Rotary secondary schools football tournament
20 May 2019
Report by Mr Faulkner
A great time had by all at the football 7 a side.
As is the case at this period of the year when time has run out on the football season and many fine players are looking forward to a rest. Yet some young athletes are always hungry for more and this often comes in the form of the fast and furious seven a side tournaments.
So, there was no time to waste in such a competition held at the UCLan sports arena. The squad of Year 7 Priory players got stuck in straight away, playing with gusto and passion. Every pass, every shot, every tackle counts in such a short period of lung busting time during each game.
The entire Year 7 Priory squad gave 110% effort during a hot and long day of non-stop competition. In the end it was only goal difference that stopped us from progressing to the finals in the late afternoon sun.
The Priory players were of course disappointed for not getting into the final BUT it has to be stated that all of them performed in a competitive yet sporting manner. They represented Priory perfectly and should be proud of themselves, Mr Sanderson and I certainly were!
Team: A Evans, C Clarke, M Stuart, K Fletcher, A Robinson, L Cawood, J Singleton, J Thompson, T Russell, J Eastham, O Snape, C Mitchell, S Podmore-Nappin, J Goodwin, T Stergiou, A Meed, C Heaton
