7 aside Football Mini League
On Thursday a group of 8, from years 5/6 travelled to Watlington for the first of 5 matches in this League, organised by Adam from Whitefriars. It is something that has been in the making for a few months now and it is a competition. As Watlington are not in our Cluster we haven’t ever played them in any competitions so it was good to have that challenge. They were tough opposition and it was a case of getting to grips with that, and a considerably larger pitch than ours. In saying all that we did get into our stride, but unfortunately we let in 2 goals. However, we rearranged and fought back to level pegging after half time, with minutes to go they scored their 3rd which was disappointing but we played to the end giving it everything.
It was a tough game but there were some super throw-ins by Harry, Max and Sam, great covering by Pixie and George, super movement from Charlie and great goalkeeping from Finlay and Lenny, in saying all that the determination and willingness to keep on going was immense. The comments from the children were very positive which is always lovely to hear.
Thank you to Mr Winsor for refereeing at short notice, to Mrs Day for transporting and parents for supporting. Our next match is against Fairstead.
