Year 4 and 5 Boys' Football Tournament

On Friday 15th March, a group of nine Year 4 and 5 children represented the school in the South Birmingham Year 4 and 5 boys competition. 

The ten teams were split into two groups. Chilcore were drawn into a group with the Oaks, Hollywood, St Bernards and St Johns. They were to play each team once. The top two teams in each group would go through to the semi-finals. 

First, Chiclote played against the Oaks and totally dominated the match from start to finish. They played some good football and managed to score four goals. This could have been more. The game ended 4v0 to Chilcote.

Then, Chilcote played against Hollywood who were a good team. Chilcote still dominated the game although Hollywood did have a couple of half chances. Unfortunately, Chilcote couldnt put their chances away and the game ended 0v0.

After that, Chilcote played against St Bernards and again dominated the game and refound their shooting boots. They scored three to win the game 3v0. 

Finally, they played against St Johns and despite being camped in their half for pretty much the whole game had to wait until the last minute to score and win the game 1v0. 

This meant that Chilcote won the group and went into the semi-finals against St Albans.

This match went the way of all the other games and Chilcote dominated the game. They did struggle to create clear cut chances but had more than enough to win the game. Unfortunately, they didnt take any. Midway through the second half St Albans managed to break out and have their first shot at goal and it went in. After that Chilcote huffed and puffed but couldnt find a goal and ended up losing 1v0. 

The boys played well all night and if they just took their chances would have made it to the final but that is football. Well done to all involved for a fantastic effort!!!
