Football

On Friday 2nd October 2015, the year 5/6 football team enjoyed success in the small school 7-a-side tournament at Robert Ferguson School. They proudly wore their new kit, kindly sponsored by Edward Dewhurst - electrical engineering and contracting. The team were managed by Mr Andrews, and with super team spirit, some last-ditch tackling and superbly taken goals, they won the league on goal difference meaning they qualified for the regional tournament in Barrow!

The following weekend, the team travelled to Barrow having lost one player to illness, but with a fantastic new recruit. Having played 5, won 3, drawn 1 and lost 1, the team made the final on goal difference. A closely fought final, which could have left either side tasting victory, resulted in a 1 - 0 loss (to what Mr Andrews described as 'a dodgy penalty!')

The children were an excellent team and they did the school proud. Thank you to the parents for the support and for transporting the players. Well done everyone!
