Young footballers demonstrate great resilience despite loss

The Year 8 boys’ football team played St John Fisher recently. Despite losing the game 12:0, the students put in a great effort. Harry Beresford, team coach, said: “I am incredibly proud of the team, they were 8-0 down at half time, their heads could have dropped but they didn’t. The character and resilience that was shown to continue to put in 100% effort was greatly admirable, to the point of the opposition manager recognising this and he came to speak to the team at the end of the game. He said that “the character shown was fantastic and they should be really proud of themselves”. We take the defeat on the chin and move forward onto the next fixture, it was definitely a learning curve for the boys, one that I can tell they have already learned from.”
Isaac Tate was man of the match for showing unbelievable character and resilience to continue to play with his head held high, encouraging his team mates to succeed despite losing the game in a very difficult way. Isaac continually showed positivity by wanting to work hard for the team by winning the ball back, trying to push the team forward so that we could create chances to score, Isaac’s infectious positivity helped the team play with their hearts on their sleeve, giving it absolutely everything, to the point where other players showed the same positivity as Isaac.
