You may be aware that the school now has representation at P1 and P2 stage due to a couple of very willing parents who have teamed up with the existing football set up to provide training and match opportunity for our youngest pupils. I received the following report from a recent festival which took place at Millburn Academy. Excellent to see the kids starting out so young and with big smiles on faces!
“There were 16 teams on 8 pitches playing 5 min games and then rotating to the next pitch. It was very fast moving with no goalkeeper meaning that children played and no one stood still! A great model which I aim to adopt and train with the P1/2’s.
We had 2 teams entered into our first festival.
Team 1 – Caleb, Sam, Cian, Ryan, Leo
Team 2 – Bailey, Harry D, Jackson, Ruaraidh, Riley
There were many goals scored and both teams played amazingly well having only had 2 training sessions previous with a lot of fun expressed on their faces.
We made some new connections with other school coaches and will look to organise our own friendly games which we will look forward to”.
