The World Cup came to town when Barnsley Academy hosted a special tournament for local Primary Schools last week.
Organised by Primary Sports Co-ordinator Chris Wood, the event saw Worsbrough Bank End take on the role of Argentina, with Hunningley fielding two teams as Russia and France, Ward Green as Brazil and Forest Academy as Mexico.
The tournament saw each team play each other once, with the top two teams ‘Brazil and France’, meeting in the final, with Brazil coming out as 1-0 victors. The game was played in great spirits, with support provided by Barnsley Academy’s PE staff.
Commented Chris Wood:
“The event was a great success, with the children not only getting into the competitive spirit, but also enjoying the opportunity to interact with pupils from other local schools.”
