Well done to the year 5/6 football team that tonight won their group to get through to the next stage of the ESFA tournament. Grange Park were in the group labelled ‘The Group of Death’ (old football saying for extremely tough group) with last weeks 6-a-side County Champions ‘Mount Pleasant’ and last years year 4/5 County Champions St Giles. The group didn’t disappoint with all 3 teams producing some stunning football.
Grange Park won their first match against Mount Pleasant 1-0 and it could of been more if it wasn’t for Mount Pleasant’s outstanding goalkeeper making 4 brilliant saves. This meant if Grange Park won their next match against last years champions St Giles they would go through. The game was end to end before Grange Park broke the deadlock with an outstanding individual goal. Just before half time St Giles had a great chance to score an equaliser but our goalkeeper pulled off one of the best saves we have ever seen, reacting to a point blank shot to it push wide. The boys continued the 2nd half how they played in the first and were eventual winners 3-0 against an extremely good team.
Both games were thoroughly enjoyable to watch tonight and our boys definitely deserved their wins. We can’t wait for the next round now
