On Thursday 26th January 2017 our Year 5 boys’ football team played in the Bournemouth Schools League knockout stage finals at Littledown Leisure Centre. We were one of 4 teams to qualify, the other teams being Epiphany, St Katharine’s and Hillview. We played a fraught semi-final against Hillview, which kept Daniel, our goalkeeper, very busy! We won 1-0, resulting in us playing the final against the other semi-final winners who were St Katharine’s – a local derby!!
Following another tense game, with many shots from our players on target (one hitting the cross bar) we unfortunately lost 2-1. It was an evenly matched game and, although it was disappointing to lose, the boys did phenomenally well to finish the second best team in Bournemouth with such a close score.
What a bunch of super-stars – we are so proud of you all! The boys who played were Khattab Al Ani, Daniel Paun, Finley Hooper, Joshua Kerney, Leland Lewis, Fergus Fairfax-Strathern and Ralph Holloway.
