Forget Euro 2016 in France, Colonel Frank Seely Academy held its own European Football Championships which was just as thrilling as the real thing. Over 50 Year 7 and 8 boys turned out for the lunchtime 5-a-side competition. Each team represented a country in the Euros and we had some great rivals battling it out against each other.
Although the home nations fought well and with Germany losing on penalties, it was Italy who were the eventual winners of the tournament, against a well spirited and well skilled Spanish team. Throughout the tournament we saw good teamwork, some great skill and a lot of fun had by both participants and spectators. Well done to all those who took part in the tournament.
Congratulations to Italy on their success.
Winners Italy – Myles Henson, Elijah Johnson, Syme Mulvany, Aaron Wainaina and Sonny Shaw. (clockwise below)
Runners-up Spain – Dylan Fuller, Ben Hewitt, Bradley Scott, Matthew Ash and Chance Bradshaw.
