Derbyshire KS3 Football Tournament

On Wednesday the 12th of July 2017 SSSC hosted a 5aside football tournament for Derbyshire based schools. Around 50 boys and girls attended our event from Bennerley Fields, Peak Special School, Fountains Federation and Brackenfield.

The morning consisted of different skills based activities before an afternoon session of tournament games. The tournament involved mixed teams with pupils from the different schools involved joining forces for an entertaining and competitive afternoon of football. The tournament consisted of two groups with the winners of each then competing in a goalless final which was settled in the dramatic fashion of penalties.

The day was filled with great goals, strong tackles and silky skills but most importantly of all it gave pupils the opportunity to make new friends and work with people they had never met before. The event was a huge success and we are already looking forward to running similar sporting events in the next academic year. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */
