Bridgewater pupil wins ISA Cross Country title

Bridgewater pupil Alfie Turley wins ISA Cross Country U9 championship

Year 4 Bridgewater Prep pupil and Manchester City U9 Academy player, Alfie Turley, is proving to be hard to beat with and without a ball. Alfie recently took home ‘Player of the Tournament’ in Premier Sports’ inter-school basketball competition and, in the same week, won Bridgewater’s first ever Cross Country U9 Championship in the annual ISA Cross Country Junior regionals. This guarantees he place along with teammates Luca Barooah and Lukee Holding, who also gave a superb performance to make the top ten of the regional heat, to represent the North in the national finals later this year.

A keen sports fan and dedicated footballer, the talented youngster’s school achievements come off the back of a successful 2018/19 season for the Manchester City Elite Academy team, with whom he signed in May 2018. Playing on the wing, Alfie is proud to have helped the team recently win their tournament in the February half term break over in Copenhagen, Denmark, beating Liverpool 1-0 in the final.

Said Mr. Rooney, Head of Prep: “At Bridgewater we celebrate the achievements of all our pupils on a regular basis. We encourage our children to do their best, fulfil their potential and, most importantly, enjoy competing with each other and against other schools in a fair and respectful way. We are delighted that Alfie has been able to experience a variety of sports at our school and, with the support and encouragement of both teammates and staff, has taken these opportunities with both hands. Well done to all!”

“We encourage our children to do their best, fulfil their potential and, most importantly, enjoy competing with each other and against other schools in a fair and respectful way.”

For us, achievement means so much more when it is coupled with true enjoyment.
