Well done to the y4/5 Futsal football team for their performance in the annual Futsal Football Sheffield Final held at Spring Academy on Monday 23rd January.
For some of the boys (and girl) this was the first time they had played in a competitive football event for the school. However it didn’t show!
Despite absolutely freezing conditions the team played some excellent football showing great skill and teamwork . The first match was against Bankwood Primary and with Joe on form at the front and Fiona strong in defence the team came out 5-0 winners ! With their confidence sky high the children were really looking forward to their next match against Pipworth Primary and with superb midfield play from Ben and Sam and clinical finishing from Joe they won 7-1. The team needed to win or draw their final game to progress to the final .Great teamwork from Sol and Hugo and excellent goalkeeping from Conor secured a comfortable 4-0 win and a place in the final.
After conceding an early goal to the other finalists Thorpe the team tried their upmost to get back on level terms. Following a hard tackle inside the area we were awarded a penalty and a chance to level the scores. Despite a valiant attempt by Joe the goalkeeper made a tremendous save and with time running out the opposing team ran out worthy winners.
St Wilfrids were not too despondent when they discovered that both finalists would be competing in the regional Futsal finals at Ponds Forge later in the year.
