The Mitcham Cluster held its Year 3/4 Football Festival on Tuesday 10th March 2020 at St Mark’s Academy Mitcham. Nine schools took part in this festival; Beecholme, Bond, Links, Lonesome, St Thomas, Stanford, Sherwood, William Morris and Harris Primary Merton. All schools arrived raring to go and in high spirits despite the rain looming overhead. Two leagues played across three pitches meaning teams had plenty of games. The games started with the players showing off some silky skills and attacking football to try and create a breakthrough.

This however did not dampen the children’s spirits with all attending schools itching to get started on arrival.
