One week after the successful Boccia competition, a group of Year 5&6 boys and girls traveled to Priestley College, competing in the English Schools' Football Association's (ESFA) Football tournament. The children were split into two teams and started the competition in different groups. Both teams were unlucky not to get a winning start, with team one drawing 1-1 and team two drawing 0-0. Unfortunately neither team made it out of the group stages, however the fun did not stop there. Whilst the semi-finals were being played out, both of our teams were able to play a friendly competition against the other schools who did not make it through either. Consequently, this meant that both team one and team two had to play each other, with all players relishing the chance to beat their friends. Team one were victorious this time round, however both teams thoroughly enjoyed the day and are now looking forward to the Road to Goodisoncompetition (provisional dates below).
All throughout November a team of Year 6 boys has competed in a Football festival at Penketh High School against other primary schools in the local area.
