Warren Park @ Southdowns – Boys’ Football
Warren Park began their 2019 campaign for glory with many new faces donning the Warren Park strip. Some of these boys had not represented the school before and some were turning their hand (or feet) to football for the very first time.
Both sides performed admirably on the opening night of fixtures with some brilliant performances. Particular standouts were Scarlett, the only girl on the side, who dominated in defence and pushed the A team forward. She was ably supported by our only Year 5, Jayden, who excelled and scored three goals on the night which contributed to two wins and only a solitary defeat.
The B team were led by Jack who was a colossus, tackling, winning headers, and halting any attack that came his way. He was aided by the heroics of Jay in goal who, despite some early nerves, managed to save a penalty and make numerous high quality saves across the two games – one was drawn and one was lost.
All in all, it was an excellent start to what promises to be an excellent tournament.
