On Tuesday 24th October, a mixed year 5 and 6 football team took part in the Jubilee Shield that happens every year. Schools from Blackburn with Darwen come together over three nights of qualification to compete in an attempt to make it through to the finals. This year, like every other year, the competition was of high standard. Selected for the team were:
Leighton Griffin, Sophie and Joseph Wood, Bradley Evans, Denton Rostron, Harrison Moore, Jack Hoole and Dylan Shuttleworth.
It was on a cold, wet and miserable night, but this didn't put off our footballers. They battled on together and worked hard winning 2 out of our 4 games. Unfortunately, we didn't get through to the finals. Hopefully, next year we will come back stronger and achieve this. A big thank you to all the parents who turned up to support their child. It's always fantastic to see parents of Meadowhead Junior School cheer on the boys and girls.
