Our football teams have played in two games last Tuesday 13th and Thursday 15th June. A team of year 5s and 6s who mostly hadn't represented the school before played against a much more experienced Forest Glade team on Tuesday and even though the game ended in a loss our team were brave and also kept going to the end of the game on a tricky pitch amid sweltering temperatures.
On Thursday our league team played a cup match against Broomhill Juniors in Hucknall. Roared on by their whole school Broomhill took an early lead with a great finish. Our children battled well and played some fantastic football. Goals from Sam and JJ gave us a deserved 2-1 lead at half time much to the annoyance of the home crowd. In hot conditions, against a strong Broomhill, side the second half saw our team create numerous scoring chances but unfortunately not convert them. Broomhill were more clinical and ended up winning 4-2 to end the season for our team.
The 9 boys who played on Thursday played fantastically well and we were all incredibly impressed by the way they have represented the school this year. Much more importantly they have all consistently shown other teams that you can play competitively but also be kind and respectful to your opponents. Many thanks for all the support from families who have provided transport and words of wisdom all season.
