On Friday 21st April 2017, 7 chaps from Year 3 and 4 took part in a 7-a-side Football Competition at Forches Cross. We had qualified for the Trophy competition by winning our qualifying group, and the lads kept on their fantastic record of doing very well.
From six games we won three times, drew twice and lost one, scoring ten goals and conceding only two.
With their highly rated coach (Mr Wilsher) on the touchline, the boys were outplaying the opposition in most games, but a loss came when Mr Wilsher had to referee a game elsewhere and the boys kicked off without the tactical genius coaching them from the side. Fortunately, Mr Wilsher returned for the next game and normal service was restored.
This loss was to prove costly though, as a draw against the eventual winners put Exminster into second position.
Finishing strongly with a 4-0 win, Exminster rounded of the competition in style. All the boys showed great quality on the ball, off the ball, and in their sportsmanship towards the opposition.
Congratulations to all the players on your fantastic second spot finish, and thanks to all the parents who helped out.
