On a cold January evening the year 5/6 mixed football team made their way to Copley for the first of 3 football festivals. The children are to compete over 3 tournaments to qualify for the knockout competition.
The children had 4 games to play and started up against local rivals Holden Clough. Goals from Daniel, Luca and Tjay set the team of to a winning start with the game finishing 3-1. The second game was against Aldwyn and thanks to a great hat trick from Tjay we won 5-0. Things were going great, then we came across a very tough St Raphaels. St Raphaels took the lead but Broadoak fought back through a Luca goal and drew 1-1. Our final game was against St James who we managed to beat 1-0. Paciance and McKenzie were fantastic at the back and Molly and Leah worked hard in midfield to support the team.
3 wins and a draw in the fist tournament means that it was a great start with the second tournament only a week away.
Well done to the whole team. Keep it up.
