Football and Netball Success
Football and Netball Success at the South Broxtowe Sports Tournament
It was a fantastic afternoon for our football and netball teams at the South Broxtowe Sports Tournament. We entered two teams in each competition that was, once again, hosted at Bramcote Hills. In a busy afternoon, with lots of schools attending the standard of play was very impressive in both sports. Our netball 'A' and 'B' teams played extremely well, after a slow start, with the 'A' team being victorious in the end, winning a keenly contested final against Round Hill.
Both football teams did so well that they ended up meeting each other it the semi-final stage. The 'A' team only progressed after extra time. The final against Fairfield was another thrilling affair that, unfortunately, had to be settled on penalties when the score was 1-1 after extra-time. After a tremendous set of penalties, the 'A' team won, showing great sportsmanship to the opposition.
This was a fantastic afternoon's sport. Well done to all the children and thanks, as always, to Mrs Flewitt, Miss Whiley and Mr Minta (the special one has now coached the footballers to league and cup success this season).
