The Byron Community Primary School boys’ team had a great a trip to Armidale for a football gala day and pulled off a memorable win.
Last week the BCPS Whales, 12 players from years five and six, competed in the North Coast Independent Schools football tournament.
‘We played three games. The first game we played EAC and lost 4–0. We then played the team who went on to win the championship, Bishop Druitt, and lost 7–0,’ Annie Roberts of the BCPS said.
The Whales won their last game against Blue Hills College 6–1.
‘The boys showed excellent sportsmanship and gelled together. We are already talking about returning next year.
‘Our BCPS girls will also have an opportunity to play in a football gala day early next term,’ she said.
