This year the influx of entries for the Years 3/4 Football competition meant we had to split the event into 2 separate competitions. The first event had 8 teams represent their schools. We split the teams into 2 groups which all competed for the top 2 places in their group. Playing 12-minute games the teams thoroughly enjoyed scoring lots of goals and the teams qualifying through to the Semi-finals were St Peter & Pauls V St Marys Clayton and St Marys Oswaldtwistle V Green Haworth. Gaining a victory and making it through to the semi finals both showing an excellent standard of play was St Peter & Pauls V St Marys Oswaldtwistle resulting in a very high standard final match!
The top 3 finishing positions were
1st St Peter & St Pauls
2nd St Marys Oswaldtwistle
3rd – St Marys Clayton
The second of the Hyndburn Year 3& 4 events had the best of the weather as the rain stopped for a while. Eleven teams were competing across two groups and the standard of play was a high as ever.
The winners of group one was St Andrews who played the runners up in group two who were Peel Park A. Runners up in group one was Mount Pleasant A who played winners of two St Bartholomew’s. St Andrews won their semi-final outright whilst the second semi-final went to the dreaded penalties which Mount Pleasant won 3 – 1.
The third and fourth place play off saw Peel Park take 3rd place. The final was an extremely close affair between Mount Pleasant A and St Andrews. St Andrews had beaten Mount Pleasant in the group stages but the final saw Mount Pleasant score an early goal to take the gold medals.
Well Done to both the winning teams and thank you to the Hyndburn Academy Sports Leaders & Young Referees that assisted with refereeing the games!
