On a very cold and rainy Thursday afternoon, our Year 6 football team visited the brand new Mansfield Town Academy to take part in a national tournament. The prize was a trip to Wembley! They played brilliantly - showing excellent teamwork and phenomenal resilience throughout - to top their group. After progressing to the final, they played a nail-biting game against King Edwin Primary School. The team played amazingly and hit the post a few times, but the final score was 0-0. Unfortunately, the boys were defeated in a dramatic penalty shoot out.
I have to say that I was immensely proud of our boys. They showed great sportsmanship and represented our school respectfully. Thank you to all of the parents who came along to support us!
