This year’s ISA National 6-a-Side Football Tournament at the University of Nottingham was one of the most strongly contested in the history of this showpiece event. With twenty teams from across the UK competing in the U16 category, the Bridgewater School team had to draw on every ounce of skill, agility and determination to take the prestigious title.
Fielding a squad of nine talented and driven Year 10 and 11 students, the success of the Bridgewater team depended on every individual playing their part and working together to deliver a spirited team performance throughout the tournament.
The triumphant team topped their group against tough competition from Brooke House College, Luckley House School, Trinity School Teignmouth and St Crispin’s School before moving onto the knockout stages of the tournament where their efforts were rewarded, narrowly beating Scarisbrick Hall School & College and St. Edward’s School Cheltenham to emerge victorious.
Richard Smith, Head of P.E. said “This is the first national senior team title in the school’s history and an outstanding achievement. The boys should be incredibly proud of their performance and what they have accomplished.”
The winning team: H. Sackfield, S. Koo, J. McFayden, D. Cervellione, R. Alhumaidi, L. Taylor, S. Townson, I. Lee (Captain) and J. Frisby (top scorer).
