Football boys

Our Year 5/6 football team has been busy competing in friendlies, league and cup games.


Pre-season we played friendlies against our friends from Long Meadow, Bushfield and Middleton.


We then we played 3 league games over the evenings of Wednesday 14th & 28th November.

We have had 3 narrow defeats in all 3 games and not got what we have deserved from the games. Conceding late goals hasn’t helped as we’ve done so with 10 and 4 seconds to go in two of the games.


However, it’s more about how the team is developing that is important and they have played some great football.


On Friday 30th November they competed in the EFL Kids cup at Woughton on the Green.


The team finished third in their group and just missed out on competing in the finals.


The Year 5/6 football team then completed its league season at the beginning of the year.


We finished 4th in our league. We have played some really good football and defended well where we only conceded 6 goals in 6 games. Sadly, we just didn’t score enough goals that would have seen us finish higher in the league.


The team played with the right attitude and spirit throughout and were a credit to the school.


The football squad is :- Laila, Henry, Zico, Callum, Jack, Luke, Tavanashe, Sam, Tom, Oliver and Harvey.
