Year 5/6 Girls Football

On Tuesday 7th November six girls from years 5 and 6 went to WNDSSP to play in a football tournament. There were twelve teams altogether divided into four groups, at this point, after playing six games we were placed 2nd. During the afternoon, all the first placed teams played a knock out as did the second and third placed. Astley played brilliantly winning 5-0 and 8-0 consecutively. A good day was had by all. Thanks goes to Mrs Starling and Mr Hill for helping escort the children for the day.
