Senior Football Team Win Liverpool Plate Competition!

The senior football team travelled to Liverpool over the weekend to compete in the Liverpool College 8-a-side tournament. The students, from Years 11, 12 and 13 travelled down after school on Friday and enjoyed a delicious curry that evening before the competition kicked off on the Saturday morning. It was a slow start to the tournament and the team lost their opening two games but it wasn’t long before they improved and drew 1-1 with Emmanuel to finish 3rd in their group and qualify for the Plate semi-final. The boys beat a team from Manchester Grammar School 3-0 and went on to win their final match against the hosts Liverpool College 1-0, thus winning the Plate competition. Well done to all the boys!
