Emmaville Primary School

Blaydon and District Football Champions

28th March 2019

Congratulations to the Emmaville Football team on winning the 7-aside ‘Blaydon and District Juniors Schools Football West League’. Over three weeks of competition, the team played a total of 15 matches against Crookhill, Greenside, Ryton, St Mary and St Thomas, and St Agnes. They won 11, drew 3 and lost 1, gaining a total of 36 points. Our closest competitor had 20 points. The team has shown an excellent attitude, great teamwork and fantastic skill.
As league winners, the boys and girls then went on to compete in the league finals tournament against the champions of the other four leagues. Competition was stiff, but the team once again showed grit and determination, winning two games and losing two (less than half-a-dozen goals were conceded).  The parents and teachers watching the games were very impressed with the children, and they should all be incredibly proud of their achievements.
