In 2016 Brocton FC Under 18 team proved to be a group of talented young footballers who were prepared to work tirelessly to achieve outstanding success. The squad trained twice a week throughout the season to develop their skills and team understanding.
The Staffordshire Youth Cup is the most prestigious competition at Youth level in the County. The team reached the cup final against Uttoxeter town, twice coming back from a goal behind to win 4-2 and take the Trophy to be crowned champions.
The players are still committed to the club and are now still playing at U21 level.
Stafford Apex compete in Division 1 of the 3 division Nuneaton and District League with 67 teams competing from across 10 Midlands Counties. The swimmers, both boys and girls, are ages 9 to 12 years old.
Despite Apex being one of the smallest clubs the swimmers performed exceptionally throughout the season and finished 6th place. They were then invited to compete in the overall 6 team final at Wolverhampton against elite Midlands clubs.
Just getting to the top 6 out of 67 teams is an outstanding achievement that the swimmers and coaches should be incredibly proud of. This success is the culmination of four years hard work to develop the team to this outstanding level.
