So far two of the three qualifying rounds of the Under 11 Boys’ Indoor 5-a-side Competition have taken place at Harvey Hadden Sports’ Village. Five city primary schools are competing in each of the tournaments to produce six to qualify for the grand final on Dec 3rd. In the first of these Crabtree Farm managed a perfect record of four wins out of four in which they conceded just one goal while scoring eight. Whitemoor scored the same number of goals and also conceded just one but that was in a 1-0 defeat to Crabtree so they qualified in second place with three fewer points but well ahead of their nearest rivals Fernwood and Walter Halls who tied on results and goal difference in third place.

In the second tournament Southwark achieved ten points while scoring twelve and conceding just twice. They drew 1-1 with High School who were the other qualifier from this group by winning two and drawing two.

Two days later the girls’ U14 tournament took place at Harvey Hadden Sports’ Village. Two leagues produced four semi finalists of whom Girls’ High School had the outstanding record in winning all their games, scoring sixteen times and conceding just twice. They won their semi 2-0 against Nottingham Free School while Ellis Guilford, who played with one player short throughout the evening, drew 0-0 with Trinity but went through 5-4 on penalties. The final produced a 7-1 win for the High School side but it was not as one sided as the score suggests. They had the tournament’s outstanding goalkeeper and she kept out Ellis who were able to put plenty of pressure on despite being a player short. However the winners were worthy of their success and were presented with their medals and the trophy by Nottingham Schools’ FA chairman Colin Hammond who also presented a hard working Ellis team with theirs.
