Last Saturday saw the football team head to Newark Flowserve, for the annual Spring Tournament. In a tough group, Highfields were pitched against: Coddington, Muskham, Chuter Ede, Barnby Road and Bishop Alexander. First up, saw us take on Coddington; a tight game was settled by a moment of magic, as Shahid, taking aim 25 yards from goal, sent a looping volley past the despairing keeper.
Unfortunately, we failed to hit those heights again in the following fixtures, losing by the odd goal. However, we did manage to rally one last time in the final game of the morning. A strong defensive platform, from Jaden , Olly and Will, allowed the willing runners of Brodie, Bertie, Alfie and Harry to get forward and set up Shahid to tuck away the only chance of the game, 1 – 0.
A fantastic morning in the Spring sunshine, with great support from the side lines.
Well done to all!
