On Friday 20 April the U9 Boys Football Team headed to Bilton School for the Rugby and District Level 2 Primary Football Competition.

The games were short and sharp so the boys had to settle down to business quickly, which they did. Their first game was against St Oswald’s, good speed from midfield players George Bell and Matthew Thomas helped get the ball to George Crowfoot waiting up front to put away 2 goals in the game.

The second game against The Revel proved to be a little bit more tricky, a stronger team with solid defence meant that George Bell and George Crowfoot were just not able to get the ball in to the net. Thankfully Josh Gorbutt was able to put a stop to any attacking play from The Revel, keeping the score at 0-0.

The final game was against Riverside Academy, they had some strong attacking players with great pace so Marco Rodriguez-Hernandez and Tom Ferguson had to be tight in defence and Josh Gorbutt alert in goal. Tom Ferguson put in some solid tackles to intercept the ball and quickly counterattack passing the ball to Matthew Thomas who was able to convert his shot to a goal. After a number of chances George Bell finally saw one of his shots go in to the back of the net too.

A great team effort by all boys who conducted themselves well and were a credit to the school. They were crowned Rugby and District Small School Champions winning the Level 2 Tournament and will now go on to represent Rugby at the Level 3 Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire School Games.
