Year 6 Boys Football - Champions of the City
After some terrific performances at the King Power Stadium, ARH have been crowned Leicester School’s League Division 1 Champions 2016! The boys thoroughly deserved it after putting in months of effort and grinding through two initial league stages earlier in the year before arriving at yesterday’s grand final! With so much to play for, the boys were keen to bring their A-game to the home of the Premier League Champions and they did not disappoint! Captain Lewis Smith-Barnacle stated that he was “Filled up with joy,” upon raising the cup in front of what was close to 1,000 spectators!
It wasn’t all plain sailing however as a dreaded penalty shootout was needed to win the semi-final but great composure was shown by Harry Howkins before Tom Barsby (Co-Vice Captain) stepped up and slotted away the decider despite later explaining that he was tremendously nervous! Kian (Co-Vice Captain) stated, “I was overwhelmed by the cacophony of noise,” and it was fitting that the squad achieved this magnificent feat in front of such an audience. Well done to everyone, the team, coaches and supporters!
