On Thursday 5th October the Purbeck School hosted the Purbeck Football Tournament. Nine schools took part in the competition which was open to pupils from years 5 and 6. Although the competition was open to both boys and girls all but two schools entered teams of boys only.
Our sole girl held her own in the goal and played with great confidence. 5 of our team had played the previous year and so knew what to expect. Most of the schools taking part had pupils in their teams who play for community sports teams so the competition was challenging. St Marks won four of their matches beating Swanage Primary, St Georges, Wool & Lulworth & Winfrith. In each of these matches our team did not concede a goal. We lost to St Marys, Stoborough, Wareham & Bovington, eventually finishing in 4th place.
The team are playing in the Purbeck League this year and will continue to train on a Wednesday lunchtime. Our first match is currently scheduled for November 16th at home against Stoborough. The players will be hoping to turn around the 0-1 defeat from the tournament.
Well done to Jayden who received the Star of the Week award for his dazzling defensive skills.
