Fressingfield Primary School sent two teams to the recent High Suffolk School Sports Partnership Mixed Football Tournament: one took part in the inclusive ‘Develop’ competition, whilst the other took part in the more rigorous ‘Compete’ competition.
The Develop Team played four matches, winning two, drawing one and losing another. They were an extremely cohesive group and played really well together. But for one goal-mouth mix-up, they could well have gone through to the knock-out stages. Well done them.
The Compete Team got off to a tremendous start, winning their first game. Like the other team, they had excellent teamwork and were very well organised. They played six matches in all, winning one, drawing two and remaining competitive in the others, which led them to a fifth-place finish.
Once again though, our children impressed us with the values they displayed: they were competitive but played with a spirit of enjoyment; they were respectful of both their opponents and the young referees; and they played with determination and commitment.
Well done Fressingfield.
