There was a dynamic start to the football season as Lyndhurst's Year 5/6 Team emerged triumphant from the squad's first match together, at the Rosendale Playing Fields, on Saturday, 14th October 2017.
Our fearless footie heroes beat local rivals, and well-matched opponents, St Leonard's Primary School 6:1 in an, at times, nail-biting performance.
This was a cracking new beginning for the team, who had not even had one training session together before the match; they immediately found their feet and defended, attacked and scored like melded professionals from kick-off to the final whistle.
On the back of some superb set-ups this week's scorers included Ikenna (2 goals), Levi, Daniel, Pele and Archie, with goalie Zac saving some great attempts from the opposition.
Pele was named Man of the Match but Daniel, in defence, also received a special mention from Mr Hammill, who buoyed the team along with their guest coach, Jim North.
Over the past few years the Lyndhurst Football Team has gone from strength-to-strength, so don't miss these studded strikers in action. We'll let you know when the next game is and you can lend your sound support from the sidelines!
