Well it is that time of year again, the start of a new football season! This is the chance for all of those children who play football in the playground during lunchtimes and break times, in the park at the weekend, or even for an outside of school club; to come together to represent our school.
I couldn't be more excited to be coaching the Year 3/4 Boys Football club, not only because I love playing football myself, but it also brings back those wonderful memories of when I was playing football for Furzeham and Mr Ward was my football coach (obviously only a couple of years ago!)
The Year 3/4 boys had their first football match of the year, and as a team on, Tuesday 4th October. Although the score didn't go our way, I could see the enjoyment playing this game gave each and every one of those children. Considering this was the first time they had played together as a team, they were all fantastic. The teamwork they displayed was indescribable, the encouragement throughout the whole game was out of this world and the sportsmanship was like nothing I had ever seen before! As their coach, I admired the way in which they all dealt with coming away at the end of the game with a loss, a very valuable lesson in life, but something for us to work towards and to come back fighting even stronger!
Well done boys! We are all so very proud of you :)
A huge thank you to all of the parents and friends who came out to support our boys!
See you all next Monday, for our second game of the season.
