St Veronica’s Soccer Starlets Shine
Following in the footsteps of the older children earlier in the school year, St Veronica’s Year 3 & 4 Football Team swept all before them to become the Rossendale Leisure Trust Tournament champions.
They qualified from a tough group, containing Stubbins, St Mary’s Rawtenstall and eventual finalists St John’s, with an impressive plus fifteen goal difference to force their way to the finals.
In the finals at Fearns High School, St Veronica’s finished top of their group with a 100% record after playing Helmshore, St James the Less and Thorn, to set up an exciting final against St John’s.
The final began in the same way as most of the earlier fixtures with St Veronica’s taking an early lead before settling down to their tidy rhythm of passing and moving which gave each child the opportunity to showcase their individual skills. One goal rapidly turned into two, and then three, as victory and the trophy was secured.
