On Friday 18th January, a mixed team of Yr5&6 boys represented Cranborne Middle School in the AFC Bournemouth community trust six-a-side tournament at Littledown. A total of 7 schools took part in the event, with the teams being split into two different groups. The format of the groups were a round robin with the winning team from each group going through to play each other in a playoff. The winning team will then represent their school in the finals day in February with the chance to represent Bournemouth in the Premier League Primary Starts School tournament which is held at Molyneux, home to Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The boys did extremely well, winning, drawing and losing one game each. The group was very tight with Cranborne finishing 2nd only on goal difference. It is worth noting that multiple coaches who were running the event, along with Mr Moseley ad Mr Phelps expressed how impressed they were with the boys' performance with local scouts keeping a keen eye on the slick football that they demonstrated.
Well done gentlemen.
