Football Tournament

Brambletye Football Tournament

Friday 15th November Years 3 and 4

Played on a damp and gloomy afternoon the conditions were a real challenge.  In addition, it was our first tournament on Astro – turf.

In the first match we played St Peters and by half – time despite dominating possession incredibly we were 2-0 down.  A change of players and positions saw an amazing fight back with us winning 3-2.  Music from the Great Escape was suddenly an ear-worm for me.

Our second game was against the hosts A – Team.  We were up against “A school of Giants.” Although small in stature we were the far better team in a tight 0-0 draw.

In our third game we had a comfortable 3-0 over Baldwins Hill and finished top of our group on goals scored.

The semi – final was another close affair 0-0, against Halsford Park, a large two form entry school in East Grinstead. Unlike England we managed a 5-4 penalty shoot-out win.  My ear – worm was now under pressure.

In near darkness we played the host's A – team again.  We were 1-0 down at half – time and then pressed for an equaliser being caught out on the break.  Brambletye deserved their 2-0 win as they were the better team in the final.  However, my final ear – worm of the day was “Simply the best by Tina Turner,” as the boys played their hearts out and I am always proud of how our school teams always do their best.
