Over the weekend, South Melbourne’s Under U11s team clinched the Gold Coast Champions Cup.
The team was comprised of five Under 10s and nine Under 11s who played exceptionally well, and fulfilled their ambitions by defeating the Rochdale Rovers 3-1 in the Grand Final last Saturday morning. What makes this achievement even more memorable was the fact, the side had played its round of quarter final, semi final, and grand final matches within the space of a 24 hour period. With their success in clinching the Gold Coast Champions Cup, South Melbourne FC became only the fifth Victorian club to win this prestigious tournament, which has been held for the last 15 years, with a number of international clubs from across the world participating.
South Melbourne FC would like to congratulate the team on their fantastic achievement.
