Last Saturday Mr. Dyson took our football team to the Packham Cup District schools tournament held at Ryefield School. The team progressed to the quarter-finals to play Cherry Lane School In a very close match and after extra time had been played it came down to penalties. With great courage our players stepped up to take their shots and it was extremely tense watching. Some great goalkeeping from Kiran kept St. Helen's in the competition; we won 6 - 5 on penalties to progress to the semi finals and face Cowley St Lawrence. In the semi finals our team played very well again and at full time the match was drawn 0-0. It was to be the second St. Helen's match of the day that went to extra time. Unfortunately this time our team lost 2 - 0 after extra time and Cowley went on to win the trophy. Congratulations to all of our players who played extremely well all morning.
