Year 7 Hull Boys Football Tournament
2nd February 2018
We were meant to have 7 of the team play but of the 7 that we originally had we started up with only 5 for the tournament; Kieran Gawthorpe (gk), Alfie Green, Will Bennett, Adam Stockhill and Jacob Wilson.
These 5 deserve a massive amount of credit as there was a lot against them before we started and a lot of them had not played together before but we started the tournament with good spirits in the same group as St Mary’s and the tournament was run by St Mary’s who were one of the best teams there - we would play them first. After going 1-0 down and then 2-1 down the team showed an immense amount of spirit to eventually win the game in the last minute 3-2 which was an amazing start against a great team. Subsequently we went on to win the group stage with a win of 4-0 and a draw in the final game to take us to a 3 way battle to see who won the tournament.
After losing the first game 5-0 to an outstanding Malet Lambert side we picked ourselves up only a matter of minutes later to beat Sirius North 2-0 with thanks to a special but rare goal from Alfie Green! We eventually finished 2nd in the tournament out of 12 schools in Hull with the best teams and the boys have been given medals for their achievements, they was praised to the heavens from staff and we are still incredible proud of them and hope we can take that into the next game. The boys were incredible and showed a great amount of teamwork to perform the best we’ve seen them play.
