Primary Schools’ Football Festival
While temperatures were not exactly soaring, the rain did hold off and the football played was of a high standard throughout our 13th Primary Schools’ Football Festival. Ten mixed teams, playing 7-a-side games on our four grass pitches stayed engaged, excited and energetic from start to finish. There was little time to rest and I am pleased to report that the referees comments were not just about the wonder goals, the brilliant goalkeeping and some magical inter-play of slick passing, but also of the excellent sportsmanship, teamwork and encouragement offered between players; a very positive vibe pervaded the afternoon. Our very own Grasshoppers ensured the home side led the way with their determination, respect for each other and the referee; all very happy to let some quality football do the talking. The spectators played their part too in an afternoon that was all about the football, the participation medals for all and the doughnuts! We are already planning for our Cricket Festival in June.
