On Wednesday night, the Boys' team took on the best in Derwentside.
Following group wins against Burnhope, All Saints and Lanchester, the team took on Annfield Plain in their toughest game yet in the semi-finals. Thanks to heroic goalkeeping, defending and lovely passing moves, we won 3-1 and faced East Stanley in the final.
In a tense match, Tanfield Lea won out 2-0 and lifted the Eddie Embleton Cup- a first trophy in 3 years!
The boys really deserved it for their teamwork, determination and above all skill - we're very proud of them all!

Following the girls' super video earlier in the week, here is the boys' fantastic effort!
They beat Delves 4-0 and drew with St. Mary's 0-0 in tonight's action!
Great effort- I'm not sure about the comment that fun starts after school though!

Punctuation - " ", ! ? .... - - ( )
Powerful words - especially for movement and feelings.

The Olympics is drawing ever closer; here is a film created by Michael Morpurgo, the famous children's author. I was surprised to see his name on the credits, but surely it's a sign of quality. What do you think? Are you impressed by the video or should he stick to writing children's novels?
I wish I could capture a rainbow like that on my phone!
