Our second competition of the 2016/17 year saw our year 5&6 boys football team compete against 10 other schools from around the borough. Because of the volume of teams we were split into two groups, group A and group B. We were put into group B and the winner from our group would play the winner from group A and the two second placed teams from each group would play for 3rd and 4th. We started off really well, playing some really nice football limiting the opposition too hardly, if any shots on goal. Unfortunately a lapse in concentration saw us concede two goals which put us on the back foot, we managed to get a goal back but it wasn’t enough. Our second and third game we started strong, shocking the opposition into how well we can actually play. We worked hard for each other, encouraged each other and played some INSPIRING and CREATIVE football! Because of this we won both matches (3 nil and 2 nil) which meant we finished second within our group. We went into the bronze medal match with lots of confidence, it really showed and proved to be vital, we managed to get an early goal which settled our nerves. We went on to win the match 4-0 meaning we finished 3rd overall. A great ACHIEVEMENT for the lads and we expect many more victories and medals to follow over the year.
