On Wednesday 19th November our Year 5 and 6 boys and girls (plus a few extras!) entered the Football Festival at The Red Bull Pitches Malmesbury.
The girls played really well, defending being our strong point. Unfortunately, we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net despite lots of good chances. We lost 3 games which were very close 2-0, 1-0 and 2-0 and won 1-0 in our third match. We then played off for 8th/9th place and won 1-0! Well done to all the team Grace, Emily, Lily, Molly, Orlagh, Polly, Millie, Aylesha and Zoe.
The boys also had a fantastic tournament coming third in their group. They won two games, drew 2 games and lost one. They played off for 4th/5th place in a nail biting match in which we went 1-0 up. Then the opposition equalized taking us into extra time. Again we went ahead and held onto our lead for a good while with some great defending taking place before an equalizer was scored. Right at the very end our opposition scored just pipping us to 4th place. Great determination and resilience shown by all our players Zak, Fred, Alexander, Brandon, Louis, George, Freddie and Joshua S.
