Boys Football Team reach the quarters!!
Year 5/6 Kids Cup Football Competition – Play Football, Tulketh
Thursday 5th October was the day of the annual Kids Cup Football Competition for the Preston region. The Broughton boys had played a game against St Anthony’s on Monday night and drawn 3-3 so were in reasonable spirits going into the competition. We were in a group of 5 with Eldon, Brookfield, St Stephen’s and Barnacre Road. We got off to a flyer beating Eldon 2-0 and it should have been more J. Over the next three games we got a win (Barnacre: 3-1), a draw (St Stephen’s: 2-2) and a defeat (Brookfield: 2-4). We then got through to the preliminary quarter final stage. Here we met St Andrew’s and they were just that little bit stronger than us and edged through 2-0. However, a special mention goes to Lucas Procter in goal who was outstanding in our final defeat, making at least 5 top class saves. Also, to Jed Anderson. Only in Year 5 and poured out his heart and soul in every performance, a performance that typified the ethos we try and produce in all sports at Broughton. Well done Jed.
Mr. Bird’s Comments: “I was so proud of all the lads’ efforts on the day. We never gave up and the fact that a tear or two was shed at the end, shows how much they care. Let’s press forward now and have a good league and cup campaign.”
