Annual U-11 football tournament hosted by Churcher’s Juniors

Churcher’s College Junior School hosted their annual U11 7 a-side Football Tournament and with 11 teams taking part the stage was set for a fantastic event – it didn’t disappoint!

With a total of 55 matches being played in a round robin format, the podium placed teams changed on regular occasion and going into the final round there were 4 teams in contention for the win.In the end it came down to the CCJS A Team beating Alton School in their final match to confirm Prince’s Mead as the overall winners with Churcher’s in second place and St Edmunds in third.

Churcher’s A team turned up ready to play a tough tournament but one that they knew they could win, having beaten almost every other team recently. The first match was against PGS and we came through well with a win, then came Oakwood where we experienced our first loss. As the games came through we went through a rollercoaster of emotions and results, winning or drawing most of our games we weren’t making our lives easy. Then came Churcher’s B, rivals and classmates all on the same pitch, it was going to be a good game and it didn’t disappoint, although under a huge amount of pressure Churcher’s B defended in numbers and defended well, with Churcher’s A unable to fine the net it ended 0-0. After a final few games Churcher’s A had given it everything, and due to earlier results, they now were reliant on other results elsewhere.

With the games ended it was up to Mr Forbes to announce the results, as the other teams were announced it came down to two and Churcher’s A had achieved a well-deserved second place. Well done to all the teams who took part.
