Year 5 & 6 Football Tournament

1st April 2017

On Wednesday 19th April Gatehouse football team traveled up to St Nicholas Primary School in Exeter to compete in a boys and girls year 5 & 6 football tournament. There were 10 schools in the tournament.

Gatehouse played 4 games in the group stage, winning 2 drawing 1 and losing 1. Thankfully for the team we qualified as the best runner up to progress into the semi finals.

We then played against a strong Beacon school from Exmouth The match was very even, but a late goal meant Gatehouse won 2-1 to progress into the final.

The final was against Woodbury A. This was a high quality final between two very keen teams. At full time the score was 0-0. At the start of extra time the team played more attacking by having an extra midfielder and we scored two great goals to win the final 2-0 and the whole competition.

Full credit to the whole team who displayed amazing team work and some exceptional skill levels.


Thanks also to Cara Khadaroo from Star Lettings who kindly sponsored our amazing school football kit.


Well done to all!! Mr Keast & Miss Emmerton
