A report of the recent local Football Tournament. Written by Toby Hales in Year 6.
On Thursday 4th October 2018, local schools from Letchworth and Baldock participated in a Football Tournament held at St. Christopher’s School. We started really well against Sandon drawing 1 – 1, thanks to a goal from Aidan.
Our confidence grew as the tournament went on, with a stunning victory over St. Christopher 3 – 0. Aidan picked up two more with Blue getting the other.
St. John’s moved from strength to strength with a 4 – 0 victory over St. Nicholas. Once again Aidan was on the scoresheet with two, with Blue matching him.
Game Four saw St. John’s come up against a tough team in the Lordship School. After a tight game, Blue stole a winner with yet another clean sheet thanks to Henry and Kian.
The final group game was against a very good St. Mary’s team. Despite our best efforts, St Mary’s snuck through with a 1 – 0 win. St Mary’s went on to win the Tournament.
St. John’s had a 5th place playoff against the mighty Hartsfield. Fortunately, St. John’s triumphed 1 – 0 with Blue scoring the match winning goal.
It was a great start to the season and a real team performance from all the boys. A special mention to Ollie Jardine who created a number of goals and the great work by Henry in defence and Kian in goal.
A big thank you goes to our coach, Mr Baynham, for preparing our team so well.
