At the start of October, 13 boys from the Swans class made the trip to Whitton Sports Centre to compete at the U11 Football Competition. Wearing our new football kit for the first time, the boys did their best against 4 other schools: Hadleigh, Shotley, Henley and Hillside. The final game against a strong Shotley side was a classic; the boys defended expertly and threw their bodies at the ball to prevent conceding. The amount of team spirit and determination was immense and we are all very proud of their performances. We finished in 4th position on 10 points. Well done boys!
The week after, it was the girls’ turn to compete at Whitton Sports Centre against 4 other schools: Clifford Road, St Mary’s Woodbridge, Causton and Rose Hill. The 8 girls from Stratford were very enthusiastic and performances improved after each match as confidence levels grew. Like the boys, the teamwork and perseverance shown was fantastic. The girls finished in 5th position with 4 points. Well done girls!
