Well done to all the pupils who served the Academy as part of the SEN football team which was hosted on Wednesday 3rd April at St George's Park (Englands training base). They were split into two teams and played against 6 other teams from around Staffordshire of which there was only one other state mainstream school. They performed fantastically well showing great endurance over the afternoon by playing back to back 10 minute games. 



Moments of the afternoon -

Keiran Simmons showing an opposing goalkeeper empathy after they had blocked a stinging shot, Tyler Ferranti's endurance as he never stopped running all afternoon, all players for their reverence to the officials decisions, Kian Willis kept peace with his opponent by shaking hands immediately after his mistimed tackle, the trust they showed in each other being responsible for their own positions which they carried out superbly, particularly, when the pass went Ryan to score the winning goal in the penultimate game and Declan was extremely thankful for the 7 (seven) assists Josh provided for his 7 goals in one of the matches!
