Having had a successful year of football, St Chris was ready to take on the local schools in the last tournament of the year at Bayan School. The girls were first to compete with two of our teams playing really well in both of their pools. There was some great defending from Trudy Beckett-McInroy and some remarkable attacking from Kyla Reekie, Alex Myatt, Nayfah Al Ali and Maya Husain. Having finished top of the pool, St Chris A went head to head with Bayan School in the final. We played really well and finished a respectable second.

Well done to the following players:

Jamiela Haseid Nayfah Al Ali
Alex Myatt Imaan Makdoum
Chloe Maxwell Tara Maye
Gracie Nahle Kathleen Holland
Kyla Reekie Leena Makdoum
Ruby Mitchel Maya Husain
Trudy Beckett-McInroy Talia Husain
Sophie Moir

Next, it was the boys turn with the team looking for a triumphant return in this competition. We entered 2 teams and decided to mix the teams this year. One of our teams sailed through to the straight final with local rivals BSB. After going 1-0 up BSB soon equalized making for a tense last 7 minutes. However, we soon started to dominate again and with the driving force of the Year 5’s behind us we put 2 more past the BSB keeper, making the final score 3-1.

The players were excellent and were:

Ali Al Nusuf Thomas Roycroft
Saef Al Nusuf James Pilgrim
Vince Vrijhof Jubran Al Asfoor
Noah Moore Bailey Kincaid
Issam Khan John Kenny
Sam Fisher James Kenny
Brandon Marshall Majed Alami
Yousif Al-Mahoozi
