The school football team played its second match on Saturday 15th, against Buckstone. We had 14 players which was a fantastic turn out.
Once again we were playing against a group of players who have been together as a team for a few years. However the pupils responded to the challenge well and after a difficult first ten minutes, they settled into the game and managed to play some nice passing football.
The match finished with a deserved 11-0 win for Buckstone, who played well throughout.
It’s good to see so many people representing the school and showing committment and effort. It may be a while before the team start to win matches, but they are developing well together and most importantly of all, enjoying their football!
We have arranged a match v Newcraighall PS this Saturday. Good luck to all those involved – letters have been sent out to pupils who are playing. Anyone who is not playing this week will definitely play in the next match.
