On Thursday 11th October, our Year 5/6 Football team took part in the annual Nottingham Schools F.A Carnival 6 a side tournament, held at the Forest Zone on Gregory Boulevard.
The team played in four, six minute mini matches. Narrowly losing 1-0 to Cantrell Primary and then 1-0 to Haydn Primary. This was followed by two hard fought 0-0 draws against Sycamore and Rise park.
As always, some excellent team work and individual skill was on show. A disallowed goal against Sycamore prevented the team from gaining their first win of the season but a third place finish in their group was highly commendable.
Joint players of the tournament were Riley Shepherd from Marvellous Maples, for his outstanding goalkeeping and Jonaton Kocot from Super Cedars, for a composed debut in defence.
A big thank you to all the parents and family members who came along to support the team. We now look forward to our first league matches this Thursday.
