U16 footballers triumph in National ISA Tournament
Bridgewater U16 footballers become ISA National Champions 2019/20.
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 team had to draw on every ounce of skill, ability and determination to take the prestigious title.
Fielding a squad of nine talented and driven Year 10 and 11 students, the success of the Bridgwater 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: Hayden Sackfield, Sunyul Koo, Jack McFayden, Davide Cervellione, Reda Alhumaidi, Luke Taylor, Sam Townson, Isaac Lee (Captain) and Jordon Frisby (top scorer).
