Over the weekend 7 Panthers and 7 Panthers Dads toured Minehead.

The Panthers played brilliantly throughout the weekend and went unbeaten throughout Saturday and won 2 out of three games on the Sunday.

Louis ‘the Comedian’ Beesley attended and played the Saturday in goal starting many moves with his quick thinking. He deservedly scored a lovely goal on Sunday when he was relieved of goalkeeping duties to terrorize defenders.

Josh ‘Smasher’ Mason started the Saturday on the right side of midfield nearly scoring a goal in the first game of the weekend. He later in the tournament reverted to the right side of defence. He made several telling challenges and looked comfortable on the ball, even surging forward from the back to create a goal on Sunday.

Sam ‘Scotty’ Scott showed his endeavour and class in every game, creating opportunities for others and stopping opposition attacks in their tracks. A tireless performance throughout with some rocket shots to boot one of which nearly decapitated an opposition goalie.

George ‘the Warrior’ Whitehouse took some big knocks during the weekend but carried on giving his all in each and every game. He looked a real danger out on the wing taking players on at will. A dangerous corner he crossed in also lead directly to a goal which was put into his own net by an opposition defender. He also scored from a ridiculously acute angle.

Josh ‘Mr Consistent’ Reynolds was as consistent as ever, breaking up attacks and playing neat football in the middle of midfield. He has such great vision that he sees passes so quickly that it creates space and time for others.

Ben ‘Whizza’ Herrington scored four goals, including a hat-trick in one game and was the winner of the tournament’s golden ball for a 20-yard strike. All of this despite going over on his ankle before a ball was kicked. A brilliant display of attacking football and didn’t look too bad at the back either. Congratulations Whizza on your award.

Ashton ‘Goals’ Cooper won the Wyrley Panthers player of the tournament for his outstanding displays. He ran himself into the ground and chased every ball for the team. He looked dangerous with the ball and scored a total of 3 goals, hitting the post twice and having a legitimate goal disallowed. Performances well worthy of his award.

Well done to all those who attended, you did all of us proud!
