On 18 June, a team of Year 5 and 6 children from St. Francis’ went to Wraxall Primary School to take part in a local football tournament. There were six teams in total from the local area – St. Francis’, Wraxall, Court-de-Wyke, Golden Valley, Kingshill and Backwell Juniors. The teams were put into two groups and the winners of each group would meet each other in the final. Whilst we did our best to think positively, we were a little worried that we had been placed in the group for larger schools because we are considerably smaller!
Our first match was against Backwell. The highlight of the match was when Benji made a break down the line, crossed the ball and Will finished it off. We then scored another and won the match 2 – 0. Our second match was against Golden Valley and we won that one 2 – 1.
That meant we had topped our group and were in the final against Court-de-Wyke. It was a tough game but we managed to win 1 – 0! Everyone on the team did an excellent job and we are very proud of our trophy.
