Rewards Trip To Old Trafford

SPA Attitude to Learning rewards trip to Old Trafford

12 pupils were selected due to their attitudes in lesson grade for a trip to Old Trafford to see Manchester United take on FC Midtjylland from Denmark. The evening started with a journey up the lovely M6 followed by a quick burger and visit to the club ‘Megastore’. We then took our seats behind the goal in the East stand.

It was a game United had to win by two goals in order to progress to the next round. The game started badly for the English team conceding a goal and missing a penalty in their quest to get into the last 16 of the Europa League. However, an accomplished 2nd half performance saw Manchester United run out 5-1 winners on the night and 6-3 winners over the 2 legs. Manchester United will now play Liverpool in the last 16 of the competition.

The pupils from Year 7 were Ethan Brookfield, Sydney Jackson, Alvin Gaynor, Megan Stevenson. From Year 8; Daniel Allen, Tyler Ferranti, John Baber and Sky Keeling. Year 9; Olivia Brookes, Katie Taylor, Jade Birkin, Connor Taylor.

A special thanks should go to Mrs Rubin for agreeing to accompany us for the night (we got back at 11.40pm – well past my bedtime; never mind the pupils!) and also Alvin Gaynor’s granddad who had arranged a special message for us on the screens at the start and at half time.
