Football Champions!!

Monday 10 June 2024

This weekend, two groups of Y5s and Y6s represented Scholes (Elmet) Primary School in the Boston Spa Gala.

Despite some of the players only returning from the Y6 residential a day earlier, they had an entire day of competitive footballing action to get stuck into. All of the children represented school perfectly: they were polite, tried hard and had fun.

In the cup competition, Team Scholes fought bravely but, despite several strong performances and several close score lines, were unable to progress through to the final.

In the mixed plate competition, Team Scholes were unbeaten in the group stage and so, after a long, tense wait to find out (Mrs Hogarth still hasn’t recovered), made it through to the final and the opportunity to win the competition.

With a large crowd watching (including many Scholes parents and the other Scholes team who had stayed to watch the final), Team Scholes dominated the game and ran out 4-0 winners. There were many excellent individual performances but the real strength was the strength of the team!

And so, with great delight, we can officially say: Scholes (Elmet) Primary School are the Boston Spa Mixed Gala 2024 champions! 

Well done to all the players involved on the day (in both teams). We’re really, really proud of you all.

Also, thank you to the parents who attended and supported the teams so brilliantly (and provided what seemed an endless stream of snacks!).

Finally, a huge thank you to Mrs Hogarth who, despite only just returning from 3 days on residential, gave up her time to organise the event and manage both teams on the day!

“Championes, championes, ole ole ole!”
