Despite the cold temperatures and wet conditions, Premier UK Elite players from all over the triangle came together this past weekend for the first time this year. It was a fantastic weekend for all teams involved with some excellent soccer on show as well as plenty of hard work. Teams were out braving the cold, wind and even rain to get some games in before the regular club season starts this weekend. With nearly 30 games played over the space of two days on the beautiful turf fields in Mebane NC, our teams got to play some wonderful games with opponents from various clubs from around North Carolina.
PUK Elite Director Barrie Chamberlain was delighted with the weekend. "It really was a fantastic weekend of soccer for our players" said Chamberlain. "We have a lot of new faces in the program this year and this was a perfect way to kick off the PUK Elite program in 2020. From our U8 teams to our U18 teams everyone had a wonderful time."
Players are invited into the program which runs alongside their regular club seasons in NCYSA and is designed to improve the quality of play as well more opportunities for players to enjoy the game. "Seeing the players wear our colors and play with smiles on their faces is always a highlight for me. It makes all the hard work during and building up to the weekend worth while."
