Futsal Year 10/11 Winners!

January 17, 2016

Our fantastic school Futsal Year 10/11 age group boys recently won the regional Kinder and Sport Futsal Cup and as a result we are now entered into the National version where we will represent ourselves and Cardiff City Football Club.
Futsal is very important for the development of football and plays a key part in our year 12 Btec award which is run in association with Cardiff City.
Tomorrow Monday 18th January 2016 Year 10/11 boys will participate in the next round of this competition in Gloucestershire where we will be competing against teams from England and Wales.
We wish them all the best of luck!

We eventually lost in the knock outs to the winners of the cup Bromsgrove, one of the best rugby schools in south of England.
