Boys Futsal

On 30th January, Year 4 boys went down to the AstroTurf for a Futsal tournament.

Futsal is essentially football with a twist (and a lot less number of rules), it’s a five a side game which includes one goalkeeper for each side, with a much smaller pitch, mostly played indoor stadiums and a (slightly) different ball. With the small nature of the pitch, the players playing in the league need to have much more close control and better technique on the ball.   (taken from https://www.sportskeeda.com/futsal/what-is-futsal-how-is-it-different-from-football)

Fourteen boys attended from Two Moors and we had some keen footballers and some that hardly ever play.

We played a mixture of 6-a-side and 7-a-side games, depending on how many were in the other team.  Both teams played well, and enjoyed the challenge.

Arthur and Callum were given certificates for self belief and determination, which was given to them by coaches that had been watching them throughout the morning.

Two Moors B team won the tournament, with Two Moors B team coming 3rd.

Well done boys!

Girls 6 a side Football

This week was the turn of year 5 girls to go down to the AstroTurf and play football.  We took two teams.  In the teams were some keen and experienced players and some complete novices.

All the girls played well and encouraged each other, both in their teams and in the other Two Moors team.  By the end of the tournament, we had played every team (some teams we played twice) and the girls were tired after putting in so much effort.

Roxy and Daisy were given certificates for self belief and determination, and were picked out by the year 10 coaches who were watching the games throughout the morning.

Although we didn’t win, we all had a great morning and the girls showed great sportsmanship after each game, making Two Moors proud.

Well done girls!
