Thursday 22nd March 2012 – Swanmore and District Football Rally
Yesterday, 18 year 6 children took part in the annual Swanmore and District Football Rally held at Wickham Primary School. This is a tournament we usually do well in so we arrived in high hopes of winning something shiny to bring back to school…
The children were split into two teams and played in two separate leagues. Team 2 played 3 matches, winning their first game against Droxford and but unfortunately losing against Swanmore and St. John’s. However, it was brilliant to see their determination and team work throughout all their games – something which the spectators commented on.
Team 1 played 4 matches and showed just as much determination and team work. They won 3 matches against Swanmore, St. John’s and Droxford and drew their match 0-0 against Wickham. Once the final match had been played and I added together the scores, we had 11 points in total. Was it enough to win the shield?
After a quick refreshment, we gathered in the presentation area, eagerly awaiting the results. Team 2 came 3rd in their league – a brilliant achievement. Team 1 came 1st, 3 points ahead of 2nd place! As you can imagine, both teams and adults were very happy as the children went up to collect the shield.
Well done to all of the children who took part yesterday afternoon – you were a real credit to yourself and the school:
Team 1 – Jamie, Luke, Jake, Matthew, Sam, Natasha, Nathan, Joseph, Jamie
Team 2 – Issy, Tommy, Penny, Matthew, Matthew, Jamie, David, Jake, Tim
Thank you to the parents and grandparents that also came along to give their support yesterday afternoon.
