On Tuesday 2nd November, Finton House hosted its annual U8 Football Tournament on Trinity Fields.
The sun was shining down on Trinity Fields as Finton House prepared to face The Roche School, Rutherford House, Eaton House The Manor, Chepstow House and Broomwood Hall in a series of 6-a-side football matches. The tournament, organised by Mr Anthony Dalton (Head of Games), is the first football tournament Finton has hosted since before lockdown. Mr Anthony has been at Finton for 24 years and, during that time, has organised around 100 of these tournaments; you can watch a mid-match interview with him conducted by our School Reporters on our Instagram here.
Mr Anthony said, “The A team met Rutherford House in a nail-biting thriller of a final, with both teams undefeated until that point. At the last moment, Rutherford snatched the victory as they scored three goals in as many minutes. It was a great afternoon filled with friendly competition and a wonderful atmosphere.”
Finton House is looking forward to hosting its next football tournament on Monday 22nd November, which will see Year 4 compete against ten other schools on Trinity Fields.
