On the 11th and 18th of November, the Upwood Primary Academy Football team, played in the Autumn Term Tournament. It comprised of two matches against Gt. Paxton Primary School, one away at their ground, and another here at home. The results were combined, giving an aggregate score, and an overall winner.
The team played extremely well, both away at Gt. Paxton and at home. There were many passages of play where we had control of the game and the football on display was a pleasure to watch. Unfortunately, Gt. Paxton came away 3-0 winners in the first match and also won the return leg, 3-1. Resulting in a 6-1 loss over the two matches.
Upwood Primary Academy are extremely proud of the football team and the score-line is not a fair reflection of the ability, hard work and perseverance they displayed. As runners-up in the competition, the players all received medals and will now be entered into the Cambridgeshire County Small Schools Finals (7-a-side) in the Spring Term. Super job everyone!
