Junior Sports Reports – 1st October
On Saturday 29th September, the U10 football team travelled to Foremarke Hall for their annual tournament. Every fit boy from Year 5 played a part in the teams’ success, with them eventually finishing third out of sixteen teams. Ratcliffe won all three group games, scoring 12 goals and conceding only 1. Winning the group meant that Ratcliffe played in the cup section of the competition, where they played Terra Nova; unfortunately, suffering a one nil defeat in a very close game. This meant that we played Fairfield in the 3rd and 4th place play-off. This game was played at a very high tempo, with chances at both ends, fortunately for Ratcliffe, they came out on top, winning the game 3 – 1 with a hat-trick of goals from Owen Lloyd. Goal scorers on the day were Guy Mills, Owen Lloyd (3), Tom Page(4) and 7 goals from Player of the Tournament Finley Back. Every single one of the boys did themselves, their parents and the school proud.
Many thanks to all the parents who gave their support on the day, kicking every ball and celebrating every goal.
