ARMADALE soccer player Keegan Grant was part of the under-13s squad that produced some exciting football at the recent National Youth Championships.

Football West technical manager Cris Ola said WA teams produced some of their best performances at the tournaments in Coffs Harbour.

Ola said both teams had played exceptionally well in finishing second in their Group A competitions.

“Both teams played with a structured build-up and took a proactive approach to defending which produced very good football,” Ola said.

“The under-14s did not lose a game and were the only team to beat the eventual winners Victoria Metro, with a 4-1 victory in the first game.

“Results are not the sole indicator of how well a team performed, but it was pleasing to see that the boys were playing an attractive style and that it was often rewarded.”
