KS2 Football Tournament

On Friday 5th January, Newton Longville School football team travelled to the MK Dons dome for their first fixture of the new year. It was a very cold afternoon but the whole team were excited about the tournament. We played in a group of 4 schools so played 3 matches.
Dhoeton was, without doubt, our player of the tournament with his fantastic goalkeeping skills. However, the whole team played well. Elena, Lewis and Drew were very strong in defence and also made attacking runs with Drew scoring a cracking goal from near the halfway line. Luke and Daniel held a solid midfield helping to defend and attack. Meanwhile Ben and Hadley made some excellent attacking runs and were unlucky not to score. 
Unfortunately we did not make it through to the next round of the tournament. However, the team's spirits are high and we are now focusing on training and the next matches in February.
