Unity Cup – Dubai
Over the weekend of 6-9 March Mr Holness, Mr Dawson and Mr Ross took 15 boys from the Junior School Football Team to Dubai to take part in the Unity Cup. After a shaky start the footballers found their feet and were soon banging in the goals from all areas of the pitch, even managing to beat U12 opposition.
After 2 days of grueling football the team managed 2nd place and Mr Holness was extremely proud of their performances both on and off the pitch. The team were a real credit and represented the school with pride and great sportsmanship. Abdulla Maseeh, “I was really proud of our team spirit, as we never gave up. It was a really fun trip to have fun with my friends”.
Fritz Tautenhahn even managed to bag the top goal scorer prize, finding the net 17 times over 8 games – surely he must be in consideration for the Ballon d’ Or next year?
The team was: Louis Mulleague, Joel Watts, Dominic Rogers, Hamad Al Khalifa, Callum Dawson, Cameron Sandy, Colby Altman, Fritz Tautenhahn, Hussain Al Arrad, Spike Thomas, Harry Cooke, Luke Williamson, Stan Szecowka, Abulla Maseeh, Faaris Fayyaz and Finley Matthews
