Our Y6 footballers entered the local round of the ESFA 7-a-Side Football Competition and played extremely well. In a very closely contested competition, Tirlebrook finished in joint third place out of five schools altogether, winning once, drawing twice and losing just the once. It was a surprisingly warm afternoon and several parents and families turned out to support the team. The competition began with a victory in the first match - a 1-0 win against Tewkesbury C. of E. This was followed by a 2-2 draw with Carrant Brook after conceding a goal very late in the game. The team put aside their disappointment and battled well against eventual winners John Moore. This game saw some heroic defending as John Moore dominated possession and chances. A goal was conceded ... but only just! The referee rightly adjudged the ball to have crossed the goal line to give John Moore a deserved lead. However, Tirlebrook still found time to create chances and as the game went on the balance of play shifted. It was unfortunate that an effort from Oisin hit the underside of the crossbar ... but did not cross the line! The game ended 1-0. The final match in the competition was finely balanced, and having taken the lead against Mitton, the team conceded once more late on in the game as it ended 1-1. Everyone can be pleased with their performance and attitude. It was a good team effort and captain Charlie did a great job. Well done!
Squad: Charlie Kendrick (captain), Christopher Ballinger, Dylan Coxshall, Finley Gardiner, Aaron Lund, Sam Mills, Oisin Moseley, Alex Oliver, Tom Prosser & Ethan Whybrow.
