Our Year 4 Academy group were entered into the recent BWCI Football Festival.
We put two teams together to 'play up' against the Year 5 teams, and both performed fantastically over the two day festival.
Coming up against local club teams, a team from Jersey Wanderers and a talented group from Bristol City, our teams finished 7th and 8th out of a group of 15 teams.
This sent them both into a plate semi final match. Both games against North and Rangers were incredibly close and ended 0-0, with the matches going to penalties.
Unfortunately the lottery went against us and so neither team progressed. That being said, the experience that these young players will have gained cannot be overlooked and we were so proud of their efforts. The tears shed at the end showed just how much they enjoyed it and wanted to do well.
We're all already looking forward to next year and another fantastic festival.
