On Friday 9th October year 5/6 boys competed in a football tournament. They played 3 games drawing their first 2 and losing their final game 1-0. The team they lost against went on to win the whole tournament. The boys came close to scoring on several occasions, and were constantly in communication with each other and their improvement was clear to see. The boys have been working on passing and positions during training sessions and during the matches it was apparent because they were taking their time and making accurate precise passes. Thank you for all the parents, friends and family that came to support the boys.
