The Michael Faraday football team is celebrating after reaching the final of a prestigious tournament that took place on the pitch at Millwall FC. A team made of boys and girls from Year 4 and Year 5 was invited to take part in the competition. It was a fantastic achievement to reach the final – we lost narrowly on penalties to finish a proud second place.
The route to the final involved the Michael Faraday team playing the other seven teams twice. Our players performed superbly both on the pitch. Staff member Nick commented that they were a credit to our school community.
This was a wonderful opportunity for the pupils to experience a competitive football tournament. A tremendous team spirit was in place right from the team coach journey to Millwall, through until the final itself.
The Michael Faraday players were so excited to be able to play on a professional football pitch. Each team member was presented with a medal at the end of the tournament. We are now looking forward to the next competition!
