On Friday 23rd February a squad of 8 boys competed in a schools football tournament at The Gallagher Stadium in Maidstone. We played 4 group games with the following results:
So with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss we were through to the quarter-finals. The last 8 teams out of 20 starting teams. A great achievement! The boys had played really well and were thrilled to be progressing on in the tournament.
In the quarter finals we played against a young Wateringbury side. The match was very tight and looked to be heading towards golden goal when with 2 minutes to go Wateringbury found themselves one on one with the keeper and managed to sneak a goal. We tried hard to equalize but just ran out of time. We had an enjoyable and exciting day. Miss Collins and I were really proud of the way the boys played and behaved.
Looking forward to the girls tournament which should be this Friday weather permitting.
It was lovely weather for the girls football tournament on Friday 16th March. The sun shone and we enjoyed playing at the Gallagher Stadium home of Maidstone United. We played 5 matches in the group stages. We made an impressive start with a 2-0 win over Hunton. We then lost the next two matches 1-0 in very close matches. We then went on to lose 3-0 and 2-0.
The girls played really well showing that they had improved and developed their skills since the tournament that we played in the autumn. For some girls this was their first chance to play in a proper football match and they all played with commitment and enthusiasm. A special mention for Florence and Elizabeth Dixon our two brave goalkeepers, they were brilliant and kept many goals out.
All girls were awarded medals and free tickets to watch Maidstone United play.
Well done girls we are proud of you!
We are looking forward to this competition on Monday 26th March at Pegasus Gymnastics Club. We are taking a Year 5/6 team, a Year 3/4 team and two Year 1/2 teams. These children are busy practising and remembering the routines that they have to perform. Good luck everyone!
