Footballing Fireworks for Year 3 and 4

With the clocks going back an hour, The Angmering School floodlights were switched on for an evening of Year 3 and 4 football.  6 teams from across the locality played each other in a round-robin competition that saw 20 children from EPJS delight spectators with some fabulous football.

The Year 4 team dominated the evening and scored a hatful of goals on their way to the trophy, and their Year 3 counterparts gave a strong account of themselves against older opposition. The highlight of the evening was the EPJS derby in which the 3's and 4's battled out the game of the tournament - although the Year 4 edged the encounter by a single goal - the whole game was played in the Year 4 penalty area and only desperate defending and a slice of luck kept the Year 3's at bay.

Vinni said, “We had a fun time playing football and we scored lots of goals. Vinni, Charlie, Oliver, Arthur and Joey all scored in the tournament, everyone played really well and we came home with the winning trophy!”; Zac added, “It was really fun, we didn’t lose or tie any games, I’d want to do it again! – you get the opportunity to represent the school - you should.”;  Ralph continued, “It was great fun, I hope that all the other schools had fun as well. It was great fun when we scored our goals and it was fun seeing my team-mates from Worthing Town playing against me for St Margaret’s”; Cole went on to say, “it was an enjoyable day, it was very hard but also really good. My highlight was that II tackled one of the Georgian Garden’s players to stop a goal!” 

Zac in Year 3 said, "I think we played really well and we tried our best!"; Grayson added, "we scored some great goals and we did some great defending."

Thanks to the fabulously vocal travelling supporters who not only cheered on the team, but transported the children and wash the kits; Mr Gwynn and his Sports Leaders for running the events; Mr Smith for master-minding the Year 4 tactical approach and a group of fabulous footballers from across the locality who played with smiles and showed what sport should all be about!
