THERE was heartache for Bedfont Green U15s last weekend when they made it to the final of two tournaments, only to fall at the last hurdle both times.
On Saturday they made the long trip to Petersfield in Hampshire for a six-a-side event, losing the final to Shoreham after having a player dismissed. Earlier, they scraped through the group as best third-placed team, before beating a strong Worthing side 3-2 in the quarter-finals and Purbrook 2-0 in the semis.
Bradley Jones netted four goals on the day and Jimmy Hamlet notched three, while there was one each for Ben Stamps, Darren Butler and Lewis Martinho. Scott Allingham and Dale Clements made up the team.
The following day, Green's U15s entered two teams into the Camberley Town Five-a-side Tournament and both qualified from the group stages.
In the quarter-finals the A side knocked out Feltham Blues thanks to two goals from Hamlet and a Jones strike, while the Bs beat Finchampstead 10-9 in a penalty shoot-out.
That meant an all-Bedfont Green semi-final, which the As edged with two more goals from Hamlet, cancelling out Jordan Hart's opener. Green dominated the final but paid for missed chances when Headley Youth broke out to score a last-minute winner.
The U10 Royals also made it to the final of the Kingstonian tournament, beating Tooting & Mitcham 3-0 in the semis thanks to a Dean Martin hat-trick, before losing to Corinthian Casuals in the final.
The U9 Youth's run of eight successive finals came to end at Camberley Town, where they lost in the semis, having finished top of their group before knocking out the hosts in the quarter-finals with a Ryan Couch strike. But they lost their semi-final to Mytchett Athletic on penalties. Couch got another goal, while Charlie Sumpter bagged three and Kyle Carton grabbed one.
Elsewhere, the U9 Colts made the quarter-finals at Delaford Colts before losing on penalties, and it was the same story for the U11 Colts at Elm Grove and the U10 Colts at Woodley Saints.
