Sporting News Update

05th May 2017

Our year 6 Football team have been training since September with our coach Kim Bessant and Sport and PE lead Mrs Gardiner. They have participated in two other major tournaments this year, finishing second in both, but on Friday 28th April they were the champions at the Stafford and District Schools Sport Association annual six a side tournament held at Leasowes Primary. The team did not concede a goal in the rounds to progress to he semi final against Leasowes team A. They won 1-0 to make the final against Berkswich. It was a closely fought final game that ended 2-1. The new kit, kindly funded by our generous PTA group must have been their lucky charm! 
 
The team, made up of Rudi Tindall, James Wood, Ben Hackett, Aqeel Ghisa, Josh Muir, Aidan Dustan, Harvey Talbot and Harry Camsell brought home the first trophy John Wheeldon Primary Academy have won in memorable history.
