On Friday 14th March, Mr Vincent and I took 8 year 5 and 6 boys to the National 5-a-side football tournament in Leicester. After an early start and a 2 and a half hour minibus journey up to Dixie Grammar School we arrived ready for the tournament that faced us. Against some of the best Independent Schools within England we played 6 games in the round robin phase.
We won two, lost 4 and scored 5 goals along the way. All the boys played well, working hard as a team and producing some excellent displays of football for the large crowds of spectators. The standard of football was exceptional and every game was a tough contest. Unfortunately the boys just missed out on a place in the Bowl final and our fantastic run ended there.
I am proud of the boys’ hard work, exceptional sportsmanship and their mature and positive attitude throughout the whole competition. They have worked remarkably hard and I hope they have enjoyed the experience as much as I have.
Well done boys, you are the London South 5-a-side Champions 2014.
