Year 5 Football and Netball Tournament @ Luckley House

10th October 2018

Last Wednesday, two sporting Shinfield teams descended upon Luckley House in a duel football and netball tournament. Recorded as the hottest day in October, the children were excited at the prospect of playing against their own age group in a tournament, without Year 6 children. Led by Mr Lincoln and Mr Childs, the football team only lost one game in the group stages before progressing into the knockout stages. Unfortunately they were unable to progress further but the boys left with a number of hard-fought wins under their belts. The netball team, with Mr Lappin, dominated their group games and the children really showed tenacity in their gameplay. The team confidently began the semi-finals but were beaten convincingly by Polehampton. It was a big learning curve for the netball team and they left the tournament determined to improve their shooting and possession.
