Arsenal toast home tournament treble
FOOTBALL Bath Arsenal teams picked up a hat-trick of winners' trophies at their home tournament last weekend.
Teams from as far afield as Swansea and Hereford joined local sides at Lansdown Playing Fields and there was some fantastic football on show.
The under-9s to 14s age groups produced some thrilling play, while the under-7s and 8s showed how the game is developing at mini level. Respect and sportsmanship was shown throughout.
Arsenal triumphed in the under-9s, 11s and 14s categories, while AFD Bath under-13s added another tournament crown to their collection and Bitton were the under-12s winners. FC Bath won the under- 7s fair play award.

The home club's Tigers and Pumas contested the final of the under-9s event after dominating on home soil.
And it was Tigers who came out on top as James and Will scored in a 2-1 win, with Ben W replying at the other end.
Pumas had earlier produced the performance of the day to defeat the much-fancied and previously unbeaten Highworth Town in the semi-finals, courtesy of Daniel's stunning 20-yard volley.
Tigers, meanwhile, needed a last-minute leveller from James and Louie's extra-time winner to see off Larkhall in the other semi.
Tournament organiser Pete Maddison said: "This tournament remains popular across the South West and further afield, despite the wet June weather.
"The standard of teams entering gets tougher and tougher each year, with brilliant football being played by all, and this was evident throughout all the age groups."
