It has been yet another successful season for the MK City Lions U16’s team. One that has seen them reach the County Cup Semi-Finals and win the League Cup and League Double.
This is no small part down to the dedication of each player, parent and staff involved in the team, each subsequently working hard to achieve the goal of developing with continued success. It has seen trials and tribulations throughout with the usual changing of the guard; players leaving; players coming in; coaching changes, all for the eventual good of the team, having learned valuable lessons along the way. With lots of things to distract the young team this year in an important year of their lives off of the pitch, the players should take great pride in how well they have developed, to have come back for adversity to win what was at their disposal in the last two games of the season, against a tough Waterhall Stars U16’s side.
The continued success of the young MK side is a great sentiment to the work put in by manager Steve Farmborough and the players and people around him.
This begs the question: what next for such a talented group of young men? Well after the recent successes, it’s time to turn their attention to the next project that will best meet the player’s needs for a challenge and propel them into the highest level they can likely achieve. With that in mind an announcement will be made in the coming weeks to end all doubts.
Steve himself saying:
Hopefully the decision will reflect our seriousness in regards to keeping most of our players together to take them further through their development. Some will make their own decisions to take different paths, however that is football, we are looking to keep progressing as much as possible as a team and will sit down to discuss the appropriate steps in making this happen.
