On Tuesday 16th May, we went to Sussex Downs Leisure Centre and played a 7-a-side football tournament against 6 other teams. We were a joint team with East Hoathly – the Pioneer dream team! We only conceded one goal and drew all the others of our matches. Lottie played midfield and up front for some matches, Jorin played in defence, Jack was a striker and up front, Lil played in defence and Georg was up front and a midfielder. We all took turns at playing in the matches and being a substitute. We got on really well with the East Hoathly children and played as a great team. Lottie: I really enjoyed my day because we worked really well as a team and we played tactically throughout. Jorin: I enjoyed playing football! I don’t usually play so it was nice to be given the opportunity to!
Jack: I really enjoyed playing football all morning. I took a shot from the halfway line and it nearly went in, but hit the crossbar!
Lil: I really enjoyed my day because I got to take the throw-ins which I’m really good at!
Georg: It was great fun to play in the tournament because it was nice to play against other teams and with the East Hoathly team.
