On Saturday 10th March, children from Years 5 and 6 represented our school in a football tournament organised by JB Sports. We entered four teams - Horncastle A, B, C and D.
All of our teams played with great competitive spirit and won numerous games.
Each of them finished either first or second within their league, out of 19 teams overall, so progressed through to the quarter finals. A brilliant achievement in itself!
Horncastle A played a toughly fought game against Skegness Juniors A with great chances both ends; however, the game finished 0-0 and had to go into extra time. A winner could not be decided so the game went into penalties. It was tense for all involved but eventually Skegness Juniors A won meaning Horncastle A were knocked out. Horncastle D had another strong team performance against Alford A but unfortunately lost their game 2-0. At the same time, Horncastle B had to play Horncastle C in a tightly contested game (see pictures). Horncastle B came out on top, winning 2-0. They progressed through to the semi-finals and ended the competition in a respectable 4th place.
All of the children involved were hugely passionate about the achievements of their team! They showed dedication and commitment throughout all of their games. Overall, a great team effort! Well done to all involved.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Pemberton, Mr Cotton, Mr Janney and Mr Chambers for managing our teams. Your help and support is very much appreciated.
