The Abbey Football Tournament

The Grove School football squad were recently invited to a tournament at the home of Cambridge United, The Abbey Stadium. Competing in 5-a-side teams, the children played in a group of 4 other schools. The squad managed to top their group by playing the brand of fast tempo, high-scoring football that has seen the children achieve such success throughout the season. In our first game, against Millfield School, we won 8-0 and the high scoring continued against Fordham, where we won 5-0. We were then given a 2-0 victory. This all led to the decider of the group where we would face Westfield. In a hard-fought match, we drew 1-1 but topped the group on goal difference. This meant that we would now play in the quarter finals where we met last years’ finalists, Holywell, who deservedly beat us 3-0 and went on to eventually win the whole tournament. All of the children received medals and should be extremely proud of their achievements so far this season.

Player of the tournament: Einaras Grigas—well done!
