Well done to our year 3/4 football team that competed in the Telford & Wrekin football tournament this afternoon at TCAT.
The children were an absolute credit to the school again and we couldn’t be any prouder of their performances. The team won their first match 3-0 against Aqueduct, drew their 2nd 0-0 with Short Wood and won their third match 2-0 against one of the favourites Ladygrove.
This meant whoever won the match between ourselves and a very good St Patricks team would get through to the semi finals. The game was extremely tight and Grange Park looked to have built a brick wall that St Patricks couldn’t get through, but then with a few minutes left they scored a thunderous free kick that our goalkeeper nearly saved tipping the ball onto the post but it just crept in.
We then went all out and nearly scored ourselves but it just wasn’t to be our day today.
St Patricks then went on to win their semi final and the final, so our team only lost to the eventual winners.
We couldn’t be any prouder of these fantastic footballers tonight, not only for their performance on the pitch but for their fantastic attitude after defeat as well.
