Football County Finals Chelmsford


On Tuesday 24th January we took a boy’s football team from Upper One, Lower Two and Upper Two to the county finals in Chelmsford. They played really well in the pool stage winning two games and drawing one. This put them through to the semi final which proved very tense and went to penalties. Unfortunately, we just lost but the boy’s were a real credit to the school.
