On Saturday 21st April five children (4 girls and 1 boy) from MJS represented South Derbyshire in the English Schools Football Association Regional Finals in Sheffield.
The girls team finished equal top of the group with three wins and two draws. This put them level with Bolsover, so the dreaded penalty shoot-out was required. Sadly, South Derbyshire did not prevail! However, it was a fantastic achievement and our 4 girls (Katie, Charlotte, Florrie and Abbie) played a key part in the result.
The boys team went all the way through to the final, but again finished runner-up, losing 2-0. Leo was our sole representative in this very strong district team.
Well done to all and a big thank you to the South Derbyshire Active Schools team and parents for creating this opportunity for the children.
