Apologies again for the technical issues in the delay in making this post.
Last Tuesday, we entered two mixed teams to the Amber Valley Heanor Cluster competition at Aldercar High School. Following on from our huge success last year and as County Champions, we knew the competition would be stiff this time around, however the children gave 100% as always. Our B team improved greatly throughout the tournament and for their consistent sporting behaviour were awarded a Sporting Achievement award , with a particular mention for Tom Goodliffe in Year 6 , for showing fairness to other players and supporting the referees decisions.
Our other Team won most of their games and drew only one against local rivals Mandy Juniors A . Both teams shared the same results at the final count up therefore both go through to the Borough Finals, however Smalley finished in overall first position with the most baskets scored throughout, winning a medal and certificate each, along with another trophy.
A fantastic performance from all our children and very proud of their passion and desire but more importantly, that sportsmanship that we always show to every other school and each other.
Many thanks to Mr Thorpe for his invaluable help on the sideline and to all our parents for their support , as always.
Borough Finals , here we come!
