WHITEGROVE FC Under 12s were crowned Berks & Bucks FA County champions following a 7-5 success against Mavericks recently.

The match was played at a blistering pace with both sides showing skill, flair and desire.

The first goal was scored by Mavericks, but Whitegrove quickly recovered and at the end of the first half they were 4-2 in front.

The second half was extremely tense for the Bracknell-based club’s supporters, as Mavericks came out all guns blazing, moving the ball extremely well.

They scored three goals in quick succession to put themselves ahead at 5-4, but despite going behind for the third time in the game, Whitegrove continued to battle and showed their quality by finishing the game with three more goals to win 7-5.

Whitegrove will now progress through to the FA Regional Finals next month. If they win those, then they will compete in the FA National Youth Futsal Cup.
