On Saturday 19 January a strong team from North Lakes School travelled to Carlisle to take part in the annual Sands Centre 5 a side tournament.
This is always a tough event featuring large schools from Cumbria and SW Scotland. North Lakes played four games, drawing 4-4 with Bishop Harvey Goodwin School, beating All Saints (Cockermouth) 1-0, and losing narrowly to Victoria Juniors (Workington) 4-3, and Stanwix School 2-1.
The team worked really hard for each other and improved rapidly over the morning so that by the end of the event they were a far stronger team than at the start, playing really good football. Their performance drew praise from a number of spectators, and behaviour was really good. Well done to Tom S, Matthew L, Liam S, Luke, Nathan, Ben V, James, and Jay Mc.
Many thanks to Mr Lee, Mr Ellis and all our supporters on the day.
