THETFORD Independents U8 completed a very successful first season with a journey to Leicester City's Walker Stadium to compete in the invitation-only Topps Tiles national six-a-side competition.

THETFORD Independents U8 completed a very successful first season with a journey to Leicester City's Walker Stadium to compete in the invitation-only Topps Tiles national six-a-side competition.

Competing against some of the best teams in the country, Indies produced a series of excellent performances to fight their way through to the final.

Playing against a team from Liverpool, in a 35,000 seat stadium, with over a thousand spectators, Indies held their nerve in a close game to draw 0-0.

The game went into extra time and with either team looking capable of grabbing the result it was the Liverpool team which clinched the game with a couple of late goals. Although disappointed not to win, the boys had a great day out at the Walker Stadium and would like to thank Topps Tiles and, in particular, Cara and the staff at the Thetford branch for their support.
