Lockerley Football House World Cup 2018

On Wednesday afternoon the 4 house football teams took to the field to compete in the Lockerley Primary School World Cup 2018.

Toby and Alfie had organised the competition-5 a side with rolling subs, matches 7 minutes each way with 1 minute turn around.

On pitch 1 Rolle took on Dalgety refereed by Mrs Appleby, while on pitch 2 Aylward played against Nightingale with Mr Magrane refereeing. As the whistle blew to start the competition Dalgety were quick to score against Rolle and ended up with a winning score of 7-3. On pitch 2 it was fairly evenly matched with the result being a 3 all draw.

As the second match began on pitch 1 Aylwayd again took an early lead against Rolle who fought hard with Primrose and Tilly working well together to keep the ball away from their goal. Meanwhile on pitch 2 Dalgety took on Nightingale beating them by only goal.

Things were close in the final matches and both referees noticed how well the houses were working together as a team - supporting each other and coaching each other with positive comments throughout the matches.

Mr Dodson and Mr Magrane couldn't resist helping out Rolle in their final match against Nightingale as injury took out one of their players. Unfortunately it was too little too late for Rolle and the final result was 11-6 to Nightingale.

A very tense final match was playing out on pitch 1 with Aylward against Dalgety both looking to take a win to secure overall victory in the competition. As Aaron went off injured Dalgety took the lead but after some ice and rest he came back on to help his team level the score resulting in a 4 all draw.

After all the points were added up Dalgety were declared the worthy winners of the 2018 Lockerley World Cup 2018. Well done to all the players for a fantastic competition, for many it was their first ever football macth!
