Football Stars

On Saturday the 30th of May Gartocharn Primary School entered 3 teams into the Drymen Show Football Tournament for the first time ever.  We had a brilliant morning that was great fun and very successful too.  Hence why Mr McDonald left the Drymen Show with no voice!!

The boys teams went 6 matches undefeated all the way to the final where they lost by 1 goal to a team they had previously beaten.  It was a brilliant effort for a group of players who hadn't played together before.  There were some outstanding goals and play from all the boys.  Well done.

After the boys the girls had a lot to live up to, however, they did not disappoint.  The P4/5 girls team competed very well often against older girls.  They got better with each game and were only knocked out in a very tense penalty shoot out.

The P6 team ( including Olivia from P5 ) went through all their group matches undefeated and reached the final.  The final was a tense match which ended 0 - 0 and went onto penalties.  The girls handled the pressure magnificently and won the penalty shoot out and lifted the Drymen Show Football Trophy at the first time of trying! Well done girls for a brilliant performance.

All the children were fantastic ambassadors for our school in every way.  They competed hard and wanted to win, but had great fun and showed real sportsmanship at all times.  A very proud HT!
