This day was a fantastic opportunity for our football teams to battle it out against numerous other schools from the city. Set at Goals Soccer Centre, the children played on an astro turf surface which pitted their skills in a more fast paced match environment than the league games. Both teams showed spirit, friendship and excellence in the way they played and were a real credit representing the school.
For the girls' team, they continued to show how much potential they have and improved rapidly throughout the day. It was fantastic to see that despite results not going their way, they maintained a cheery attitude and once their games were finished an eagerness to come along and support the boys. Thank you girls it was a pleasure taking you out of school today!
In the boys' competition, a water tight defence and relentlessness in attack meant they came away from the group stages having scored 46 goals whilst only conceding 11. This led to 9 wins with only a solitary defeat (which came against a truly incredible side). This placed them into a final, which they showed true class and composure to win 6-1. As a reward for this, they have earned their way to the Southampton FC finals day at Staplewood. Well done boys, enjoy your medals!
