A brilliant afternoon once again!
The condition of the pitch was not ideal but the children ignored it and fought on through to produce some brilliant high quality football.

The team spirit from everyone…
Countless highlights from me! What were your highlights?
We began with each team sorting out a warm-up, doing tactics and practising ready for the competition to start.
Wizards 2:0 Knights
Tilli Warren and Thomas Curry.
Unicorns 1:0 Dragons
Wizards 0:1 Unicorns
Dragons 1:0 Knights
Wizards 1:0 Dragons
Unicorns 3:0 Knights
George B x2 and Archie Chorlton
These results left the third place play-off to be between the Knights and the Dragons, and the final to be between the Unicorns and the Wizards.
Third Place Play-off:
Courtney Davies scored a volley from a William Pickering shot that hit the post. Liam Mooney did fantastically to push the ball onto the post but Courtney did just better to get a toe to it! At the other end, Dzesmina played superbly to prevent the goals going in, a last-minute save particularly rememerable… A very close game.
Knights 1:0 Dragons
The Unicorns vs. the Wizards… The wizards took a very early lead through Thomas Curry and added to the lead moments later with a goal from Max Smith. Max scored possibly the goal of the tournament, as Thomas Curry fed him through with a superbly weighted through ball, first touch shot from Max straight into the bottom corner!
The remainder of the game saw Archie and George B rallying their team forward. Mikey Richey became a fabulous goalkeeper and saved a few closely. Archie Chorlton clawed a goal back but the game ended 2-1. The only game to end a score-draw!
Unicorns 1:2 Wizards
Archie Chorlton. Max Smith and Thomas Curry.
Well done to everyone who got stuck in! Certainly looking forward to our next interhouse competition.
A great way to end the term.
