Greenfield Community College, Sedgefield SSP and Local Primary Schools, work in partnership to provide regular football fixtures for local Primary School children throughout the year. Thursday 18th Sept was the launch of the Autumn term Sedgefield SSP Yr 5/6 football league at the College.
Well done to Newton Aycliffe Schools who made an excellent start to the league, and are standing in 1st, 2nd & 3rd position after the 1st week. With Stephenson Way A in 1st place, Woodham Burn 2nd & Byerley Park 3rd. This was after Stephenson Way went down 2 - 0 in the first few minutes of their first game, to come back and win the game 3-2.
Next week five other Newton Aycliffe teams will start their league, at the site. Good luck to Stephenson Way B, Woodham Burn B, Vane Road A & B & Sugar Hill.
Last year the Primary pupils asked if they could have larger goals. Greenfield have a range of smaller 5-aside goals and larger 9 & 11 a-side goals, but could only offer 1 set of the 7 a-side goals. Primary pupils were delighted when local Councillors offered their support, and funded a 2nd set of goals for their tournaments.
Thank you to the following who made a very kind contribution from their Member Initiative fund: Councillor Mike Dixon, Joan Gray, John Clare, Kate Hopper, Eddy Adam, Sarah Iveson and Jed Hillary, to support local children, football development and a healthy active lifestyles.
