One Day One Goal promotes the power of football to unite people, give hope and strengthen peace-building efforts whilst raising awareness of Peace Day, Thursday, 21 September.
Our UN Peace Day match on Thursday, 21 September, saw a team from the Senior School up against the Sixth Form. The Senior School team, were 'managed' by Mr Spurrett and the Sixth Form by Mr Mannion. It was miserable weather, as it was raining and foggy. Despite the unfortunate weather, everyone played hard and had a good time. There was some impressive tackling and even a spectacular header from Kirsten Steel, 9G.
The first goal went to the Sixth Form much to Mr Mannion’s delight and although the senior girls fought hard, and had many attempts on goal, they didn't quite manage to score. The match finally came to a close at around 1:30pm, with Mr Spurrett cheering loudly for his team, though unfortunately it was 1:0 to the Sixth Form.
