Annemount School was delighted to host the 2018 ISA Year Two Football Tournament at the Power League, Barnet and to welcome teams from The Gower School, Lyonsdown School and Mulberry House School.
Everybody fielded two teams and play swiftly got underway, with 10 minute 5-a-side games. The excitement and the goals mounted as the children played through the first 6 heats; in fact there were over 100 goals scored in the heats, with some very exciting and close games!
The quarterfinals saw two matches decided on penalty shootouts after 0-0 draws and the Annemount and The Gower School A teams both felt the pain and disappointment of losing on penalties.
The semi-finalists were: Annemount B v Mulberry House B and Lyonsdown A v Lyonsdown B The finalists were: Annemount B v Lyonsdown B and Annemount B won the final match 4-0 to earn the trophy.
The afternoon was remarked upon for its fair play, some wonderful young talent, its fulsome support and encouragement from the sidelines, its teamwork and, most importantly, its great fun.
We were honoured to have Premier League player Daryl Janmaat present the schools with their awards and the players with their medals to round off an excellent afternoon of sport.
Thank you to everyone who took part and who worked so hard to support the children.
