CROYDON FOOTBALL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS! 4TH APRIL 2019
Over 60 schools were entered into the 'Croydon Football league', which is split up into 11 little leagues of 5/6 teams. Over the course of this year, we played all teams in our league twice, winning all but one game and therefore finished as league winners. All 11 league winners were then drawn into a play off competition.
We beat Fairchilds School 2-1 in our preliminary round to make it through to the quarter finals. In the quarter finals, we beat St Peters 6-1 to progress to the semis. In the semi final, we beat Chipstead Valley 3-1.
Yesterday, we played Trinity School in the final. We started the game off very well, and lead 2-0 at half time thanks to goals from Eli and Nicholas. We continued to out play them in the second half and a further 2 goals from Jaden and Nicholas ,again, ensured we won 4-0 and were crowned champions of Croydon!
A team from St Cyprian’s went to a football tournament in November 2018, organised by Crystal Palace, for schools in the Croydon Borough. There were 24 other schools there.
The results in our group were:
Won 5-0 vs Christ Church
Won 1-0 vs Ecclesbourne
Won 3-0 vs St Johns
Drew 0-0 vs St Aidens
Drew 1-1 vs St Chads
Lost 2-0 vs Margret Roper.
The team made it through to the quarter finals against The Minster School where we drew 1-1 and then won on penalties. We then faced Margaret Roper again and beat them 1-0 to progress through to the Finals. In the final, we beat St Josephs 2-1, scoring our winning goal in the last 20 seconds of the game!
St Cyprian’s won the Croydon tournament and now have a play-off tournament against the winners of the Sutton, Tandridge and Bromley tournaments. The winners of that play off tournament will get the chance to represent Crystal Palace at the ‘premier league primary stars’ tournament, where they will face primary school’s from all over England, representing the 19 other premier league teams.
Congratulations to the team and to Miss Bath, their coach!
