Earls Hall win the Year 5 & 6 Boys Football

The day began with bright sun shine as students awoke in preparation for the annual Year 5/6 Football tournament not knowing how the weather was going to go or whether they would be going home victorious. Thankfully, the weather held and the pitches were in perfect condition.

A record number 21 teams arrived at Alleyn Court playing fields, raring to go. The teams warmed up and began to play their matches with the knowledge that the best two teams in each of the four groups would go through to the main competition. With the whistles blowing to signal the start of matches the tournament was underway and the action was frantic with goals and skill free flowing.

The final took place in the afternoon still in the beating sun. The final was between new finalist Earls Hall & Hamstel in what was going to be a tough test of stamina, speed and skill. It was close to begin with but eventually Earls Hall took the lead with a thumper effort from distance, eventually winning the match and were crowned the winners of the year 5/6 Southend Borough football competition.

The 3rd and 4th place playoffs were between hosts Alleyn Court and West Leigh, again this was another tight and contested match, eventually finishing with penalties and West Leigh the victors!

Both Earls Hall & Hamstel will represent Southend at the Essex Competition in November.
