SSP Quicksticks Cup Competition @ Lynnsport

Monday 4th March

Once again this was a new event for years 5/6 which then leads to a County Finals Tournament at Dereham. There were 18 teams taking part from all over the west of the county which were then divided into 4 pools. Each team comprised of 3 boys and 3 girls, hence the need to include some younger girls as we had entered 2 teams.

Everyone was very excited and the sun shone despite it being a little chilly when it disappeared behind a cloud. Mrs Day took Sandringham Steelers to their pool with Gayton, Dersingham and Howard Junior. They played well and really improved as the event went on culminating in them winning their play off game against Fairstead from group 1.

Sandringham Sharks headed to group 1 alongside Terrington, Fairstead, Flitcham and Hillcrest which we played in that order. It was a tentative start but we managed to win all our games conceding only 1 goal against Fairstead. They all worked very hard coping well with the 4-minute rotations throughout the games and supporting the younger players on their team. They then had to play Gayton for a semi-final place, unfortunately Gayton scored early on and maintained their 1 goal advantage to the end, we were not without a chance or two but it just didn’t happen. Despite their obvious disappointment they were as always sporting, leaving Gayton to take on St Marthas for 3rd/4th position, Dersingham and Glebe fought out the final with Dersingham winning on a golden goal. The Sharks finished a very creditable joint 7th with the Steelers in 15th.

Everyone was extremely positive and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

A fantastic day!

Great Effort;

Foster, Lenny, Dylan, George, William, Isaac R, Pip, Maisie, Elennie, Harriet, Bridget, Georgina.
