Local Football Tournaments

Our Y5 and Y6 boys took part in a local football tournament over 2 weeks. At the end of the tournament, they came joint top of the league sharing the trophy with another local school. We were particularly proud of the team's sporting attitude!

Our girls Y5/Y6 football team also came joint top of their league. They played brilliantly as a team against some tough opposition. Well done also to one team member who was awarded Player of the Tournament!
