Goals galore at the Cowbridge Rotary seven a side football competition
Four schools entering five teams assembled at Cowbridge Comprehensive Schools ‘all weather’ pitch on a sweltering day. Those who watched were treated to a festival of football with more than 30 Goals scored during the competition. Mr Sam Bragg from St Brides Major Church in Wales Primary School who organised the event with Cowbridge Rotary said that the standard of football was very high as was the sportsmanship shown by all. Teams were well organised but mostly it was their skill and effort that was on show.
Y Bont Faen Primay School lost a close semi final to St Davids Church in Wales Primary School one - nil. St Brides A overcame Llangan Primary School in another tight match three - one. The final was a tight one with chances to settle it for both St Brides and St Davids. When the final whistle went the score was nil – nil. In a finish worthy of the World Cup, St Brides won on penalties two nil.
Paul Tromans, Chair of Cowbridge’s Youth committee thanked the school for the use of the pitch and Waitrose for donating much needed water on a hot day. But, he said, the real winners were those who took part in such a great competition.
