MSSA -Dodgeball Competition

DATE: 27th April 2017

VENUE: Birchfield Primary

YR GROUP - 3-6

SCHOOLS ENTERED: Asquith, Birchfield, Blackgates, Churwell, East Ardsley, Gildersome, Hill Top, Seven Hills, Morley Victoria & Westerton Primary

Altogether 10 schools from the Morley area attended with twelve teams in total as Gildersome and Birchfield both entered two. Each squad was made up of a minimum 8 players from years 3-6, boys and girls, which meant that there was at least 96 children participating, with a lot of staff and parent spectators in tow. The format was two leagues in which everyone played everyone once, and the two teams who came top played each other in the final, which was won in the end by Birchfield B, narrowly beating Morley Victoria in a closely contested match. As usual I had picked former pupils of ours  to referee and they did a great job. The weather was kind and I'm fairly sure everyone who was there enjoyed the event.

Thanks very much
