It is once again with great pride that I can advise you that Arctic Fox ESU representing 1st Felpham at the RN Sea Scouts Soccer 6 competition were able to come home with heads held high after winning the Plate Trophy at HMS Excellent this weekend.
Despite a hard start the team were able to build on their game and entered Sunday in the Semi Final, itself an achievement but their nerve held steady as against tough opposition they were able to win through to the final and win the Plate Trophy.
Next year the aspiration will be to win the Cup that is the Champions league of this tournament.
Whilst this is a team event and our praises must be extended to Jed G, Matt E, Dan E, Jordon D, Dan R and Josh L particular mention must go to Dan R who held his nerve to win through to 2nd place in the penalty shoot out. Those who watch football will know how hard it is for British soccer players to score penalties when under pressure but Dan calmly tore at the net with consistency only too be beaten by one!
As usual the Explorers were a credit to 1st Felpham and Arctic Fox and will be at home now with well earned plaques & awards sitting at pride of place.
WELL DONE GUYS
