JUBILEE SHIELD WINNERS!!!
Tuesday 8th November 4pm-6.30pm
After an extremely competitive night of football at St. Bedes, our Y5/6 football team are the Jubilee Shield winners!! A tricky group awaited us. St Francis, St Peters, St Gabriels and Salesbury, all previous winners of the shield. After three draws, we had to win our final game against Salesbury to qualify for the semi-finals. It was a quality game throughout and we won the game 1-0 late on qualifying with 6 points.
We were drawn against Audley in the semi finals, a difficult game considering they were unbeaten all night! 1-0 at half time meant we went in to the 2nd half with a slight advantages. We won the game 2-0 to make the final against Feniscowles. An outstanding final was won in the final minute, St Paul's winning the game 1-0. The quality of the game reflected the finals event, both teams gave their all but it was St Paul's who prevailed!
Next stop... the Lancashire school finals on Saturday 28th January 2017!
Well done boys, we are so proud of you! This is the first time in 16 years that St Paul's have won this prestigious shield. What an amazing achievement!
