Avenue 5 – Westbourne 1 – Girls Football

Well done to the 9 girls who represented the school the the league match against Westbourne. The win for Avenue has continued our winning run in the league, which we hope to keep all season! Westbourne put up a good fight, with them being our hardest opposition yet. At half time we were 2-0 up, but we knew we needed more goals to confidently take the match. We dug deep and battled hard with our efforts being rewarded with a 5-1 win.

Well done to all the girls who took part!

Boys Football – Sutton United Mascots

On Saturday, 11 boys from Year 5 and 6 were selected to represent the school as mascots for the televised game between Sutton United and Dagenham and Redbridge. Arriving an hour before kick-off, the excitement was clear for all to see as the boys readied themselves for a few drills on the pitch. Joined by the girls Sutton United 6-a-side tournament winners, the boys started drills as Sutton United began their warm-up. With a great amount of focus, the boys were not even distracted by Jenny (the Sutton United mascot). With fans filling the stands, it was time to parade the trophy around the ground to a rousing amount of applause as each child’s name was announced over the tannoy. After that, official photographs were taken and the team was summoned to the tunnel where they were greeted by the Sutton United starting 11. With cameras in their faces, the boys strolled out with big smiles and shook the hands of the opposition players. As the players left the pitch, the cameras zoomed in on them and the team was announced live on National television. After a quick pep talk from a Sutton United coach before the next round of the competition, the team settled in with their clappers for 90 minutes of football. The atmosphere was fantastic and the boys helped with their chanting and clapping. With Sutton United eventually running out 2-1 winners. The team would like to extended their thanks to Sutton United for inviting us to the day and we hope to do you all proud in the next round!

This can vary from bouncing on a trampoline in the garden to training with your swimming team.
