U9s compete at MCFC Football Festival
Our U9 football team performed magnificently last week at the MCFC Football Festival, narrowly missing out on this year’s final after losing to a dramatic sudden-death penalty shoot-out.
Playing at the MCFC Academy, the team acquitted themselves wonderfully, competing amongst 17 state schools from across Greater Manchester in the annual Christmas tournament.
Superb performances against Marton C of E Primary School, The Divine Mercy C of E Primary School and Stamford Park ensured Bridgewater’s place in what was to be an incredibly exciting semi-final against St. Catherine’s of Didsbury, which ended in penalties after deadlock could not be broken in extra time.
Well done to everyone who played their part in a fantastic competition. A great way to finish the year!
