The Year 5/6 boys and girls football team played in the final of the EFL Cup at the Keepmoat Stadium on the pitch before the Doncaster Rovers game. Unfortunately, they lost 2-0 to Sunnyfields Primary School. The children did really well to get to this stage and were unlucky on the day. They hit the post and played some good football, but it wasn’t to be. Well done to all involved. A big thank you to everyone who supported the event.
A team from Years 5/6 played against thirty of the best footballing schools in Doncaster. They played seven games, winning six and losing one in the group stages.

Well done to all the schools involved and a big thank you to Club Doncaster for organising the competition. Good luck team!

We took two teams from year 5/6 to a football competition at the Keepmoat Stadium. There were 25 schools involved and it was a fantastic afternoon for the children. The competition had groups of four where the top two teams from each group qualified for the next stage. One of our teams qualified for the next stage and then narrowly got knocked out in the quarter finals. The children played some really good football and learnt a lot from the competition, in particular how to learn from mistakes and rules. Evan Brown particularly impressed with the way he scored some fantastic goals and tried his best. The children enjoyed the cold afternoon out and learnt a lot from the tournament that they can take to future competitions.
