On Thursday last week, a squad of ten children represented Archibald at a football tournament.

This event was played at the renowned Middlesbrough Sports Village.

The day was packed full of goals, resilience, and teamwork. The tournament consisted of a league format with group games on the morning and knockout format on the afternoon to try and win the coveted trophy.

After a shaky start to the day, Archibald came away with 3 draws, one loss and one win. There were some great goals scored and a desire to pull together as a team in the latter stages of the morning which helped the team qualify for the afternoon stages.

Awaiting the team in the afternoon were some tough opponents. Fortunately, the team came out victorious, winning 4 games and played out a draw in the last fixture. It was clear to see the commitment, teamwork and positive attitudes of the squad helped secure the win.

Congratulations to all the team, who all played a big part in the day.
