Arsenal BC (Glasgow) U19s last week won the 2011 Glasgow City Cup 10th anniversary Tournament, this after a fortnight before the squad winning the 2011 Rangers F.C. International Youth trophy, giving them a double before the season has even started.
Whe you add these two cups to the 2010 U17 West Regional Cup success and the 2010 U17 Blackpool Easter Cup. Along with the 2011 U19 G.A.D.Y.F.L. Sunday league title, the 2011 U19 Blackpool Easter Cup and the fair play trophy for the same tournament, it all adds up to something very special for the club and it's players.
Last season the team did not have a single suspension, nor did it recieve a red card, or many yellow cards, it shows what a well disciplined team can achieve.
We are very proud of this team, and in the 20 years that I have been involved in youth football, it is certainly the most dedicated and deserving group of players, that I have had the pleasure of working with.
Magnificent 7? I'd rather call it a magnificent team.
Yours in Sport
