Five-a-side-Friday football fun for sixth formers and PE staff 

11 February 2021  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in: ,

Our sixth form students and PE staff are looking forward to making five-a-side footballing a regular event, as soon as lockdown measures allow.  After having some great games, just before the Christmas break, with over 30 students taking part, they were disappointed not to be able to start 2021 with this weekly get-together at the fantastic Dave Clark Arena.

Uchenna Anyadiegwu, headboy, said: “Five-a-side Friday is the perfect opportunity to get more people in the sixth form involved in a sporting activity, brought about by the opening of the brand new 3G pitch. Having a casual five-a-side tournament on a Friday after college, with random teams of all abilities, is the perfect way to end the college week. Unfortunately, the lockdown is preventing us from playing at the moment but we look forward to meeting up again each week, once restrictions ease and we can return to some form of normality.”

Tony Potter, Leader of Sport, Leisure and Community, added: “It is great to see so many of our sixth form students actively involved in this new event and we can’t wait to see it back up and running again as soon as possible.”
