Under 15’s Win International Tournament

Rotterdam TournamentAFC Liverpool’s Under 15’s today won the CVV Zwervers International Tournament held in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.

The Dutch club have been hosting youth tournaments since 1993, which have become well respected and have attracted youth teams from the likes of Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, PSV Eindhoven and Ajax among many others.

This year’s Under 15’s tournament saw CVV Zwervers in Group A alongside Feyenoord, Sporting Lokeren and Excelsior Rotterdam. AFC Liverpool were in Group B with Alexandria 66, Sparta Rotterdam and RBC Roosendaal.

The Reds kicked of their tournament with a 2-0 win over Alexandria 66 with the goals coming from Nial and Gerard. They then followed that up with a 1-0 win over RBC Roosendaal, with a late goal from Gerard claiming the win. The lads then made sure they topped the group unbeaten with a 1-0 win against Sparta Rotterdam with the only goal coming from Callum.

In the final they faced Sporting Lokeren and Declan’s goal was enough to give the lads victory against the Belgian side to give Joe Wright’s team their first international success.

Massive congratulations to all of the lads as well as Joe. You’re a credit to the club and you’ve all done AFC Liverpool proud.
