All of the Trafford FC Warriors worked exceptionally hard throughout the Power League cup and really deserved to get all the way to the final and then go on to win. In our first two games that got us into the Semi Final we all believed we could go all the way and the lads showed this with two great team performances and two great wins. These two games showed me how far Trafford FC Warriors had come in such a short amount of time as a team and how much they were all improving their game individually and collectively.
What made this cup run even better was the unity shown by all the players and parents to really come together to help push us on which I think was vital in our success and really gave us the platform to win the remainder of the games. Despite going behind in the Semi Final the lads never stopped believing that they could get back into it and did just that with a superb free kick which was greeted with a huge roar from the Trafford FC parents. We then conceded a penalty late on in the game when the result could've quite easily gone either way and our Goalkeeper produced a great save to keep us in the lead. What impressed me most about the lead up to the penalty was the belief shown from our subs who assured our keeper he could make the save and never doubted his team mate. We then went on to win the Semi Final.
On the day of the final all the players were nervous because they all wanted to win so badly but we had a great chat before kick-off about how far we had come in such a short amount of time and how immensely proud they should be of themselves and each other. That final was by far the best I had seen Trafford FC Warriors play and not a single player let their effort levels drop and all continued to fight and push on until the final whistle. When the final whistle came all the lads had given it their all and produced a great win and performance but still had the energy to do a few laps of the pitch in celebration. It was very pleasing to see how many Friends and Family had come to watch the final and support the lads win, lose or draw and how happy they all was to see Trafford FC warriors win.
