On Thursday 19th September 2019, Mr Bellhouse and Mr Donlon took 8 boys to the annual 'Our Lady's football competition'.
The boys involved were Geordie, Rossi, Tymon, Leo, Harry, Sean, Patryk and Victor.
I have to start by saying it was a joy to take the boys out to the competition and they represented school magnificently with their sportsmanship and fair play.
Secondly, the boys played some fantastic football. Each and every one of the team gave 100% and their efforts were rewarded on the pitch with some brilliant results! They started the first 3 games with 3 wins and 0 goals conceded. Geordie in goal made some terrific saves and Tymon, Leo and Rossi were solid in defence, blocking everything that came their way. Harry and Sean didn't stop running in midfield and they were key to the goals we scored. Harry with his excellent tackling and passing and Sean with his determination and excellent first touch. Up front, Patryk and Victor showed their skill and eye for goal with a number of well taken finishes and assists. Patryk finished the tournament as top scorer. A special mention has to go to Victor who provided arguably the moment of the tournament with a long range goal in the dying seconds of the game against St Bernadette's to win us the match, what a goal!! That feeling will stay with us all for a while!
The boys finished the tournament having played 5 games, winning 3, drawing 1, losing 1 and only conceding 3 goals in the whole tournament- what an effort! This secured us a 2nd placed finish in the tournament and a silver medal, only 2 points behind the winners Ryelands.
Well done on a fantastic effort to all of the boys involved, you did school proud!
