Football tournaments at Marley

This week Hothfield have been competing in some football tournaments at Marley pitches in Keighley.

On Monday night the year 3 and 4 boys team performed exceptionally, winning 2 and drawing 3 of their games. Lewis scored 3 goals, Joe got 1. Sam performed heroically in goal. Callum, Matthew and Dominic worked tirelessly for the team. Ben was very calm and assured in defence. Despite not conceding a goal in any of the games we finished 2nd in the group so didnt qualify for the semi finals.

On Tuesday it was the year 5 and 6 boys’ turn. Again we played well, winning 1, drawing 1 and narrowly losing 3. Greg scored 3 goals. Jack made some magnificent saves. Connor, Toby, Andrew, Harry C and Harry S all performed confidently and showed plenty of footballing skill and ability.

Last night it was the year 5 and 6 girls’ team of Abigail, Katie, Bethan, Maire, Niamh and Khadija. We drew 1 game and lost 4. Our performances got better with each gamr as the girls gained more confidence. They reflected on their performances and learnt from mistakes to allow themselves to be play better.

Well done Hothfield’s footballers.
