The Kobras were in action at the annual Inverleith tournament this weekend, a huge event with clubs from all over Eastern Scotland taking over both Peffermill pitches for the day.
In the U10s, Gus Clark was making his debut at the tender age of 7, and no doubt it was a typical battling Clark family performance. The team won some, drew some and lost some and generally had a good time.
The U12s also featured a couple of debutants, in the shape of Louie Parsons and Ellah Roberts, who fitted in very nicely into the team. Louis managed to get on the scoresheet within a couple of minutes of taking to the pitch for the first time. The team did very well too, making it through to the final eight, where they drew with Gullane, but went through on goal difference from the earlier rounds. This led to a semi-final showdown with hosts Inverleith, to whom they had already lost in the pool stages. In the event, Inverleith will have felt themselves lucky to come away with a draw, a result that saw them go through on a marginally superior goal difference to Kinross.
The U15s were a bit of a scratch team, borrowing a couple of players from Stirling Wanderers and lending them a goalie in return. But there was some excellent hockey played, and with two U12s playing as well, they ended up a very creditable 9th.
