On Friday 4th December The Whitehaven Academy held a 5 aside football festival for year 4 pupils from schools in the surrounding area. The event was ran by Commando Joe and featured 8 teams altogether. Teams from Valley, Monkwray, St James’, Bransty and St Bridgets spent the morning in the sports hall competing against each other in 2 group stage formats.
The teams were split in to 2 groups of 4 initially with teams finishing 1st and 2nd in each group moving in to their own group whilst teams finishing 3rd and 4th also went in to their own group. There was some superb football played from all teams and even better than they all played smiles on their faces.
The eventual winners were St Bridgets 1 who racked up a points total of 18 after winning every game throughout the morning, congratulations to them and a huge well done to all of the other teams who received a certificate for their efforts.
Look out for more events coming up next year from Commando Joes and The Whitehaven Academy.
