Wilsthorpe 7 a side Football Team 2.10.18

On Tuesday 2nd October, Mr Bunhejee, Mr Roper and Mr Johnson took the Y5/6 football team to the 7 aside tournament at Wilsthorpe. In a close first game Cloudside beat us 2:1, Jonah scoring a consolation goal. This meant the pressure was on against English Martyrs but it didn’t show and they dominated to win 4:0 with goals from Dylan x2, Archie and Harry. Confidence was high in a close game against Dovedale which we won 1:0 thanks to a fine goal from Archie. This meant it went to the last game. Unfortunately we lost 1:0 so it was all down to goal difference! Luckily we topped our group due to the 4:0 win. So we would play a semi-final against Firfield B. The team were high on confidence and playing some super football. They controlled a tense game, winning 2:0 through a Dylan penalty and a Theo strike! This means we have qualified for the Erewash Finals! Well done Archie, Dylan, Logan, Oliver, Jayden, Tommy, Jonah, Ethan, Harry and Theo. Thank you to all the parents who helped with transporting children and who came along to support the team. I’ll let you know when we have the date for the finals.
