Year 5/6 Futsal Winners at Long Eaton School

Mr Bunhejee and Miss Mills took the Y5/6 Futsal team to Long Eaton School for an Erewash School Sports Partnership competition on Thursday 10th November. Joshua and Louis from Year 6 and Ruben, Daniel, Ashton, Kairell and Lawrence from Year 5 represented Longmoor fantastically in 5 close matches against Harrington, Grange, Shardlow and two teams from Dovedale. Our first match was against Grange who we beat 2:1 with two goals from Louis. Our second match was against Dovedale A who beat us narrowly 1:0. Our third game was against Harrington and we failed to take our chances despite playing really well. We didn’t think we had a chance of winning now but went into our fourth game against Dovedale B with confidence scoring three quick goals thanks to Louis, Kairell and Joshua in a 3:1 win. The last match of the tournament was against Shardlow who we beat 5:0 thanks to a goal from Joshua and four from Louis. We all gathered round to find out the final placings. Shardlow were given the fair play award. To our surprise we were one of three teams all with the same number of points. This meant the final placings would be decided on goal difference between Harrington, Dovedale A and Longmoor. Harrington were given 3rd place and thanks to our five goals in the last game we were declared as winners!! Congratulations and well played. The quality of the football was terrific. A big thank you to all the parents who came along to support the team and stayed right till the end to see Louis, our captain, collect the winners’ trophy!
