Russell Raiders Successes
14th June 2022
Russell Raiders took part in the Silsoe Lower School football tournament on Saturday 11th June.
Year 4 had another great set of results!
Two teams were entered (morning team/afternoon team), with the morning team coming 2nd overall and the afternoon team winning the trophy!
All the boys were truly fantastic and deserved their victories. Well done to the teams:
Afternoon team: Harry S, Matthew W, Lennon, Finlay, Joseph D, Alfie, Harley S and Isaac B
Morning team: Oscar, Joe G, Fergus, Harry T, Ronnie, Oliver H, Kayden and Daniel.
And a special mention to team mates: Oliver S, Jack, Archer and Finnian who couldn't make this tournament.
The coaches (Gary, Paul, Ian and Andy) are all super proud of you!
Year 3 had a great day too, with the morning team not losing a single game or conceding a single goal, even though the team do not regularly play together. In addition, the team won the 'Fair Play' trophy with the comment of 'This is what I want to see in children's grass roots football - they embodied the spirit of football.' What incredible feedback - Mrs Walker and your coaches are super proud of you for being such respectful representatives of our school and your club. Special well done to: Jude F, Archie G, Finley S, Toby H, Evelyn Y, Presley R and Ben B.
After a great day of football, the year 1 team also picked up the Fair Play Trophy too! This is an incredible reflection on the team. The referee and organisers were really impressed with the attitude of all the Russell players: they were positive throughout, whether winning or losing and never moaned about being substituted.
The children involved were: Monty W, Teddy P, Leo F, Albert K, Leo D, Teddy C, Alfie L, Mason V, Matthew D, Oliver H.
Well done to everyone! What a great day!
