The weather was wet but the football was great! Our Christ Church team, expertly coached by Matthew Rose, entered the Albert Dix football tournament for the second consecutive year hoping to go one better than last season. The team got off to a good start with a 1-1 draw against St. Edwards before a thrilling game against Holy Trinity where the boys won 5-0 despite the heavy rain and overhead thunder! With confidence running high Christ Church then took on Leckhampton in a very tight match. They went 1 goal down after just a few minutes but soon equalised before taking the lead in the second half. With only the group winners going through to the finals, it all came down to the final game against Warden Hill. In a close and nervous game, with more dark clouds gathering overhead, the boys dug deep to earn a 1-1 draw which saw them top the group and go through to the finals which will take place after half term.
We owe a big thank you to Matt for being our team manager and can't wait for the finals.
Congratulations Christ Church!
