On Thursday 5th October St James played away at Mackie Hill. It was a very even first 10 minutes with attacks going back and forth. William and Jack were terrifying Mackie Hill's defence with their pace and team work. It was William who then broke the deadlock after some great midfield work by Jayden.
The togetherness of the team was apparent to see with all the children celebrating the first goal. After this the team were great in confidence and began to dominate the game. The children found space and thought more about their passing, making the pitch as big as possible.
Jack then scored 2 brilliantly crafted goals before completing his hat-trick after quick thinking from Jacob in goal, playing "old school" route one football when Mackie Hill pushed their players forward. Ben then rounded off the scoring with a simple tap in after more great team play.
Another win and a brilliant performance from all the children involved. Eliza and Toby controlled the midfield, Alexander and Callum were confident at the back, Mattie once again being confident in goal. The whole team played for each other and also supported each other.
The children once again represented the school brilliantly and William's comment of "it doesn't matter about what the score is, we're here to have fun and learn" sums up the attitude of the children.
One very happy teacher to once again see some wonderful football. Well done!
