Winning the Year 5/6 Lewisham Borough Football Finals was a very special occasion last academic year. There were 36 teams that entered the competition, so although we felt confident, we knew if would be a tough challenge. We could not wait to tell the rest of our school that we won, and were off to represent Lewisham in The London Youth Games!
Going to the Youth Games was a great experience, and we learnt a lot by playing some very talented teams. We came in 6th place overall. Although disappointed not to have medaled, we were happy with how we performed and proud to be so high up on the medal table.
When winning the borough competition, we were entered into the Millwall Regional Competition. We played our matches with lots of support from our classmates who were able to come along to watch the competition. After some brilliant results, it was announced that we had won! This was a very magical moment for the team, who have worked so hard over the last few years, and dedicated so much time to training.
We wish all the Football team, many of whom have now moved on to Secondary School lots of luck and sporting success in the future!
