Charminster Football Tournament
Once again all the children were eager to play and we had difficulty picking our team, those who were chosen played with the same sportsmanship and fairness that we see every time from our children. Our first game was against Manor Park, the early exchanges saw Daniel showing good hands in his area and Katie showing her attacking skills and going close with 2 shots that had ricochet off the defenders. Next was Broadmayne and after a spectacular goal that rifled into the net from Toby we looked like we may have a well earned victory, only for it to be snatched away in the dying moments for another draw, 1-1. Third up was our close rivals Winterbourne, this was a much tighter game with Thomas marshalling the defense well with Eden and us thoroughly deserving the 0-0 draw. Our last game was up against the strongest team in our half, Angus was magnificent in goal keeping them down to only 2 goals, and he was helped by excellent defending from Archie and the whole team, George nearly scoring with a jinx down the wing going past 3 players to putting the ball just wide of the post. We would like to thank all parents who came to cheer on the team, especially Martha and Silas who were our mascots. Once again all the “C’s” were shown throughout by everyone, you made us proud again!
A positive, purposeful and enthusiastic atmosphere
