SDCC Y5 & 6 Football Festival 23.11.21
Thank you to all the schools for attending the Y5 & 6 football festival at Stoke Damerel Community College. We were fortunate (again!) that the sun was shining and it was perfect conditions. Students from 7 primary schools took part in a girls and a boys tournament, competing against the other schools in a round robin format. There were some fantastic football skills on display and it was great to see all the students getting the opportunity to enjoy playing competitive football again after a difficult couple of years!
In the girls’ competition, there were some really closely fought games between Montpelier, Elburton, Hooe and Compton CofE, however it was Eggbuckland Vale that led the way by winning all of their matches and only conceding 1 goal! In the boys’ competition, there were lots of matches that could have gone either way with only 1 goal separating them. College road and Sherford Vale came close to the top spot, however Elburton managed 4 wins out of 5 giving them 1st place overall. A massive well done to all the players that took part, it was great to see so many enthusiastic, hard-working students enjoying football.
Thanks also to the brilliant SDCC Sports Leaders that helped to set up, run the competitions and referee the matches.
