Wokingham School Games Year 5/6 Girls Football Tournament

1st November 2018

On Thursday 1st November, a team of Year 5 and 6 girls competed at the annual Wokingham School Games football tournament. Unlike last year’s tournament, which saw freezing winds and sheeting rain, the children were greeted by clear November skies. The girls made a brilliant start to their group games with a 2-0 win and followed this up with three more wins and one defeat, finishing the group in second place (the loss was to the eventual winners of the tournament). Unfortunately, due to the number of schools attending, only one school from each group progressed through to the knockout stages. Mr Lappin was very proud of the energy levels of the girls and their ability to deal with any danger on the pitch calmly – this bodes well for their upcoming league matches!
