1st July 2023 showcased another MAMT for the U16 girls in Birmingham just 9 months after the previous one. A warm Saturday with lots of promise of nail biting games and great food was awaiting participants from various Jamaats.
All the girls showed amazing sportsmanship, akhlaq and competitive spirit and the matches were fast paced with some excellent goals/shots scored in all games. The girls demonstrated great team play and development cementing the fact that the pandemic has not deterred their sporting spirit at all! Alhamdullilah, Stanmore brought home wins in all bar one category as follows:
Football 8-9: Stanmore Turtles; Runners Up: Hyderi Hearts (4-3)
Football 10-12: Masoomin Eagles; Runners Up: Stanmore Lobsters (2-3)
Football 13-15: Stanmore Stingrays; Runners Up: Masoomin Hawks (6-0)
Netball 10-12: Stanmore Refreshers; Runners Up: Masoomin Fireflies (4-1)
Netball 13-15: Stanmore Starbursts; Runners Up: MK Mavericks (6-5)
The tournament was played in great spirit with everyone enjoying themselves, making new friendships both adults and children alike. The games were nail biting with two football finals going to penalties and one netball final going to a golden goal.
We would like to thank COEJ and Masoomin Sports Club (Birmingham) for putting a great event together for the girls. Thank you to our coaches; Asiya, Benazir, Fatma, Fi and Mary for coaching the girls with enthusiasm and passion not only for MAMT but throughout the year.
