It is great wisdom to know how to be silent and to look at neither the remarks, nor the deeds, nor the lives of others.

U11 Football

Our U11 football team defeated Cantrell School in the final of the City Cup last night 4-1. Cantrell took a 1-0 lead very early in the game and looked very threatening, but we responded brilliantly and scored two goals inside a minute by Isaac M and Ben M. From this point on we took control of the game and early in the second half the excellent Max M-S added a brace to make it 4-1. Despite the odd attack from Cantrell, we could have added a few more goals as we played some wonderful attacking football.

We were also crowned league champions. contest-clipart-3491974-trophy

Earlier this week we played in the ISFA national finals. This was played at the beautiful St George’s Park, the training centre of the England team. The competition proved very strong and during the group phase we won 3 games out of 5 to finish as one of the best runners up to qualify for the quarter finals. Unfortunately, we lost to a very strong Ludgrove team.

Our group winners Whit Gift beat Ludgrove in the final highlighting what a tough run we had.

To finish in the top 8 of a national tournament was a brilliant achievement and the team should feel very proud of themselves.

Our season has not quite finished; next Friday we compete in the quarter finals of the County Cup. The treble would be nice!

U10s Football
The U10s football team lost 1-0 vs Brocklewood in the Nottingham Schools’ FA tournament final yesterday. We had plenty of chances to score but did not manage to convert any of these. The opposition scored directly from a corner in what turned out to be a fairly scrappy match. We played on a small pitch at the Forest Academy Ground which made it difficult to pass the ball around.

The highlight of the day was the tour of the City Ground before the final. This was a great experience for our players as they saw the boardroom, learned the history of various trophies won by Forest and walked round the pitch.

Special mention should go to Joshua L, Luca V and Noah B as they represented the U10s team in our final, then the U11s in their final (their 3rd time playing in 2 days). They were also spotted by talent scouts who were watching and have invited them to trials this summer. Perhaps one or all of them are potential candidates for student of the week?

Congratulations to Abdullah S on achieving his black belt in Karate.
