A heavy 15 minute downpour just before the start of the Year 4 Football Festival at Holmer Green did little to dampen the spirits of our football squad. They started the afternoon defending well, led by Marcus, against Chalfont St Peter finishing with a 0-0 draw. Our second game against Holmer Green saw us pushing forward more, but unable to score while Harry saved well at the other end to keep the game goal less. Our third fixture was against Lent Rise and we started well with goals from Oli and Josh putting us 2-0 up. Although we then conceded a goal a Jakub shot gave us a 3-1 victory.
Against Our Lady’s we conceded our second goal of the afternoon before goals by Oli and Josh resulted in a 2-1 victory. Our final game was against St Mary’s and we played very well with Josh, Lily, Zach and Oli all going close but a defender or the goalie got in the way of every effort and we finished with a draw.
The squad should be proud of their efforts with 2 wins and three draws from 5 games.
