The Northwich Juniors U10’s entertained the Chicago Nationals from the USA in a gripping friendly at the Charles Darwin Primary School on Saturday 27th July. The Chicago Nationals are a team of academy juniors made up from the state of Illinois from the ages of 10 – 13 years therefore the Northwich U10’s represented themselves fantastically well considering the slight age gap between the two teams.
The friendly comprised of two 45 minutes matches which the Chicago Nationals just edged out the Juniors in what were two very entertaining games. At the end of the fixture, Northwich Captain, Joshua Egerton presented our new friends with a glass handshake trophy and medals for the team as a thank-you and friendship between the two clubs. The Chicago Nationals moved onto Birmingham before playing their final friendly in London in midweek before returning home on Wednesday.
