The Nottinghamshire Schools' FA Girls 7-a-side Autumn Tournament was sadly reduced to only four teams due to the late withdrawal of two schools but this did not affect the enthisiasm and quality of the football on show. The four sides played in a round robin format and it was clear from the first round of matches that there were two very strong sides. As it happened these two teams, Tollerton from the Rushcliffe District and Lowes Wong representing Newark met each other in the final round of matches. Tollerton took the lead in the first half only for Lowes Wong to come back with an equaliser later in the game and so leave the final score at 1-1 in an exciting game. This left the two teams finishing level on seven points each but with Tollerton having a much better goal difference meant that they will represent Nottinghamshire in the Midland Regional Finals to played next March or April next year.
On Tuesday 20th September, the girls football team took part in the Rushcliffe Euros tournament. For some of these girls, it was their first competitive match playing football and for most of them, their first time playing for the school. We played 5 matches in total and won every single one! We were a solid team and can only get better and better as the girls get used to playing with each other. They showed great sportsmanship and respect. They did Tollerton proud!
On Friday 5th November, the boys football team took part in our first cup match agasint Costock Primary School. Every player worked hard for each other and with that determination, it saw us to a fantastic 6-1 victory. There was a fantastic solo goal which soared and curled through the air and into the top corner. Well done boys and onto the next round!
On Thursday 18th November, 8 children from Year 3 and Year 4 went to Nottingham Trent University, Clifton Campus, to take part in a Multi-Skills Festival with other schools. There were many different sports available where children were able to develop their skills in sports such as basketball, Boccia, curling and more. They wore the Tollerton shirt with pride and were great at showing sportsmanship and teamwork!
On Wednesday 1st December, 10 children from Year 3 and Year 4 took part in a Physical Literacy Sports Festival at South Notts Academy, where they took part and tried their best in many different activities involving athletics skills. Some of them were really nervous before taking part but were excited and happy as the event went on. They represented Tollerton to the highest standard. Well done!
