Everton FC Angry Birds Egg Cup 2017/18
What a day! Yesterday saw Mrs Croxford and Mr Harrison take a Y5 and Y6 football team to Goodison Park to play in the inaugural Angry Birds Egg Cup.
The children played 3 group games and remained unbeaten, with a 1-1 draw, a 1-0 win and a 0-0 draw in the final group game. Ben was the hero at one end with both the goals, with Liam the hero at the other end, making 3 outstanding saves in the 0-0 draw.
These results saw us top the group and move into the quarter final knock out stage. We moved pitches to play in front of our fantastic fans, ok, ok family and friends, and they were rewarded with a brilliant 3-1 victory with Dylan and Mason (2) scoring the goals. Semi final here we come!
After a quick rest, we played heroically in what turned out to be our final game. Dylan had one kicked of the line, Ben should have been awarded a penalty for some extremely rough play…but it wasn’t to be and we bowed out with a 1-0 defeat.
The children represented school exceptionally well and we couldn’t be prouder. Ben Mc, Alan, Dylan, Michael, Jack, Omarion, Mason, Ben K, Bobby and Liam take a bow! We can’t thank Everton Football Club enough for making the dreams of playing at Goodison come true for some of the children, particularly the Blue Boys. Additonally, Mr Harrison and Mrs Croxford, both season ticket holders at Goodison, got to lead the team out to Z Cars, so their dreams also came true. As I said at the beginning…what a day!
