Today Year 5 and 6 played in the Dacorum School Sports Network Football Tournament held at Ashlyns School, Berkhamsted. This was a seven a-side tournament.
We started off by playing Hobletts Manor sadly losing 1-0. Next we played St Pauls school but we unfortunately lost 1-0 again. Aster that, the team played Greenways and we beat them 3-1. Our last game was against Boxmoor School and we won 1-0. This meant that we came 3rd in Group E and sadly did not progress through to the quarter finals.

Mr Yoxall says:
Whilst the team were slightly disappointed to have not progressed through to the quarter final stages of the tournament they did all play very well. All of the team made a good contribution to the games and everyone worked hard. The pitches that they played on were significantly longer than those the team had played on previously so this had a large effect on the schools play and meant that players were out of position when our opposition scored. This is a good learning experience for our players and hopefully makes them stronger for next year!
