Well done to the boys who took part in the annual 5-a-side Football tournament at the Sands Centre on Saturday morning. It was a long morning with lots of waiting but the boys were very patient and very well behaved throughout.
In terms of results, we were disappointed. We were drawn is a tough group with Longtown, Inglewood, Saint Patrick's & Saint Margaret Mary's. We suffered two narrow defeats in our first games to Longtown (0-1) and Saint Patrick's (2-3) and then managed a narrow victory against Saint Margaret Mary's (2-1). Our final group game saw us lose 3-0 to Inglewood, who were an excellent side.
On the whole, the boys gave a good account of themselves and enjoyed much of the experience. We must also say a big thank you to the parents and siblings who came along to support the team.
