A couple of weeks ago, the Year 6 football team competed in the Poulner Football Tournement amongst many teams in Hampshire. With 5 teams in our group, we had a lot of competition, particularly with one of them being last year’s finalists Abertswood.
Firstly, we plated Foxhills. Possibly our nerves overcame us, however the opposition were in good form and together we played out an exciting game which finished 0-0.
In the second game, we played against our rivals Brockenhurst; again fighting for a 0-0 draw with our heads held high.
Up next game Abbotswood, the game we were dreading the most, yet we still had confidence in our team as always. Unfortunately, we ended up losing 4-0, however we did not let this dampen our spirits.
In our final game we played tremendously well and walked away with a 1-0 win, with some excellent goal keeping from Woody and a great goal scored by James.
Overall, it was a great day for Hordle and although we ended up finishing 3rd in our group and didn’t progress to the quarter finals, we really bonded as a team and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
