Albion in the Community: Working together to create opportunities! Footballers find their feet at 5 star tournament!

On Monday 13th May, 17 students travelled to The Triangle Leisure Centre in Burgess Hill for the years 6,7,8 football tournament run by Albion in the Community.

Due to the popularity of this competition, we were able to field two sides, complete with subs.

Woodlands Meed A. found themselves in a very tough group which pitted them against previous winners such as St Mary’s and Bowden House.  However, the teamwork and togetherness is to be admired, as they fought from the first to the last minute of these matches.  This hard work was then rewarded as Woodlands Meed achieved two wins in their last three matches, including a 5-0 goal fest against Grove Park.  Our top goal scorers during the tournament were Harvey with 5, and Ethan and Aaron with two goals apiece.

Woodlands Meed B. were also an absolute credit to the school; demonstrating a steely determination and great sportsmanship throughout. 

In their group, they found themselves competing against schools such as Lindfield, Grove Park, Angmering and Brantridge.  Again, it was a tough group but the whole squad applied themselves superbly throughout, with highlights including a 5-0 win against Grove Park, matching the achievements of our A team, and then earning the bragging rights as they beat our A team 1-0 in the penultimate match of the tournament.  Goal scorers for our B team included; Nathan C with two, Skeff with three, and Tom, Toby and Oscar with one goal each.

We are very proud of all of our students who participated in this tournament.  However, special mention must go to:

1. Ethan T (Woodlands Meed A)

For his continued support of his teammates, playing in goal when required, leading by example and thoughtful play throughout.

2. Harry M (Woodlands Meed A)

For some fantastic saves, enthusiastically playing in any position asked and positively encouraging his teammates throughout.

3. Toby G (Woodlands Meed B)

For his never say die attitude, encouragement throughout, composed finishing and sportsmanship displayed without prompts.

Well done to all our footballers, we could not be prouder of you!
