Teams battle it out at the finals of the football tournament
The finals of the Westholme 5-a-side Indoor football tournament took place on Friday evening. Once again, we welcomed six teams back to school to battle it out in the final round of the tournament.
The qualifying schools were:
St Leonards Balderstone
St Thomas’ Barrowford
As in the previous two rounds, competition from all of the schools was fierce – no one wanted to let their team down and this was apparent for all to see.
The will to win was as strong as it had ever been – tackles were tough, but fair, and all of the teams did themselves proud.
As the teams gathered at the end of the tournament, they waited anxiously, to hear the results. Congratulations went to Salesbury, who were the eventual winners and earned themselves gold medals and the winning trophy. Silver and bronze medals went to The Redeemer and Manor Road respectively.
Winners – Salesbury
Second Place – The Redeemer 3rd Place – Manor Road
After taking charge of some of the refereeing duties yet again, ex Blackburn Rovers star, Kevin Gallacher was on hand to present the certificates to all of the finalists and the medals and trophy to the winners and runners up.
All that was left by the end of the presentation ceremony, was to head to the school dining hall for tea – the infamous pizza, sausage and chips!
The tournament was hailed a huge success by all and we hope to run it again next year.
Special thanks went to Mr Lewis, Head of Westholme Boys’ Junior School who was the main event organiser and to Kevin Gallacher for refereeing and presenting the awards. Other staff members whose help on each of the evenings were also thanked – without them, the tournament would not have been possible to run.
