St John Bosco Catholic Primary School

Our young footballers played in the finals evening of the 5-a-side indoor competition for local schools. The standard of football was high and we had performed well last week in order to get this far. With a changed squad to give more children a chance to play, we had a difficult start against the strongest team. Despite our best efforts we lost 4-0. However, the response from the whole team was impressive. We went into our second game showing more tactical awareness and great determination and teamwork to stop the opposition scoring. In addition to a vastly improved defence, we also started creating chances and deservedly won the second match 1-0. It was a similar story in the last game and we earned another 1-0 victory. This meant that we finished in second place and took away the silver runners-up medals. A big well done to the 7 members of today’s squad as well as the additional 5 who played last week. Our goal scorers were Aniekeme and Simon and the laces this week for great listening in order to continually improve was also Simon. Congratulations all!
