What an incredible day. This game was just one part of the Christmas Truce commemoration weekend, remembering the match played 100 years ago in no-mans land.
The efforts of everyone in school culminated with this football match between the pupils and the teachers, a game of 5-a-side, in which both teams really wanted to win.
The teachers had trained hard and really believed they could win, but hadn’t taken into account the skills and speed of the children. The determination of every child including a brilliant goalkeeping display by Liam Bates meant a very hard fought victory, well deserved and played by all in the spirit of the occasion.
School Team = Liam, Melvyn, Dylan, James (c), Jack, Noel, David, Alfie, Xavier, Dante, George, Tyrese.
