Year 8 students impress at Walsall District Under 13’s football game
Match Report: Walsall District vs Telford & Wrekin
Last week PE teacher Martin Mallott took two of our talented Year 8 students, Seyoum Hawkins and Soms Sibanda, to attend the Walsall District U13’s football trials. After impressing the manager they were soon told they were in the squad for the game at the weekend.
On Saturday 22nd September 2012, Seyoum and Soms both made their debuts and came on in the second half, partnering each other up front. Soms had some excellent chances but was denied a goal by some superb saves by the Telford goalkeeper. Seyoum soon got involved in the game, impressing with some excellent skill on the wing, crossing a ball across the six yard box for another player to score. After a nail biting game it finished 5-4 to Telford.
Mr Mallott observed that ‘our students played excellently and it was a pleasure to take them to the game and represent not only our academy but also Walsall District. I wish the boys the best for their next game on Saturday 29th September and I hope they continue to flourish and gain valuable sporting experiences’.
