On a beautiful late summer afternoon Mr McCabe arranged the first West Lodge Football Festival for our Under 8 children. With a number of local state and independent schools participating, ten teams of very excited children played four matches in two leagues. For the vast majority of children, and certainly those from West Lodge, it was the first time they had played football for their schools and it was a pleasure to witness the wonderful team spirit shown by all involved. With the emphasis upon participation and enjoyment, there was plenty of healthy competition but great sportsmanship too, which was a pleasure to see. The matches were officiated by our Year 6 children, who did a superb job refereeing and were complimented by many of the visiting teachers and parents. Particular thanks must go to Mr McCabe for such a fantastic tournament and afternoon of sport. Well done to all involved!
