Soccer 7s—The Forest High School
Friday 9th June
Children from Years 5 & 6 put on a fantastic performance at The Forest High School in the Soccer 7’s tournament. The tournament consisted of them having to play three matches, with the top teams playing against each other to find 1st place.
Lydney C of E played against St. Johns, St. Whites and Berry Hill . After a shaky start, the children really showed their resilience and improved as the matches went on securing both a draw with St. Johns and after an exhilarating final game, a win against Berry Hill . We had some outstanding performances, with Zachary Kear (Class 6) scoring two goals and Finley Lane (Class 5) rounding out the hat trick. Ferdy Maguire showed great teamwork and was a key member of the team defending exceptionally.
It was a great experience for the children and they showed great sportsmanship and perseverance throughout.
