Mr Priestley and his team of junior footballers played John Scottus School in a series of challenge games on Wednesday, 17th May.

The junior footballers of Stratford College faced nearby rivals John Scottus School in a series of challenge games played across four pitches simultaneously. Stratford’s teams had been coached by their fifth year mentors in preparation for the day’s action and they were keen to put their training into effect.  The matches were hard-fought and well-contested.

All players are looking forward to meeting their rivals again early in the next school year.      
Football training takes place after school every Tuesday and participation levels have been steadily increasing in-line with the improving skill set and competitive attitude of our footballers.
Mr. Priestley
