Roaring success for Lions

Lions U7s

The junior section of Alvechurch FC – The Lions – is celebrating several successes at the end of the 2013/14 season.

The Under 7 team (pictured right) completed a fantastic first season in the Central Warwickshire Under 7s League by roaring to victory in the final of the Spring Cup. The lads battled hard on a sunny afternoon and were delighted to lift the trophy in an evenly-matched game. 

Meanwhile, Alvechurch Lions Athletic Under 13s clinched the Central Warwickshire Division 5 title with a stylish 8-3 home win against Shard End. The win capped an excellent season in which the team won an impressive 13 out of 18 league games, lost only two and scored 79 goals.

A key point came six games in to the season when the decision was made to change the team formation, resulting in an eight-game winning streak.

However, the determination and camaraderie of the players were the over-riding factors in creating an environment where the lads could express themselves and play entertaining football. 

The title win was celebrated in style at the final whistle and will long be remembered by the players, supporters and coaches.

Also very close to tasting success were the Under 8s who were losing finalists in their Spring Cup, narrowly beaten 3-2.
