Gateway hosted the 4th annual Year 4 football festival at Magnolia Park. This fixture allows children the opportunity to play in a friendly atmosphere with the emphasis on teamwork, skill and fairplay. There are no points, medals or cups awarded. Ten teams participated in this year’s event with each team playing 4 matches.
Gateway A played well, throughout the tournament, and all their matches were keenly contested. The boys won 2 matches and lost by the odd goal in their other two games. Will SC- Burton scored 3 goals for the team and Sam B was pleased to score as well. The boys learned some valuable lessons from this experience which they can build on next season. The B team improved with each match and gradually raised the urgency of their game. Despite losing their first three matches the boys persevered and were rewarded with a victory in their final match when Freddie Hall shot home, from close range, to the team’s delight.
A Tea: Alex C, Fred W, Henry G, George C, Oscar V-B, Sam B, W SC-B
B team: Hugh P, Toby G-K, Freddie H, Oliver B, James B, Aidan D, Hassan B
