KS1 Football 21.05.19

KS1 Football 21.05.19 1

The KS1 football had a great evening at Aldecar in the football tournament.

Daniel, Gabriel, Kameron and Jake each scored many goals while Kelsey stopped many attacks in defence. Our main goalkeeper, George, made some fantastic saves and even managed to score a goal.

After placing second in their group the team then went through to the semi-final where unfortunately they lost.

Nevertheless, a great achievement! The children constantly had a smile on their faces and cheered each other on throughout the tournament.
