Fantastic Football from CHS U9s Teams

CHS’s active Juniors were on the ball when they took a title win and showed themselves as tough competition in two recent football tournaments.  

Playing superbly against tough opposition from schools around the North West, the U9 boys’ team finished their most recent tournament unbeaten winning 4 games and drawing 2.

There were 6 matches for each team and the team with the most points at the end of the fixtures would be named the champions.

The clinching game came against the team leading on points, St Ambrose; to win the trophy CHS had to beat them.

Undeterred and showing resilience after going 1-0 down in the first half, CHS rallied to score 2 late goals in winning the game, 2-1.

CHS Sports Coach, Mr Martin Cooke said: “All the boys showed focus and a desire to win, I was particularly pleased with their ability to put all we have been practising tactically into the matches.”

The success follows the recent AJIS (Association of Junior Independent Schools) U9s Football Festival, hosted at CHS.

21 teams took part in the annual event and to the great credit of CHS’s ground staff, the tournament went ahead despite heavy rain in the days leading up to the tournament.

Boys and girls enjoyed a number of 5-a-side matches, played in a friendly atmosphere. CHS played 3 teams in the competition.

CHS Junior School Deputy Head, Mr Myles Mason said: “All of our players are showing real potential and it was great to see them playing with such an excellent attitude.
