On Tuesday 21st November 2017 The Raynes Park Cluster Y3/4 Football Festival was staged at Raynes Park High School. The festival was extremely well attended with 9 out of 11 cluster schools represented, with Poplar Primary even bringing a B team.
With the event being a festival and no offical scores being recorded, this allowed all players to play without inhibition and just enjoy their football without the pressure of qualifying in the top four at the group stages.
Matches were 10 minutes in duration, providing amply opportunity for all attending children to be some considerable game time throughout the afternoon. In addition to this, it was fantastic to see all competing schools score some sublime goals against each other. Some of these were through thunderous individual efforts, as well as a result of some intricate team support play.
Many thanks to all of those in attendance that helped to create a brilliant atmosphere, which demonstrated some fantastic sportsmanship and respect between the teams. One school that really stood out however in terms of their respect and positive attitude no matter the final result was Poplar and they received the most votes for this competitions Refspect award. Well done guys!
Finally, a big thank you must also go to Raynes Park High, for the use of their facilities as well as the sports leadership team who gave up their free time to help out and refereed the matches with diligence. Thank you all!
