Unfortunately our Year 4/5/6 football team narrowly missed out on reaching the quarter finals of the Telford Cup tonight on goal difference. The boys only lost one of their four matches, winning two and drawing their last match 0-0. This meant that the organisers had to go back through all the scores to see which team scored the most and sadly we scored one less goal than St Peters Bratton. The astro-turf pitch at Telford Langley had been double booked so the boys had to play indoor on a small pitch. Some of the boys struggled on the slippy surface to start with but it wasn’t long before they were back to their usual passing and moving style of football. The small pitch didn’t help the flow of the games though with goalkeepers shooting from end to end, which made the games not the most enjoyable to watch. The team gave their all again though and we will now look forward to going back to playing 7 a side football in the Telford Plate competition. Special mention to the two year 4 boys that played fantastic tonight especially as they were against some very big and intimidating year 6’s.
Apologies – I forgot to take a team picture tonight, so I have quickly made one up from previous team photos 🙂
