Abbey Woods take part in the Elite Sports competition
Ten Year 5 and 6 pupils played amazing football in their first competition.
The competition were very strong and although our team had not played together in a match before, they put up an excellent performance. Every player improved through the competition and our last two matches proved to be our best. The final match for the bottom two places ended in a draw and we went to penalties. Aimee was on goalkeeping duty and after one penalty each we were even. Their second striker (a big lad!) placed the ball and looked very confident. He booted the ball very hard but Aimee moved to her left and caught the ball on her left arm and hand, saving the shot! Our strikers were up for the challenge with all three netting to give us the well-deserved win. Well done to the whole team and thank you to Miss McKnight and Miss Hobbs for arranging the team and running the coaching sessions. There will certainly be more matches in the future.
