St Nicholas Primary School Boys Football Team are celebrating after they reached and triumphed in the Humberside Finals.
Their win over a strong North Ferriby side now means the school will compete in the Midlands Finals being held in March.
Danny Norton from the St Nicholas Primary School says the side showed commitment and desire on their way to the title. He said;
“Not losing a game throughout these competitions. This in itself was an outstanding achievement for a school with just 40 Year 6 pupils.
“We entered the competition with fairly low expectations. However, we knew that we had a fantastic team, with an incredible team spirit and a will to win.”
The side made up of pupils from Year 5 and 6 reached the prestigious final seeing off competition in the both Beverley Schools Final and East Riding Schools Final.
Mr Norton added;
“Getting through the first two competitions without losing a game was an outstanding achievement for a school with just 40 Year 6 pupils.”
Team Performed Well At Humberside Finals
“At the Humberside Finals, the team performed very well. They produced last-minute goals, put in some wonderful defending and scored a last gasp winner. The players even held their nerve in a penalty shootout following a goalless draw.”
“Their efforts got us through to the final where we faced a tough test against North Ferriby. Ferriby is a good side with decent players. However, the team showed incredible work rate and desire and as a result of this secured a 2-0 win.”
“This is the first time our school has ever won the competition. It is also the first time in many years that a football team from Beverley has won.”
“Every player deserves the respect and gratitude for their incredible effort and attitude. The team would like to thank the staff and parents for all their support.”
“We can not look forward to going to Nottingham in Spring and competing in the Midlands Finals.”
