Today, Mr Wilcox and Danny took a team of Year 4 boys and a team of Year 4 girls to a pyramid football tournament run by Ferndown Middle School. We played against Parley and Hampreston, and the winner of the tournament will go forward to represent our pyramid at the Dorset Youth Games.
The boys team played four games:
Won 3 – 0 vs Hampreston – Goals from Blake, Joe and Tobie.
Won 3 – 0 vs Parley – Goals from Blake and Tobie (x2)
Won 1 – 0 vs Hampreston – Goal from Joe
Drew 0-0 vs Parley
The girls team also played 4 games:
Drew 0-0 vs Hampreston
Won 1-0 vs Parley – Goal from Rose
Won 1-0 vs Hampreston – Goal from Rose
Lost 0-2 vs Parley
The end result was that both the boys and girls both won their tournament, which means we go forward to the Dorset Youth games. This was incredibly impressive for the girls, with some of the players never playing for the school before, such as Kiera in goal who kept 3 clean sheets.
Boys – Charlie (GK), Henry (C), Alfie, Joe, Dylan, Blake, Harry M, Tobie
Girls – Kiera (GK), Edith (C), Amelia T, Daisy, Pippa, Rose, Evie
It was a very well organised tournament where all the children played with enthusiasm and excitement. Great to see good sportsmanship and the teams showing each other respect at the end of each game. Brilliant effort by all players. The girls team bonded well and showed real determination. A great performance by the boys.
Well done Ferndown First School.
It would be great to see a team photo of the winning girls team too. Thanks to Mr Wilcox and Danny for supporting and encouraging both teams.
