East London Panathlon - Football Finals Newham

21st October 2016

On Wednesday 19 October a football squad of our students  took part in the East London Panathlon Football finals at Newham.  We entered two teams,  Under 13 and Under 16, who competed against teams from Islington, Waltham Forest, Barking &  Dagenham, Newham and Redbridge. The Under 13s won their competition, the under 16s came third.  Overall we came second and have therefore qualified for the London Panathlon Football finals at Wembley on 29 November,  when the top two teams from the West, South, North and East of London will compete. 

The students were very close to winning the competition on Wednesday,  only losing on goal difference against the winning team from Waltham Forest.  Everyone played very well and deserved to qualify.

Mr Hajdrych was very proud of the performance, sporting attitude and team spirit of the squad, Stormont House represented Hackney in a fantastic manner.  Mr Hajdrych will be holding trials for the teams that will go to Wembley very soon  -  more news to follow.
