Throughout the Spring, numerous teams have taken part in Transform Trust’s football tournaments, with many schools taking part. Here are some highlights from both the girl’s and the boy’s competitions.
The girl’s tournament saw 147 girls taking part from 13 schools. The 14 teams all played excellently, with a selection of trophies and a plate to win. After many well-played matches, Parkdale won the overall cup with Pear Tree Juniors taking the runner-up spot. For the teams coming second in all of the groups, they competed for the plate. William Booth won the plate and Ashbrook Juniors were runners up. We’re so proud of all of our girls, future lionesses in the making!
Next up were our boys! Inspired by the well-played matches of our girls, they played with dedication and determination, motivated, like the girls, by a variety of trophies and a plate to win. After many exhilarating matches, Highbank won the overall cup with Parkdale taking the runner-up spot. For the teams coming second in all of the groups, they competed for the plate. William Booth won the plate and Ravensdale were runners up. We’re so proud of all of our boys that took part, and cheered each other on for every game.
We know that participation in team sports such as football, has many health benefits including heart health and circulation, stamina and bone strength. The strategies and formations needed to have a successful match are also training your brain, improving concentration and coordination. The teamwork, working together as a group and having fun all boost confidence. This is why we are passionate about offering a broad range of extracurricular activities for all of our students to enjoy. We look forward to hearing all about the events planned in the summer term as even more of our children showcase their incredible teamwork and creativity.
