OWN Trust Cup Football Match

By Ben Cowles, PE Lead, Orton Wistow Primary School (OWN Trust)

On Monday 18th October, Orton Wistow Primary School Year 5/6 Football Team played against Woodston Primary School.

Over the last two academic years, it has been challenging to get competitive games organised. This was the first competitive match that Orton Wistow children had competed in for over a year.

One of the benefits of being part of the OWN trust is the added relationship between the schools. Between Orton Wistow Primary School, Woodston Primary School and Nene Valley Primary School, the OWN cup has been created. It stems from three different sporting events across the year.

Woodston Primary School hosted the game on what was a very wet and windy day to compete in the first game of this new competition. Woodston was a very strong team, showing brilliant skills throughout the opening exchanges. It came as no surprise when they opened the scoring. The half-time whistle blew and Orton Wistow found themselves 3-0 down, which included a stunning goal by the Woodston keeper from the goal line.

Orton Wistow showed brilliant desire and passion on the pitch and a few changes were made. The Orton Wistow team then came out in the second half and scored two quick goals. The game ended 4-2 to Woodston - congratulations to them for a deserved win. 

The boys and girls from both schools who competed in the game did themselves and their schools proud. A highly competitive game started the OWN Cup in fantastic style!
