Year 4/5/6 Football Tournament

Today, 7 super talented footballers attended Nottingham Forest's festival of football tournament. The boys were put in group 4 of 4, each group containing 5 different local school football teams. 5 games of 8 minutes were played... 

Game 1- Old Basford WIN. 1-0 Jacob on the score sheet.

Game 2- Old Basford WIN. 1-0 Tyrell on the score sheet. 

Game 3- Old Basford draw 1-1

Game 4- Old Basford draw 0-0. 

Game 5- Old Basford WIN 1-0. Asaiah on the score sheet.


The boys came a MAGNIFICENT 2nd in their group, not losing a single game and only conceding ONCE in the whole competition. There were also displays of lovely captaincy from Asaiah and Blake, particularly when an opposing team refused to shake hands with our players following a defeat. OBS showcased themselves as great sports players, even though they didn't qualify for the semi-finals. They celebrated each others successes and have the drive and ambition to learn from the tournament and have a great upcoming football season.
