After winning our qualifying group last week, the boys team travelled back to Harvey Hadden to take part in the city finals for the 5-a-side tournament.
We kicked off with a narrow 1-0 win against Claremont, before losing our next game to a strong Ambleside team, 0-2. The team didn't let their heads drop though and drew their next game 0-0 with Whitemoor. The Nottingham High School were up next, in which we took the victory 1-0. This meant that we went into our last game knowing a win would give us the trophy. In a nervous five minute match, Melbury managed to beat Scotholme 2-0 meaning Melbury were crowned the champions!!!!
What an incredible achievement for the team! As we said before, Mr Thompson and Mrs Morris were SO proud of the team. Their attitude, sportsmanship and perseverance was incredible!
A huge thank you to all of the grown ups who came to support the team.
Next up, we travel to Crewe to represent Notts County in a competition against other schools from northern England.
