On Friday 8th March, Lawford attended the Langham Primary School year 3/4 6-a-side football tournament. Each team played in the round robin tournament and Lawford's results were as follows:
Lawford 2 Ardleigh 0 (Dominic and Jake)
Oakley 0 Lawford 1 (Samuel)
Gt Bromley 1 Lawford 1 (Dominic)
Lawford 3 Wix 2 (Macauley x 2 and Jacob)
Dedham 0 Lawford 2 (Finn and Samuel)
Lawford 1 St Johns 1 (Macauley)
Lawford 1 Langham 0 (Macauley)
With 3 points being awarded for a win, two for a draw and 1 for a defeat if only losing by 1 goal, Lawford topped the rankings with 19 points after their 5 wins and 2 draws. The top 4 teams then played off for the trophy. Lawford faced 4th place Bromley in their semi-final and after some excellent teamwork on the field and superb goal keeping by Jacob, Dominic secured the victory for Lawford winning 1-0. The other semi-final between Oakley and Wix went to extra time and penalties, with Oakley finally securing their final place.
Lawford stepped up for the final confident having already secured a win in the round robin tournament, with goals from Dominic and Samuel, superb work from Macauley and Jake in midfield and Finn holding the defence firm and another solid performance from Jacob in goal, Lawford were eventually crowned as rightful winners.
We are so proud of how the boys conducted themselves throughout the tournament, demonstrating not only excellent sportsmanship but fantastic support for each other, all taking their turn in goal and in every position on the pitch.
Congratulations Finn, Macauley, Samuel, Jake, Jacob and Dominic.
