Football Development Festival

On Thursday 21st April saw boys from year 7-8 from 5 South Norfolk SSP secondary schools battle it out at Long Stratton Leisure Centre in our very first boy’s development football festival. This festival was an opportunity to engage new audiences and for schools to select pupils who had not represented their school in fixtures this academic year.

All teams were ready and eager to go from the outset and it was clear that all teams were well prepared, organised on the pitch and confident. The festival consisted of 2 round robins (1 year 7 and 1 year 8).

 The results were:

Year 7:

1st Wymondham High Academy

2nd Framingham Earl

3rd Archbishop Sancroft and Long Stratton

5th Hobart

Year 8:

1st Archbishop Sancroft

2nd Wymondham High Academy

3rd Long Stratton

4th Framingham Earl

5th Hobart

One teacher commented “The afternoon was a great experience for these pupils, and all had a great time”.

Congratulations to all players who participated in the festival, coaches and teachers who helped make the event go so well and a fun afternoon for all involved. Special thanks to Long Stratton Leisure Centre for the use of their pitches and facilities. A massive thank you to the leaders from Long Stratton High School for refereeing, scoring, time keeping and leading the drills/skills for school teams.
