The matches in the provincial finals of the Tymbark Cup are behind us. 95 teams, several hundred young players and the power of emotions – it was a two-day football party in Szczecinek!
The weather was good, the town’s stadium in Szczecinek, charmingly situated by the lake, shone with beautiful sunshine, and a light breeze provided a beneficial respite. Even, green grass, exactly the kind on which the youngest football should be kicked – nothing but play.
– Szczecinek has a beautiful facility, and if there is such a will from the city authorities, we would like to organize here all subsequent provincial tournaments for the Tymbark Cup – says Maciej Mateńko, chairman of the West Pomeranian Football Association.
The organizers from OSiR in Szczecin did well by preparing everything perfectly. The hosts, i.e. the 2011 boys from the Sports Championship Branch of SP5 Szczecinek, also did a good job. In the group they beat rivals from Sławobórz, Niemica and Grzędice. In the quarter-finals, coach Michał Boderek’s team dealt with their peers from Kołobrzeg, and in the semi-finals with the team from Chojna. The final was a tough match with the team from Kliniska (4:2 for SP5 Szczecinek), which previously decided two matches in penalty kicks.
Oh, what emotions they were: the joy and tears of the victors, the cries and tears of the vanquished. But here they were all winners. However, there was only one place in the national final. Young players from OMS SP5 Szczecinek go to Warsaw and repeat the success of their colleagues a year older, who also won the provincial final.
In the final for the U-12 girls, the team from SP Malechowo won 4:0 with the team from PSP Bezrzecze. In the battle for 3rd place, the “three” Myślibórz won, beating SP3 Szczecin 3:1.
An equally fantastic atmosphere – including that in the stands – accompanied the match of the younger generations, who played in Stettin a day later. And here there was no shortage of emotions, tears of emotion and happiness, a series of penalty kicks that decided the trophies. It was those in the U10 category who gave the SP3 team from Myślibórz a pass to the finals, who after a dramatic and even match won over AP Czaplinek.
Buoyed by euphoria, Myślibórz confidently won their yearbook and defeated SP 7 Koszalin in the final, although they were the first to concede a goal. The battle for third place was won by Czaplinek, who defeated SMS Police by a whopping 7:1.
In the younger U8 category, the winners were the players from SP1 Białogard, who won 1:0 with SP51 Szczecin. In the match for 3rd place, SP Malechowo won 3:0 with UKS Tigers Tuczno.
Among the U8 girls, ZS Grzmiąc won, and in the U10 category, the team from Stare Bielice won.
