Bohemian Sporting Club ends its contention in the on-going SingaCup U10 when its Team 1 was stopped in its tracks by Australian side Athletic Football Group by a score of 0-4 in the quarterfinals, the best finish so far by a Philippine-based club in both U8 and U10 divisions this 2019 edition.
The club, headed by Chairman and Philippine international footballer Jason de Jong, sent two teams in the U10 competition with Team 2 reaching the Round of 16 playoffs only to be eliminated by Alba FC of Indonesia also by a 4-0 scoreline.
Meanwhile other teams Philippine-based U10 contingents Manila Japanese FC and Sugod Malaya FC were only able to participate in the group stage after finishing third and fourth respectively (each group comprised of five teams with only the top two finishers heading into the Round of 16).
In the U8 division, sole Filipino participants Rovers FC of Davao were able to reach the Round of 16 after finishing third in their group (Top three teams in each of the two groups in U8 division qualify for the knockouts).
The Mindanao-based side were not able to reach the quarterfinals after being edged by Singapore’s Little League by a narrow 1-0 margin.
With the results, the Philippine contingents’ campaigns for the 2019 SingaCup U8 and U10 have come to their respective conclusions.
Come November 4, three divisions will commence their respective tournaments where the Philippines will be represented by PAREF Southridge (U12), Kaya Futbol Academy (U12, U14), Makati Football Club (U14), Great Oak Manor (U14), and Foobtall Funatics – FFAS (U16).
