The Camden inter-school Football League Tournament finished recently and both the boys’ and girls’ teams played very well and were wonderful representatives for the school. The boys’ team played consistently strongly throughout the Tournament and we’re very proud to let you know they came first out of the twenty-four schools taking part. As league winners they took part in a final championship ‘play off’ event this week against the five schools who came next in the league and again played incredibly well. They won their first three matches very confidently at 4-0, 2-1 and 6-2 and made it to the final match to compete for the championship trophy. It was a nail-biting match against another strong team, New End School, and the match ended 0-0. It then went to’ golden goal’ and first team to score won. New End got the first goal in and were awarded the cup.
Congratulations to them and to all the schools we played against, they were great competitors and it was an exciting end to a very successful schools tournament. Huge congratulations also to our amazing team, we are very proud of how they worked together and supported and encouraged each other, not just at the championship event but throughout the tournament. They showed real sportsmanship and were gracious to their competitors when they won and also when they lost. Every boy who played on the team made such a valuable contribution and really showed what happens when a team works together to achieve something.
Thank you to all the boys and the leadership shown by the Captain and each of the players as they inspired each other. A very big thank you also to our fantastic PE coach Souleymane and PE Leader Miss Knight for all their hard work coaching and encouraging the children and accompanying them to matches. They were so proud of how both teams played throughout the Tournament and are already on the hunt for next year’s teams! Thank you also to the parents who joined the children at matches, they’ve really valued your support. Well done Nathan, Sonny O'L, Harley, Frankie, Luiz, Dawit, Rymon, Aran, Sonny G, Robin, Callum and Max!
