4 A Side Football

Burstwick took on Paull School at 4 a side football on Wednesday 21st October. Each school fielded 3 teams, with each team playing the 3 sides from the opposing school in matches lasting 4 minutes. The short duration of each match meant that games were exciting and full of energy.
In the first game Paull scored the opening goal and led for nearly the whole match until Burstwick scored an equaliser just before full-time. That was to be Paull’s only goal as Burstwick dominated. The final result was Burstwick won 5 of the 9 games, with the other 4 being draws.
There were some great individual performances by players from both schools in addition to excellent teamwork in every game.
Burstwick’s players were Harvey S, Ella H, Jessica Y, Noah J, Grace W, James H, Harvey B, Harry G, Thomas W, Leoni M, Charlotte M, Jacob B, Alex M.
