Milton Nomads Under-8s won the SCI Brean Sands Youth Football Tourmament for the second year running.

Milton Nomads Under-8s took part in the annual SCI Brean Sands Youth Football Tournament and reigned victorious, winning the cup for the second year running.

The tournament is one of the UK’s longest running youth football festivals. Since SCI launched the event way back in 1994, more than 1,800 teams have participated in this prestigious event.

Milton Nomads Under-8s picked up 21 points over the weekend of competition football, which took place at Drove Road playing fields. The budding professional footballers finished five points clear to win the cup again this year.

Head coach Brendan Saunders said: “I couldn’t be prouder of the boys, the red team have been unbeaten all league season and now to see them win this prestigious tournament two years running is truly fantastic.

“All the boys’ hard work in training and the dedication from myself and assistant coaches Dave Thorne and Mark Stainer is really paying off. I can’t wait to see what next year has in store for this talented group of boys.”

Milton Nomads consistent success has secured them sponsorship from Bristol Audi on jackets and AJ’s Karting (Weston) on both training and match kits.

The team is to grow from a five-a-side to a seven-a-side team next season and is looking for a goalkeeper and two or three outfield players.

Any interested parties should contact Rebecca Saunders to arrange an informal trial on 07710 637917.
