Woodlands Meed Awarded (informally!) Fair Play Trophy at Recent Record Breaking Football tournament as they Show Perfect Attitude in 10/10 Display!

On the 23rd April, 18 students from years 6,7 and 8 participated in the Albion Cup at The Triangle Leisure Centre in Burgess Hill.  The 6 aside tournament, organised and run by Albion in the Community, was highly competitive; with a record breaking 17 teams entering!  Schools who participated including St Marys, Cedar Centre, Oak Grove and LVS.

Woodlands Meed ‘A’ showed great commitment throughout the group stages and were easily one of the most improved teams in the whole tournament.  Through a combination of determined defending and clinical finishing, Woodlands Meed ‘A’ finished the tournament with two wins, two draws and 3 losses; a very respectable eight points from their eight games.

In their group, Woodlands Meed ‘B’ demonstrated great attacking play which made them one of the teams to watch in this tournament.  Through a mixture of pace, energy, accurate passing, overlapping runs and the reassurance of a very solid defence, Woodlands Meed B were unlucky not to qualify for the semi-finals, eventually finishing with three wins and one defeat, a total of 9 points from their four group games, only losing one game which was to the eventual winners of the whole tournament.

Both teams should be thoroughly proud of all they achieved both on and off the pitch.  They were a real credit to the school; epitomising everything that is good about football.  They may not have won the trophy, but both teams won many supporters for their style of play and conduct throughout.  We are all very very proud of you!
