Barcelona Football Festival – 14/6/22
Congratulations to Year 10 students, Jamie S and Izaak S, who competed in the Barcelona Football Festival for the Swindon Town FC, FITC Team (Football in the Community) over the weekend of 27 and 28 May 2022.
The squad played well throughout and made it through to the B finals, ending up in 5th place! They won 4 out of 5 games: two against French teams and two against English teams, but narrowly lost to a team from Catalonia.
Izaak scored a great goal against the French and Jamie scored the winning penalty in the penalty shoot out in the Semi Finals of the B cup. Jamie was captain of the team and his coaches said he was extremely supportive of the players on and off the pitch. A nice compliment of his character!
Both students were buzzing when they arrived back at school. We are very proud of their achievement – what an experience!
