The year 6 footballers played their first football match of the new year in a friendly against Hovingham Primary School. The team were a bit rusty which was to be expected but as the game wore on the performance got better and better. Although the team lost 3-2 there were a lot of positives to draw from the game and I am sure that the team will get back to winning ways very soon.
The girls’ football team have started the New Year with a bang beating Bramham Primary School 5-2. The team are going from strength to strength and are improving with every game. They are a real credit to themselves and the school and special well done to Toni who scored 3, Abi and Sian who scored a goal apiece.
The Year 4 footballers put in some fine performances at the Leeds United Foundation 6 a side tournament held at Carr Manor High School. The team worked hard and played some good football in all 6 of their matches. They won 3, drew 1 and lost 2 -most importantly they all enjoyed themselves and showed great team spirit throughout the afternoon.
15 Children from year 4,5 and 6 were selected to represent the school in a friendly tournament held at Wath High School in Rotherham on Thursday 1st December 2016. The children were chosen because of their attitude, commitment, ability and behaviour. It was a fantastic afternoon with both teams putting in some great performances. The children were a real credit to themselves and the school and whilst the results didn’t all go our way, the players worked incredibly hard and gave a great account of themselves.
Year 4 march on to the next round of the Datacable Cup with a tremendous 4-1 win against St. Josephs Primary School Wetherby.
Well there’s not much I can say other than what a fantastic performance! The year 4 footballers really did shine, they played brilliant football from start to finish and all involved were exceptional.
Allerton took the lead within the first 5 minutes and there was never any doubt as to who was going to win. It didn’t come easy though as St. Jospeh’s put in a great performance but Allertons work rate, attitude and team work prevailed.
The year 6 football team took part in the Leeds United Foundation Road to Wembley tournament which saw 14 local schools fight it out for a spot in the next round. Unfortunately Allerton didn’t progress any further but they can be proud of the way that they performed and they gave a very good account of themselves.
