Boys' Football Success Matches Girls' for County Final Fixture

football-fiesta-salisburyOur girls' football team have already secured a place in the County Finals next month. The boys were then tasked with trying to do the same thing as they took to the pitches of Katherine Lady Berkeley school, hungry for that photo finish. Mrs Arnold was there, cheering on from the sidelines...

"Two Blue Coat teams took part in the Boys’ Football Tournament at KLB on Wednesday 4th November.

Blue Coat B's played 4 matches against local schools, scoring 1-0, 0-0, 0-2 and 0-2.  They were against some tough opposition but spirits remained high and they were determined through to the end.  Well done for showing such great team spirit. 

Blue Coat A's played 5 matches and won all 5 securing them a place in the semi-final against The British School.  The match resulted in a draw therefore the winners had to be decided with a penalty shootout. Blue Coat won, meaning that both Blue Coat and Old Sodbury played in the final and gained places at the County Championships.

Well done to both teams - you showed good sportsmanship and great teamwork. 

The finalists will play in the County Championships at Oxstalls in December – good luck!"
