Wednesday, June 19 – TCES Group converge on the pitches at Brentwood Leisure Centre in Essex for the annual inter-schools football tournament.
Teams from Witham and Clacton Essex Fresh Start, East London Independent School, Create London and North West London Independent School all gathered to compete on what began a dark and dreary day. Somewhat miraculously the rain held off which allowed the skills and sportsmanship of our players to shine.
Above, NWLIS player Tia represented the only female competing in the tournament.
Each team was divided into two, A and B, and arranged according to age. The results are as below:
Clacton A 1 vs NWLIS A 1
ELIS A 3 vs Clacton A 0
ELIS A 2 vs NWLIS A 1
