It was our first league game of the season and the team were amazing; simply fantastic. The result was great; but the team spirit, support and the way the children conducted themselves was the biggest winner.
Our brilliant sport providers in school – Next Generation (Karl, Danny and Anthony) had spent their day off on Friday buying, numbering and putting the ‘Parklands’ badge onto a brand new kit. Thank you so much ! They also gave their time to coach the team and to help transport them to the game. Priceless.
Josh Pugh was Player of the Match for 6,7, 8 brilliant saves in goal, strong and fearless. Zac was a very close 2nd – running the game from the back. Jenny was a star defender who never missed a tackle. Gloire was the magician on the wing who ran quicker than Usain Bolt. Finbar played down the left; nearly breaking the posts with some vicious second half shots. With Mackenzie pulling the strings in midfield – creating 4 of the 5 goals, the team was buzzing. Sophie did the miles on the pitch chasing every cause but it was Luke that grabbed the first league goal – heading in a brilliant Mackenzie corner….. Enter super sub Jack, wow what an impression he made – scoring 4 goals; 3 with his left foot and 1 with his right. His second goal was world class’ controlling a high ball dead, before smashing the ball home!! Better luck next time to Malachi who sadly was ill before kick off.
Brilliant team – well done as Head teacher – I couldn’t ask for more….. same attitude in the next game as we expect a bumper Parklands crowd.
Thanks Mr Wilkinson for organising.
