Friday 9th March saw 21 football teams descend upon a foggy Winterfold for the annual U9 and U11 Catholic Schools’ (CTA) Football Tournament.
Both Winterfold teams performed very well on the day and reached the semi-finals of their respective competitions. In their semi-final, the U11 team finished level at full time and the golden goal period still couldn’t split the teams so it went to penalties. The Winterfold team went through to the final in thrilling fashion but lost to the better team after giving their all. The U9 team narrowly lost their semi-final and played in the 3rd-4th place play-off match.
Our Year 8 pupils were fantastic ambassadors for the School on the day with six of them getting the opportunity to referee and others acting as guides, handing out programmes and taking refreshments to our guests.
Thanks to the Winterfold grounds, sports and catering teams for their efforts in making the day such a success.
