Match report by Evan (vice captain) and Callum (captain)
On Tuesday 15th November, our school football team form children in years 5 and 6, played a match against Ernsford Grange. Ernsford Grange scored an early goal, sending a huge wake up call to our team. We gathered our composure and started to play the game the way we normally play. At half time the score was 0-1; we were one goal down! We had a team talk and came out for the second half with more confidence. It showed! Their keeper tried hard to stop us from scoring but our captain Callum scored the second goal making it one all. Good goal keeping and defensive work from both teams made it an exciting and nervous game. Richard Lee came under a lot of pressure in the last five minutes of the game. We defended well but gave away a free kick which Ernsford Grange scored from two minutes before the final whistle. The game ended in a two all draw. We played an amazing game, with both goals scored from Callum.
On Tuesday November 15th, a team from Year 5 and Year 6 went to the Alan Higgs Centre to take part in an athletics competition.
