Cardinal Newman Catholic Primary School

Lead Kindly Light, Lead Thou Me On

Xavier Education Trust

U11 District Football Tournament

This was held on the school field on Thursday 5th November and the games produced some real fireworks! Eleven schools from Elmbridge and Runnymede entered the competition and the games were hotly contested. We were drawn into group A where we performed superbly to win the group and progress to the semi finals. We were undefeated in the group and conceded no goals.

The semi final was a very tense and exciting match and we were the better side but the outstanding goal keeper from St Jude’s kept us at bay. The game went to extra time and unfortunately a deflected free kick gave St Jude’s the narrowest of victories. I was very proud of the way all the boys played - they were a credit to the school…….. it’s just a shame we didn’tget that little bit of luck!
