Yesterday evening The Vine football team played in a mini tournament in Cambridge. The children were wearing the new football kit and looked extremely proud and smart.
The first game against St Matthews A was our toughest game and we soon realised that we needed to raise our game. In the second game we played much better but had a second loss against Mayfield School. In our final group game we played against St Matthews B and finally we found our form and the back of the net, 3 times. League positions meant we had to play St Matthews B again this time the game was tighter with third place up for grabs, both sides had opportunities but the game ended up going to penalties, after both teams scoring 4 out of their first 5 it went to sudden death Micah scored the next penalty for The Vine and the pressure was back on the opposition, Josh produced a fantastic save which earned third place for us. Well done to all the team where some children were playing in their first competitive matches, and others trying out various positions, it's very hard to single out a player after they all did well but it is worth a mention that Micah was awarded a medal for being the player of the tournament due to his high energy and impact running. Finally a huge thank you to family and friends for coming along and supporting the boys.
