Well done to our Y5/Y6 girls’ football team who played in a league tournament at Springs Academy last Thursday. They played five games against Arbourthorne, Wybourn, Emmaus, Acres Hill and Prince Edward’s, ending the tournament joint top, but missing out on first place on goal difference. What an excellent result girls, well done. The girls haven’t been training together long and it was their first tournament, but they still managed to show off their excellent teamwork and football skills.
On the same afternoon our Y6 boys’ football team was playing in the South Yorkshire finals in Doncaster. Our boys battled well and showed great determination, they drew three games and lost four. It was a huge achievement for the team to reach the finals and we are exceptionally proud of how they have performed throughout their journey to the finals. Well done boys.
Year 6 Football
On Tuesday night one of our Year 6 boys’ football teams played in the English schools’ football tournament at Sheffield Springs Academy. They competed against six other schools winning four games and drawing two. They are now through to the South Yorkshire finals which will take place on Thursday 11th January in Doncaster. This is a tremendous achievement and we are so proud of them.
Our Year 5 and Year 6 girls’ football team also played on Wednesday evening in their tournament and played really well. Sadly they didn’t get through to the finals but showed real determination and teamwork skills – that’s all we can ask of them and we are proud of all their efforts.
Well done to all our football stars.
