U9 Football!

6th October 2021

The U9 or Y4 A and B team attended the Downsend 6 a side football tournament on Saturday 2 October 2021.

The A team played some incredible opposition in some horrendous conditions finishing 3rd in the group, due to goal difference, having drawn twice, won twice and lost once. In a 3rd place play-off match vs groups 2’s 3rd place Cranmore the match was extremely close finishing 1-1 so the match had to be settled with penalties. Nico O was superb in goal saving 2 out of 3 penalties (the final one is attached in the video) and Alexander L and Miles Q scored to win the match in penalties by a score of 2-1. This meant the A team secured 5th place overall. Our sportsperson of the tournament was Nico O and Kingston H.
