After a brilliant performance in their draw against Dane Royd last week, the Year 5 & 6s continued with a dominant display against Sandal Magna. From the first whistle to the last, the children attacked confidently. There was once again lots of great team play spreading the play from left to right with precise passing and finding positions.
The star striker on the day got himself a hat trick including a Ronaldo like dipping freekick. There was also contributions from the other strikers and midfielders with some well taken finishes.
Sandal Magna did have their chances which made the children think about how they needed to play and after a couple of scares, the children became more vocal and took back control of the game. A great performance all round which resulted in a 7-0 victory.
A massive well done to all the children who took part in the game. The children represented the school wonderfully and their attitude towards the game was great. The Durkar Devils Chairman (who came to watch the game) was very complimentary of the St James team's fluidity of play and communication.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Durkar Devils FC for allowing St James to host the game on their fields, Michael Day and Faye Geray for helping set the pitches up and running the Tuck Shop, Ben Day for refereeing the match and supporting all the children during the game and finally to all the parents who attended for their support for both teams.
