On Monday 8th December, Bromsgrove Football Academy hosted its 2nd annual Primary Football Tournament.
In total, eight teams played in the Under 9 and Under 11 event.
Although it was a friendly tournament, the players were determined and the competition fierce.
After a win and two narrow defeats, Bromsgrove under 9s won the 3rd place play off final 3 :0 against St Andrew’s. The highlight of the match was a fantastic, weaving, run and deft chip to open the scoring, by Alex Swan.
All the players did exceptionally well: Alot, Harry and Link were playing in their first matches for the school.
The Under 11 team again came so close to winning the tournament, this time beaten narrowly in the final by Shrewsbury school.
All the players should be proud of their achievements and have improved massively this term. I’m sure that, with the same determination and hard work on the training pitch, the silver medals will soon turn gold!
On behalf of the Football Academy, I would like to thank the Primary Parents Group for all the support that the football teams have received this year. Your assistance has been invaluable.
