Richmond Football Tournament

Categories: School News

Last Wednesday we went to the Richmond 7-a-side boys’ football tournament held in Teddington. There were 35 schools entered. We were really excited because we were Year 5 and we were representing the school for the first time.

The following people were in the team: Luke (Y5), Charlie (Y5), Jack (Y6), Finn (Y6), Luke (Y6), Xavi (Y6), James (Y5), Stefan (Y6),  and Nathan (Y6).

We played really well in the group stages winning 2 games and drawing 1. We played some excellent football and won our group. In the afternoon we entered the knock out stages and won our first game 1-0. in the quarter final we played St. Stephen's. It was a really tight game but unfortunately we lost 1-0. St Stephen’s went on to win the whole competition so we think we did really well to have only lost 1-0 to them.

Mr Rosewell thought we were the best team in the whole tournament.

The team would like to thank Mr Rosewell and Mr Schomberg for great coaching and all the Mums and Dads who came along to support.
