Our Year 6 Football Team took part in the Timperley Shield competition on Monday afternoon. The competition sees the top 2 teams from the qualifying rounds battling it out to be crowned area champions. Audlem placed in their qualifier competition already marking the team as in the top third of all local primary schools! We played extremely well throughout the tournament and the sportsmanship and camaraderie on show was exceptional from all players. During the group stage of the competition, the team played well, passing accurately a building pressure in all games. We progressed to the final match in second place in our group, meaning our final game was the third / fourth place play off. The team again played brilliantly but unfortunately couldn't quite come back despite the goal of the tournament being scored in the dying seconds of the match.
Overall, the Year 6 team came fourth in the Timperely Shield – the culmination of football competitions open to all primary schools in Crewe, Nantwich and the surrounding rural area – a huge well done to the team!
