Wots Up Warriors Mar 2019

Sides take part in Regional semi-finals

SUFFOLK had two representatives in the regional semi-finals of the FA People's Cup.

THE Wots Up Warriors and Waveney disability teams represented Suffolk in their first regional semi-finals of the national FA People's Cup tournament.

Both teams were entered into the Championship division of the tournament after finishing first and second respectively in the Suffolk qualifying tournament.

Both teams had nine fixtures spread over the afternoon, all to be played on an excellent surface in Bedford with good weather thrown in as well.

Wots Up Warriors (pictured above) started off nervously and were maybe overwhelmed by the occasion, losing the first game 2-0 to Cambridge City.

The second fixture straight after was a classy 2 -0 win against Everett Rovers thanks to a precise free kick from Jack and a fierce bending strike from Niall.

A 2-0 defeat at the hands of Prospect United followed but was then quickly forgotten thanks to a superb 3-0 win against Smiles Titans, with three well-worked and well-taken goals by Alex, Jack and Niall.

A 1-1 draw followed with Dale scoring after a solo run before slotting home but the Warriors were unable to hold on for the win.

The last four fixtures all ended in defeat with Wots Up Warriors not scoring in any of the games.

Lee Smith, who runs the team, said: “This was a well-organised event at a superb venue, food and drinks available as well as a bar, changing rooms, and warm up area. All refs were excellent and the behaviour and attitude from all teams present was magnificent.

“It was a real honour to be part of this and a fine achievement by Wots Up Warriors to get this far in only their second season.”

Waveney, meanwhile, won three, drew one and lost five of their matches, but manager Bob McCartney said he was proud of their efforts.
