed from the field as they were a danger to the public walking dogs or playing on the field.

We as a club are deeply upset about this and now have to try and replace these meaning that it will come at a great cost as these goals are not cheap to replace or get reset in the ground.

To help us out we have set up a 'Go Fund Me' page which is going to be used to help replace the goals if anyone can spare a couple of quid it would be greatly appreciated.
