Fyling Hall’s Football World Cup

Posted · Add Comment

On Sunday 22nd June pupils took part in the annual world cup tournament held on the all weather pitch.  Fortunately, temperatures weren’t quite as hot as they are in Brazil!  A total of 50 pupils participated from years 7-13, split across 8 teams.  The tournament consisted of 2 groups with each team playing a minimum of 4 matches.

The final was a tense affair and top scorer of the tournament, Joe Sykes, looked to have won it for England with his hat-trick, only for the Dutch team to score 2 late goals.  The final score: England 3-4 Holland.

Well done to all who participated on the day and a special thanks to Samantha Gibson and Joe Sykes for organising a great afternoon of football!
