U9 Lions triumph in
Havant and Waterlooville Tournament

The tournament held on Saturday 17th July comprised of 18 teams and saw Crofton Saints Lions U9’s drawn in a group with Emsworth, Jubilee 77, Hedge End, Horndean & Hawks Community which resulted in three wins and two losses, just enough to narrowly advance to the 1/4 finals as the highest 3rd place team.

In a strange turn of events Crofton ended up playing their 1/4 final against a team from their group, Horndean, whom they had just lost to in the final group game. However, immediately from kick-off you can see that there was a determination about The Lions to gain revenge and they were convincing going on to win 2-0.

Lions then played Fleur De Lys in the semi-final, a team who had coasted through their group winning all of their games and not conceding a goal. A hard fought contest ended nil-nil so the dreaded penalty shootout was going to decide who went through to the final in this one. Crofton advanced to the finals after the penalty’s went to sudden death, winning 4-3.

If the semi final was dramatic then it was nothing compared to what unfolded in the final against Salisbury FC. Salisbury went two nil up but with only minutes left on the clock, two stunning strikes from The Lions, one almost being the last kick of the game, took the game once again to penalties.

The same players volunteered to go again and this time Lions we’re able to win the game in just 3 penalties following some excellent finishes and stops from the Lions goalkeeper.

Crofton Saints Lions claimed the Havant and Waterlooville tournament trophy sending the loyal fans wild! A superb effort from the players on what was the hottest day of the year.

John Norton Memorial Cup Final (2020)
Wednesday 26th May 2021
Cams Alders, Fareham

Our Crofton Saints Adults first team finally triumphed in a cup final when they won on penalties against league winners CJ Glass in the John Norton Memorial Cup on 26th May 2021.

After going behind mid way through the first half from poor marking on a corner, they steadily grew in confidence in the second half and equalised with a stunning top corner strike from Ben Stanley. Both tried but failed to score any further goals so the game finished level at 1-1 and went to penalties.

Uncharacteristically, CJ Glass failed to score from the spot with two being saved and two being missed, and with Crofton having converted two of the three penalties they had taken they couldn't be caught, so ran out 2-0 winners.
