Bolton School's annual 5-a-side football festival for primary
schools was a scorching hit this year! The sun shone
on 300 Year 5 and Year 6 girls and boys from local primary
schools who played some wonderful football as they took part
in mini-leagues, followed by knockout rounds.
Mr Keith Branagan, football coach at Bolton School Boys'
Division said: "It's been a great afternoon and really encouraging
to see how much talent has been on show and just how much the
children have been enjoying themselves!"
The interest in the tournament meant that three competitions ran
- an A team competition, a B team competition and a girls'
competition. The girls' final was won by St Thomas
Chequerbent, who overcame Johnson Fold 2-0 and the B Tournament saw
Mytham beat St Thomas Canterbury 3 goals to nil.
St Peter's Smithills and St Philip's Atherton could not be split
in the A team final and after a 0-0 draw it was decided to share
the trophy this year, with each school looking after the silverware
for 6 months each.
The afternoon represented the second part of this year's
Primary School Football Festival at Bolton School. The night
before had seen Year 3 and Year 4 pupils from local primaries take
part in a soccer coaching camp co-run by the School and Bolton
Wanderers' Community Trust coaches.
