For the first time, we entered a team of footballers to take part in this prestigious event. The prize for the winning team of 8 was to represent Southampton FC at White Hart Lane which is the home of Tottenham Hotspur, wearing official Southampton match kit. 54 school teams from school across Southampton and Hampshire took part.
The boys who took part were absolutely amazing. They played with energy and enthusiasm and demonstrated outstanding teamwork throughout. We made it all the way to the final having been completely unbeaten up to this point, but sadly lost on penalties after drawing 1-1.
This was a very difficult thing to accept having gone so far, however now that the dust has settled I think we can all celebrate this amazing achievement. We'll be back!
