Football Tournament Victors!
21st March 2015
With only one team of 6 players and no substitute, Ellingham pulled off a tournament win against all the odds!
Whilst other schools fielded several teams, or a single team with several substitutes, the Ellingham six had to play every game flat-out with no rest or any replacement for injury in hard-fought games. Game after game, they gave their all, selflessly passing the ball to ensure goals were scored for team benefit and not individual glory.
Scoring over 20 goals, and conceding only 2, it was an superb team effort. All of the players represented our school in an outstanding manner and well-deserved this magnificent tournament win.
Thanks to Miss Harris at Seahouses Middle School for hosting the tournament for local First Schools, and to her fantastic Young Sports Leaders for their excellent support.
