Our school played a brilliant football match on Tuesday 1st October in the first match of the season.
Our coach and manager have a great array of players to choose from, as talent is ripe in the squad this season. This match was a six a-side game because one of Linacre’s players could not make it, so the poor goalkeepers only had 2 defenders. For all but three of St Philips’ players, this was their debut. Matthew and Charlie (Y5) both scored one goal each and were captains for the game. Nathan (y5) was the only player to score more than one goal – he scored two, one just at the start of his second spell in the game. Lewis (yr6) also got a fabulous goal. Linacre put up a good fight in the second half, but their display was not good enough to beat the defence of St Philips.
At the end of the match Linacre gave the winning team a huge cheer and St Philips roared back at them! The team already hopes that they will win the league. They left school with their heads held high!
Player of the week goes to Matthew in Y5 – Well Done!
Our next match is scheduled to be on Tuesday 8th October.
