Having clinched their first Dorset Learning Centres Six-a-Side crown back in May ‘17, a very similar DLC line-up enjoyed more success as they emerged victorious from the inaugural Indoor Soccer Sixes event held at the Osprey Leisure Centre, Portland in November ‘17.
Only six Year 11 players represented the Centre (two others kindly helped out the Sherborne Learning Centre, who were short) – Brandon Anderson, Tom Miller, Dan Saul, Jake Brown, James Dobson and captain Corban Brooks – in a three-team round-robin event with SLC and the Forum, Blandford, each team played each other two times.
DLC made a blistering start by thumping the Forum 5-0 in the opening game and then, unsurprisingly, overwhelmed the opposition on three further occasions thus winning all four and finding the net 15 times for the loss of just 2 goals over the morning.
Despite there only being three teams present all the players and staff thoroughly enjoyed the morning. We look forward to other sports events on the horizon beginning, on Thursday 8th March ‘18, with a table tennis tournament again at Osprey.
The Dorchester team will now turn their attention to defending their Six-a-Side title at the Redlands 3G Astro pitches on Tuesday 20th March ‘18 where it is expected that all five Dorset Learning Centres will be well represented.
