Although when compared to older counterparts Under-14 athletes may seem small in size, their play over the thee-day span of competition at the 2014 National Futures Championship proved that they are very mighty in spirit. Whether they were following in the footsteps of older siblings or simply picked up a stick years ago on a whim, Under-14 athletes took to the Spooky Nook Sports pitch by storm, showcasing their skills and vying for a gold medal. Passion and excitement for the game was evident throughout division play and yesterday champions were crowned.
