On Monday 11th May the year 5 boys football team took part in the City League Finals at Heron Eccles Playing field. The top team from each of the four divisions in Liverpool qualified for the semi-finals and we, as winners of the Liverpool South League, made it through.
In our semi-final we played Lister Junior School. We couldn't have got off to a worse start conceding from a dubious free-kick inside two minutes. The scoreline stayed that way until the last 5 minutes of the match, and, just when we thought our luck had run out, Aaron Cummins, our superstar striker, popped up with 2 fantastic goals. We clung on to win 2-1 which meant we had qualified for the final.
The final was against Corinthian Primary (who we had already lost to in the cup earlier in the season). The match was very even, with both teams having chances. Unfortunately Corinthian got the vital goal towards the end of the first half and held on the win 1-0. The boys plugged away all the way to the end but we couldn't get that all important equaliser. In truth, Corinthian edged the match and probably deserved to win. Man of the Match Thomas Lovett pulled off a string of fine saves to keep the score at 1-0.
The boys were very disappointed to lose at the final hurdle but we still had a trophy to take back to school in recognition of winning the Liverpool South League so it was a night of mixed emotions.
All of the boys who have represented the year 5 football team this season can be very proud of themselves - they have played the game hard but in the right spirit and have had an excellent balance of a hunger to win whilst also respecting the opposition. Well done to everyone. In July we will have our presentation ceremony in school when we will award our players player of the season, managers player of the season and most improved player of the season. It is going to be a tremendously hard decision as all of the boys have performed superbly.
The following boys have all represented the year 5 boys football team this season:
Kallum Barr (captain)
In our final league game of the season we defeated Carlton House school 6-0. The boys blew away the opposition and ended the season on a really strong note. We now wait to see if we have done enough to qualify for the league finals in May. We are unbeaten in the league and finish the season with a record of:
Played 5, won 4, drawn 1.
We really hope this is enough to qualify. A big well done and thank you to all of the boys who have helped us in the league this season.

Last week we played Corinthian Primary in the quarter final of the Year 5 Cup competition. Unfortunately we were defeated 1-0 by a very strong Corinthian team. This allows us to concentrate on the league now and we have 1 final match before the Easter deadline against Carlton House.
I am pleased to report that the Under 10s boys football team finished 2014 unbeaten after two more great performances before Christmas.
First we beat a very strong Much Woolton team 4-2 after being 2-0 down. Then in our final match before Christmas we drew 2-2 with Holy Family School. That means our record as we go into 2015 is: played 5, won 4, drawn 1, lost 0.
We are hoping that we can keep this fantastic run going and will have plenty more league games before the deadline in April. We also have a cup match to look forward to against Corinthian Primary School and I am hoping that a date will be arranged for that game in the next couple of weeks.
Bye for now
