Mini World Cup

Mini World Cup

In honour of the World Cup the Academy has this week been hosting its very own Mini World Cup. There was some entertaining football played by all the teams who participated and some brilliant goals scored. Congratulations to all teams who took part. The Year 7 Competition Final went to a dramatic penalty shoot-out, which was won by the Balotellitubbies! Borussia Teeth won the Year 8 Competition with two goals by Billy Deniz in the final!

On Wednesday it was the year 9 and 10 World Cup. The year 9 Final between Perform and Make finished 2-2 and after extra time finished 3-3, meaning it would be settled by a penalty shoot-out with Make winning 3-1 on Penalties! The year 10 final also went to a penalty shoot-out between Manchester Boys and Gillian, Audrey and Danielle after the game finished 1-1. 2 penalty saves in the Shoot-out from Goalkeeper Jordan Latham meant that Manchester Boys were the winners of the Year 10 Mini World Cup!
Well done to all the teams who took part! Over the two days of football we saw some highly entertaining matches, superb goals and outstanding sportsmanship shown by everyone who took part! A Big thank you to our Year 10 Sports Leaders Natasha Frain, Mitchell Roche, Jordan Wright, Liam Southward and Kieran Jones who refereed all of the matches.
