Whitehouse Common Football Team took part in the AVFC Premier League School's Football Tournament today.
We played brilliantly against some stern opposition. First up was The Shrubbery who we beat convincingly 3-0. Next up was St. Joseph's who beat us 3-2 in a close encounter which we were unlucky to lose. Banner's Gate were dismissed with a 4-0 win followed up by a 4-1 win over Blackwood.
The two clean sheets were especially impressive due to the fact the goals were huge! Well done to Felix in goal.
We waited nervously to see if our 10 points were enough to see us through for our group. Success! We were through to the Semi-Finals. The boys groaned when they heard we had been drawn against Little Sutton (the best performing team in the group stage). Despite our nervous facing such strong opposition we stepped out on the pitch for the Semi Final match.
10mins later the whistle blew for extra time both teams having scored a goal. We went at it in the last stages of the match but unfortunately Little Sutton prevailed (they went on to win the whole tournament).
We are very proud of our efforts and have shown we have improved greatly since our first match of the season against Four Oaks. Things are looking good for the future.
That was our last football match until the second spring term due to the weather and light. We will pick up the league fixtures and cup matches then.

Over the last 2 years the Eco Team have worked together with our partner school, Hollyfield Primary. Last week we Skyped Hollyfield and spoke directly to their Eco Council.
It was very exciting and good fun. The children introduced themselves, and we were also able to introduce our visitors from Mexico to Hollyfield.
Once the introductions were complete, we agreed to work together on 2 projects. Firstly we shall visit Hollyfield on 12 January 2016 and deliver our used stamp collection to them. Then we invited Hollyfield to join forces with us for the Spring Clean for the Queen event in March 2016.
