East Birmingham Indoor Football Tournament

29 January 2010

On Friday 29th January our Year 6 Football Team played in the final stage of the East Birmingham Indoor Football Competition at Cockshutt Hill School. The prize at stake was the East Birmingham Indoor Trophy for the winning team and a trip to Villa Park for the top two teams to play in the All Birmingham Indoor Football Competition.

In November the boys had played a qualifying match against Timberley which they won 4-3 enabling them to get to this stage of the competition. The team were Aodhan (Captain), Luke (Vice-Captain), Luke P, Joseph and Robert.

After a nervous start against Gilbertstone School, we drew 2-2 and went from strength to strength beating Oldknow School and Bordesley Village School. Unfortunately we narrowly lost to Lyndon Green School 2-0. Overall the team finished Runners-Up and have qualified for the All Birmingham Finals at Villa Park in May.
