Football Borough Finals

On a very wet and windy, Friday 7th December our year 6 boys football team headed out to compete against fifteen other schools from across Merton at the Year 5/6 Best Team Football Borough Finals.

It was already a fantastic achievement for the team to reach this stage, after finishing in the top four from their cluster qualifier.

After drawing Bishop Gilpin, Liberty and William Morris in our group it was time to get going with the matches. The team played some amazing attacking football, but just could not get the ball in to the net – in all 3 group games!! Drawing all these games meant that they finished 3rd in the group; they would now be playing for 9th to 16th position.

Our quarter final match finished in another draw and it went down to penalties. Unfortunately we lost 3-2 in the shoot-out. The team did not let this get them down

and they went out to play their last two games like they were their first.








I am extremely proud of the team (and of our very wet supporters, watching in the rain). You play with such team spirt showing how resilient we are at Poplar!!
