Epsom & Ewell Beaver and Cub Scout Football

9 of our Beavers and 5 of our cubs entered this year into the annual district Epsom & Ewell Football competition. The competition was last month held up at the Nescot playing fields.

The Beavers play a 7-a-side tournament. The rules of the game are slightly different from normal football. There are no throw ins and the penalty area is only for the goalie. It allows kids of all levels to give football a try.  It doesn’t matter if the Beavers have any experience of football for them to have a go. We certainly did that. Thanks to our Beaver parent volunteers; referee, Chris, and our Manager for the Beavers, Peter, who organised the children and made sure that everyone had a turn and some fun.

Eloise, was our captain’s ‘man if the match’ for her amazing goal saving skills!

The rain didn’t stop play and the kids all had a fabulous time.

Cub Football Team

Our cubs played in the afternoon and did an awesome job. Thanks again to our parent volunteers; Enzo, our ref, and Neil, our manager for supporting the cubs.  Well done guys!

The level of play went up a bit with the cubs. We had three players who all play for local teams. The girls made an awesome duo in defense.
