Year 1/2s Enjoy Football Festival in the sun

Well done to all the ‘youngsters’ from across the 7 teams who thoroughly enjoyed their morning of football at Mark Hall’s all-weather pitch. The sun shone down from early on as the staff from various schools worked fantastically well together to ensure pupils receive maximum playing time, whilst ensuring results were kept respectable – this was a great strength of the event, ensuring that everyone went away feeling valued.

The seven teams played in a large round robin, with Gill Pardoe and Sam Mortimer (St Albans) assisting myself to work through a hastily adjusted schedule. The standard of play was really good and the introduction of the retreat line has certainly improved the attempts for teams to pass the ball from their own half. Obviously at this age, there are always one or two players from each team which really stand out and make a difference but how lovely it was to see them share in other’s delight when they scored a goal; made a save; or simply make a tackle!


The results were calculated and the final placings were as follows:

Cooks Spinney – 16 points – Winners

Little Parndon – 15 points –Runners-Up

Church Langley Yellows – 13 points

Tanys Dell A – 12 points

St Albans – 12 points

Tanys Dell B – 8 points

Church Langley Whites – 6 points
