Springfield Football Tournament

I am writing about the Springfield Football Tournament which was on Tuesday 17th April 2012 at Springfield Primary School.

The football team had practiced for many weeks before hand. After the coaches Mr. Simpson and Mr. Archibald had gone over everything we would need to be a good football team, then it was time for the tournament.

At the tournament there where three categories; small schools, middle schools and large schools. Small Schools had to have twenty five or less pupils, middle schools had to have between twenty five and sixty pupils and large schools had to have over sixty pupils.

In small schools there were Springfield, Hightae and Hottsbridge, in the middle schools there were Applegarth A, Applegarth B, Brydekirk, Cummertrees, Kirkpatrick Fleming, St Columbus and St Mungo, and in the large schools were Eaglesfield, Elmvale, Hoddom and Newington.

On the way to Springfield we got lost. Soon all the other teams started following us. Mr. Simpson ended up asking a women pushing a pram where the school was, she told us and was very polite.

When finally got there we set up beside the pitch we were playing on.

When playing Applegarth A, one of the boys in my team went and ran through the most  muddiest patch on the entire football pitch and lost his shoe in the mud. We all laughed when he spent the rest of the game trying to get his shoe back out of the mud.

One of our best goals was the one that one of the girls scored. An impotant thing is that this goal was scored when the team’s captains shot was caught by the oppositions goalie. Luckly the goalie just sent it back when the girl kicked it and it went to the back of the net.

In the end Cummertrees won, Kirkpatrick Fleming came 2nd and Brydekirk/St Mungo came 3rd.

Springfield put on great hospitality and it was an excellent afternoons worth of football and I hope it continues for many years to come because it was great fun and it was really fairly split (when making the catogories).
