the first ever Wickersley Partnership Trust Year 7 and 8 Football Tournament took place at the Gainsborough Academy. Year 7 A and B teams competed from Gainsborough Academy, Wickersley, Rawmarsh and Clifton Schools. Year 8 A and B teams competed from Gainsborough, Wickersley and Clifton.
The astroturf pitch was busy with leaders from Mr Gibson’s group who set up the pitches and equipment, refereed and kept records, and handed out the certificates and medals at the end. The attitude of the Gainsborough leaders was excellent.
After nearly two hours playing the boys were exhausted and frozen on a very cold night. Gainsborough Year 8 A team deserve special mention for earning a thrilling point by drawing in their final match against Clifton 4 – 4, after scoring from the half way line in the dying seconds of the match. Nearly 120 players competed during the evening.
Wickersley were outright winners in Years 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b groups.
Rawmarsh were second in Year 7a and b groups.
Clifton were third in Y7b group and 4th in Y7a group.
Gainsborough were third in Y7a group and fourth in Y7b group.
Clifton were second in Y8 a and b groups.
Gainsborough were third in Y8 a and b groups.
The competitive spirit and intense attitude were great to see. Well done to all you played and led!
