Shirwell School Win Local Football Tournament


Shirwell Competed for the first time in two Barnstaple Area Year 6 football tournaments, one for girls and one for boys. Our boys got off to an amazing start winning 2-1 against Orchard Vale after going 0-1 down. They went on to finish 8th out of 15 teams, a great achievement in their first ever tournament and considering there were only two Year Six boys in the team!

The girls were also competing in their first tournament. They also won their first game 4-0, giving them a flying start. They went on to win every game and the tournament, conceding just one goal in the whole competition.  A fantastic achievement from our girls.
