National level for boys’ football team

Well done to our Year 8 boys’ football team who have done fantastically well by playing at national level.
Unfortunately, the boys just missed out in the last 16 of the national competition game at Benfield School in Newcastle with a very close 5-4 result.
They have done so well in both the national and county cups. We wish them well in their next county cup game.
