Nothing but the best

Spain football tour 2018

Boys from Years 8 and 9 recently returned from taking part in the Copa Catalunya - a prestigious international football tournament in Barcelona.

During the week, both Year 8 and 9 teams had the chance to prepare, and play fixtures in an international knockout tournament.

Both sides performed to high levels, in hot temperatures, against teams from Italy, Chile, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Slovenia, and Albania.

With both teams returning with victories and Year 9s on the very brink of finals (were it not for goal difference) they can all hold their heads high. They were a credit to the Academy. 

From this enrichment experience, and the rapid growth of players in both teams, managers Mr Miller and Mr Wilkins are confident of another cracking season in  2018-19. Well done to all pupils and staff involved!
