The Ricki Herbert Football Academy’s U-13 team has finished runners-up in the plate competition at the Christchurch United international tournament.

Despite challenging weather conditions — extreme cold and a water-laden pitch surface — the players stuck to their aim of playing attractive football and reached the final after two days of group play.

Thanks to Toby Longbottom for the following photographs taken during the plate final.
