Year 4&5 Boys and Girls Football Tournament
Thursday 21st March
The year 4 and year 5 boys football team represented Chilwell Croft at the Aston District football tournament held at Goals Perry Barr. Chilwell were placed in a group with four other schools and they were, St Claires, St Edmunds, Calshot primary and Welford primary school. There were two groups in total and the top two would progress onto the semi finals. After picking up a crucial first game win against St Edmunds, the boys then went onto to beat Calshot, but then struggled to score against St Claires ending in a 0-0 draw. However it was then the group decider, Welford and Chilwell had both been undefeated in the group so far, meaning the match with Welford would decide who went through in 1st or 2nd place. Chilwell Croft narrowly lost the match and finally suffered a defeat, nevertheless it was onto the semi finals! The 1st placed school in the other group was Great Barr primary, after conceding an early goal Chilwell did brilliantly to reply with a goal almost immediately after making it 1-1, but then Great Barr showed there resilience and composure in front of goal, going on to score another 3 quick goals, Chilwell had chances to score but it just wasn’t to be. A huge achievement nonetheless for the students of Chilwell especially as some of the boys haven’t represented the school before.

The following week it was the girls tournament, the same format as the previous week except this time Chilwell Croft were in a group with only 3 other schools, they were Beeches Primary school, St Edmunds and St Patricks. The first fixture was against St Patricks in which Chilwell girls came back from 1-0 down to win 2-1, moving onto the second fixture a tightly fought 0-0 against Beeches Primary. The third and final fixture of the group stage was a top two clash, Chilwell vs St Edmunds, the girls played tremendously and got the win, meaning they had progressed through into the semi finals in 1st place and undefeated. However the semi final was against Great Barr primary school, Chilwell conceded an early fluke of an own goal and then persisted to pile on the pressure but Great Barr’s goalkeeper had a fantastic game, and they hung on to defeat Chilwell 1-0. Very frustrating for Chilwell’s boys and girls who went out at the same stage and to the same school, however like the boys team, some of these girls haven’t represented the school before so all in all another huge achievement for the students and the school.Back to News
