  • Footballing Glory for St James' boys team

    Published 11/10/21

    On Tuesday afternoon the St James' boys football team kicked off their 2021-22 season with a resounding win over local rivals Redriff Primary School.

    After 18 months of no competitive fixtures you could sense the excitement from the fans as they eagerly anticipated the performance to come. And what a performance it was; within the opening couple of minutes SJPFC (as we have been aptly named) took the lead from a fantastic bottom corner finish from Jordan. This goal was then followed by Zion, opening his account to make it two, with both goals assisted by our centre mid- maestro, Aiden. It was then time for our only Year 5 in the team, Senay, to repay the faith the manager has put in him. Three goals, including an incredible solo effort where he took on half the Redriff defence gave the boys from Bermondsey a resounding lead. But it wasn’t just in attack where SJPFC showed their quality.  Joshua and Raf S  in defence kept the Redriff attack at back and when they did get the chance, Wesam was standing tall in goal and made countless saves to keep the opposition out. Raf K M saw the half off nicely, finding himself perfectly positioned to tuck the ball away after Senay had hit the post.
