Footy fun at St Michaels.

A little later than usual, we have managed to visit St Michael's and play what has become our annual mini football tournament.
In total, 37 boys and girls supported by an army of MaDs (mums and dads) from Newport enjoyed a lovely autumn evening playing football.
The boys A and B teams and a girls teams played simultaneously.
The A team boys' fixture was a league fixture and I'm pleased to say they won 4-1 with Reece and Reece scoring all 4 goals. This time Reece M. scored a hat trick to add to his fine goal against St Josephs. Well done boys!
Unfortunately, the B team boys didn't fare so well and sunk to a 6-0 defeat against a very able and generally older St Michael's B team. It was a tough start for the red shirted Santander boys. Their first competitive game for the school started with 5 goals conceded in the first half.
However, the boys showed a positive attitude.The second half saw a determined effort and only a single goal conceded. Near the end as both teams tired Josh missed by a whisker.

The girls are proving to be a force to be reckoned with and won their friendly rather easily 6-0 against an inexperienced St Michaels team. The entire squad of 16 girls made an appearance for the school team. Well done!
