Having been unable to play football fixtures for 18 months due to COVID restrictions, the Yarrells School Under 11 football team were thrilled and extremely excited to be competing again.
On Friday 24th September they took part in the Milton Abbey U11’s football festival, where they beat all the other schools taking part. In a closely contested final, they drew 1-1 with Dumpton School, but were crowned festival winners as they had beaten their opponents earlier during the group stage. They were also the only school to include a girl in their squad.
Yarrells’ U11 coach Gary Schneider enthused:
“It was a real team performance, with everyone in the squad working so hard for each other. Their attitude and commitment was second to none, and they played some outstanding football.”
