Girls Year 3 and 4 Football team

On Wednesday this team played in a tournament at the UEA.   Mr Lightfoot would like to say how impressed he was with this group of players. From the beginning to the end of the tournament, they were all happy and helped each other to develop their footballing talents. Their sense of school identity was amazing and every single player joined in the team huddle at the beginning and end of the matches.  Everyone shared responsibility and took turns from the first whistle to the end of the tournament.   They won matches with dignity and lost others with good-grace. The high standards the players set for themselves certainly paid off and other squads, quite rightly, said they were one of the best school teams in Norwich.  From Mr Lightfoot’s coaching perspective, they were very nearly the perfect team that he could wish for and he wishes he could bottle what they displayed and use it on all other football players.  Their resilience and a true team ethos shone through in spades….

Well done to Freya, Kornelia ,Rosavell, Martha, Kate, Alaena, Sophia and Georgie.
