Sancroft Church Schools Trust Football Festival

On Thursday 25th March Sancroft Church Schools Trust held a football festival at Alburgh with Denton Primary School for pupils in year 3 and 4. The festival was arranged to allow those young people who wouldn’t normally get into school teams the opportunity to take part and see how fun and enjoyable sport can be whilst also gaining a chance to represent their school. The emphasis on this event was participation.

Upon arrival the teams were taken through some football practices by three ASHS high school sports leaders. The games began well and there was some brilliant passing and goals scored by all pupils. It was fantastic to see so many of the pupils play with so much energy and enthusiasm. A lot of the games were really close; there was some excellent goalkeeping. The pupils who were not playing were encouraged to practice their football skills- passing, dribbling, shooting and speed. The stations were led by the leaders who were encouraging and supportive to all pupils.

A big thank you must go to the leaders who demonstrated their football officiating skills and also their support for the pupils was brilliant.

There were a total of 6 matches played throughout the afternoon final results were:

1=Harleston 1

2= Harleston 2

3= Alburgh with Denton 1

4= Alburgh with Denton 2
