After lots of training throughout the year with Mr Royston, the girls football team took part in their first football match. We played a friendly match against Lowdham Primary School. My Royston and I were so proud of the bravery and resilience shown by the girls and hope the momentum keeps going!

The following week, Willow beat Oak 2-1. The final match saw Willow the victors with a 3-0 result.

We won the John Radford Trophy!
On Saturday 1st April, the year 5 boys football team played Peafield Lane in the final of the John Radford Trophy. The match took place on Mansfield Town's pitch at half time of their game v Exeter. We ended the 15 minute match 0-0 so had to go to penalties at full time! The boys stepped up to the plate and took the victory with a 2-1 result. Well done boys!
On Thursday 27th April, John Radford, the chairman of Mansfield Town FC whom the trophy is named after, flew to school in his helicopter to present the trophy!
