Football -  Congratulations to our Year 5 Football Team who won the Year 5 Football Tournament at The Abbey School on Wednesday the 21st of June.

Our first match was against Bysingwood, we won 3-0, with jack scoring 2 and Charlie scoring 1. The next match was against Hernhill, we drew 1-1.  Our next game was against Boughton, we were losing 2-0, we came back with a hatrick from Charlie giving us another win.

Our final game was our first loss against Ethelbert.  They won 1-0, it was an extremely tight game but they deserved the win.

The children were so excited to be in the final against Bapchild and Tonge Primary School.  The first half ended with us down 1-0, we equalised in the second half, which meant penalties!  Luckily Bapchild hit the crossbar with their first penalty and then we saved one, our boys took scored some great penalties to give us the win.  It was an amazing day, well done!
