We are delighted to report that this years District Cubs 5-A-Side Football Champions 2018 are 1fg Cubs.
We had two teams enter the competition, held at Leasowe Recreation Centre. Both teams played their best in the qualifying group stages, with our A team winning their Group and the B team missing out on the chance to go into the quarter finals despite their efforts.
The A team won their respective quarter final and semi final, although 1st Thurstaston did take the semi final to a nail biting finish, with 1FG coming out winners with a narrow 4-3 victory. The final was between ourselves and Newton, and with early pressure and goals, 1FG never looked back and went on to win convincingly.
We are absolutely delighted. This team has been trying for a couple of years, missing out in the quarter finals last year, so with perseverance they finally made it to the top. Well done to each and everyone of our Cubs who took part, and many congratulations from the Group.

We had a fantastic turn out for the West Wirral District St Georges Day Parade and Picnic from Royden Park to the Wirral Country Park at Thurstaston. Together with other groups from around the district, we walked to Thurstaston with flags flying where we had a picnic and a Fire Breathing & Tricks show. Thank you each and every one of our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Young Leaders and Leaders who were able to attend on the day.

1FG Cubs spent a fantastic weekend camp at our HQ to celebrate the 100 Years of Cubs. We enjoyed a movie night with hot chocolate and marshmallows, two nights of sleeping in our tents, a trip to
Liverpool via Bus, Ferry and Train together with a visit to the Museum learning about space and how to get there as well as all the wonderful things to see and do.
We invested a Cub and a new Cub Leader at the Pier Head.
We ate McDonalds as a treat for Lunch, we visited Willy Wonka’s in West Kirby and took the Toxic Waste Challenge. We had a huge campfire and sang songs old and new ….. we ventured out onto Thurstaston common and we had a Party BBQ to finish it all off.
The sun shone down on us every day. It was a truly brilliant adventure and camp.

The place, Leasowe Recreation Centre, 23rd January 2016 ….. what a competition, and a fantastic result of finishing overall 3rd after winning the 3rd place playoff. We are so proud of all the boys, they played brilliantly and in the spirit of scouting, fair and like true sportsmen.
Everyone did their part and they were a wonderful team to watch and be with, and they represented 1FG Cubs impeccably. Please join me in congratulating them.
Thanks to our supporting fans (Mums and Dads), and to Tony Lowry for his coaching and advise to the team.
