The youngest team in the Juventus Youth Sector, the Pulcini, have started their season in the best possible way after bringing home the prestigious September Tournament trophy in eye-catchingly confident fashion.
Massimiliano Marchio (who coaches the youngsters along with Fabio Moschini and Andrea Gallelli), guided his team to overall victory in the competition played yesterday at Cologno al Serio, Bergamo; their first competitive outing of the season.
And they won it in real style, recordinga perfect run of five victories - two of which came against boys a year older – to seal a memorable silverware success.
The Bianconeri progressed through the first stage thanks to a 3-0 win against Ciserano and a subsequent 2-0 triumph over Venezia.
Their fine form continued as Chievo, Sarnico and Albinoleffe all succumbed to ruthless performances in 1-0, 2-1 and 1-0 defeats respectively.
Finishing the tournament on a maximum of nine points, the victorious Pulcini now seem set for a season of many more successes.
