Year 4 and 5 Football Final

On Thursday 19th April, nine boys from Year 4 and 5 represented Chilcote in the South Birmingham Section of the Birmingham wide competition of 7-a-side football. This was their reward for winning the local competition. The winner out of the group would progress to the next round of the competition to be held at Bodymoor Heath (Aston Villa’s training ground).

There were three teams present on the evening: Chilcote, St Bernardettes and St Johns Bosco. The teams played a round robin league where they played each other twice.

Chilcote played St Johns first and played well. They took the lead through Dylan midway through the second half but then had two lapses in concentration at the back which allowed them to score twice. This meant a 2v1 defeat in the first game.

Next, Chilcote played against St Bernardettes and dominated the first half but just couldnt break through. It looked like the second half would be the same but then Dylan latched onto a through ball and put it away first time.

In the second game against St Johns Bosco Chilcote played well again but just didnt have the cutting edge to get a goal. Then, just before the end St John Bosco scored to win the game 1v0.

In the final game Chilcote played against St Bernadettes again. Despite their best efforts Chilcote just couldnt find a goal. So it finished 0v0.

This meant that Chilcote finished second overall. A great achievement so well done to all involved!!!
