Ron Lobb 5-A-Side Football Competition
The School football team enjoyed a great morning of indoor 5-a-side football at Fort Regent this Saturday. This is an annual event and all primary schools in the island are involved.
St George’s Prep, were drawn in a group with eight other Primary Schools: St Saviours, Mont Nicolle, Bel Royal, Samares, Les Landes, Grand Vaux, D’Auvergne and La Moye. The A team played all of these teams in a league/Round Robin format.
Having never previously reached the knock-out stages, St George’s won four and drew four of their matches, without conceding a goal. This meant that they finished the morning in equal first place in their group and put them through to the knock-out stages!
Due to a safety issue on one of the three available playing surfaces, the tournament could not be completed on Saturday, meaning the knock-out stages will be played at a date to be arranged later this school year.
The boys worked extremely hard in all of the matches and as well as being unbeatable in defence, they played some attractive passing football and scored some great goals. Well done to Zac Mallinson, Michael Pardey, Sebastien Bagot, Hector Somay, Lance Armstrong, Ben Cleary and Jai Mansell!
