After an excellent turnout for Autumn 1 football training, the team finally made their first appearance at the Pudsey Family of Schools competition on Tuesday night.
For the first time we have appointed an official team captain. The captaincy has been awarded to a keen footballer whom for the last year has helped every week set up pitches and get out equipment for our training . This year he has also volunteered to help run the Year 3 and Year 4 coaching session. On Tuesday night he played in the Park Spring way; hard and fair. He never gave up, wasn’t put off by a slow start and kept trying leading by example and encouraging his team mates around him.
The Captain for this year is Joseph Horan. Well done.
Here is his first Captains match report:
‘On Tuesday Park Spring Primary School played 4 football games at Crawshaw. Despite the wet conditions our football team played their best in all the games. In our first game we played a very good team called Greenside, which we sadly lost 5-0.
Then we played Swinnow, which we beat 4-0 the people that scored the goals were Lins (1), Jay (2) and Joseph (1). Next we played Primrose Hill which we beat 3-1. Then finally we played Southroyd, which we beat, a lucky 1-0. Overall we came second in the first tournament and have 3 more tournaments till we find out who goes to big final at Priesthorpe High School’.
We have more games to play in November.
