ISA North Regional 5-a-side Tournament
The journey began again in Grimsby, to qualify for the National tournament in March. As defending National Champions, the current group of boys were entering the competition with a great deal of pride.
Seven group games for both squads ensured plenty of competitive football. LBHS B team finished 5th in their group and progressed to the play off game which they convincingly won 4-1.
LBHS A team were group winners and secured a place in the Nationals. The proceeding semi final and third and fourth play off matches ended in heartache, with two penalty shoot out defeats. Despite this, it showed just how close we pushed our opponents and in some cases, dominated in both games. However, even though the boys were initially disappointed, we were delighted to reach the National finals day.
May I add just how well the pupils represented the school on and off the pitch. They thoroughly enjoyed the day and played with confidence and creativity. We scored a combined total of 35 goals. A most enjoyable day out!
