The Richmond School community…are extremely proud of our boys Year 5 and 6 football team.
They have committed to regular training sessions with coach Mr David Ball (Year 6 Teacher) for some time and have displayed fantastic teamwork.
They were fortunate to achieve a place at the Regional boys football final in Nottingham at the weekend. Each team was representing their County.
Not only were they representing our school, they were also representing Lincolnshire.
Throughout each game they persevered, playing against the top boys school teams in the Regional areas.
They were not lucky enough to win…but for us the dedication, effort and teamwork skills they displayed throughout were second to none. Mr David Ball stated,
“They never gave up and were committed to their teammates!”
These boys are an absolute credit to our School and are fantastic role models for our younger pupils.
