Myself (Mr Wanless) and Mr Honour were so proud of the U11 boys football team who represented Parkside in today’s regional tournament at Watford FC’s training ground – The Dome.
The attitude and commitment of everyone was outstanding, they battled so hard and never gave up in any of the games they played throughout the morning.
Overall, the boys finished 3rd in their group, having won 3, lost 2 and drawn 2 but they must remember that those two games they lost the scores were only 2-1 and 1-0, so keep your heads up boys we still have lots more fixtures to take part in!
Captain’s thoughts by Barney McKoy – On Tuesday, we travelled to Watford’s training ground with confidence of winning. We played 7 games overall, winning 3, drawing 2 and losing 2. At times, it was tough but we kept going into every game with passion and confidence. I thought all of us played well and gave everything as a team, who are new to playing with each other. We eventually finished 3rd in our group which I think was really unlucky but on the whole I am so proud of my team and it means a lot to be captain of this team in my final year at Parkside.
