JFS’ winning team

The latest Maccabi GB’s Secondary School Sports Tournament saw 15 teams from five schools take part in the Secondary Schools Boys Football Tournament for Years 7, 8 and 9. In total 150 young footballers participated in the event.

The tournament saw teams split into year groups and play each other in a league format. Every match was exciting with a competitive edge, as the groups reached the latter stages the games became even more exciting as the teams tried to edge closer to winning their groups.

The Year 7 group was won by JFS who managed a clean sweep of victories to claim their winner’s medals. The Year 8 and 9 groups were both won by Hasmonean. The afternoon concluded with the medals presentation to the victorious teams.

Maccabi GB’s Head of Sport, Matt Travers, said: “Tournament after tournament, male or female, secondary or primary, we are hitting way past the 100-person mark for the amount of young people we are engaging. Being able to put on these events is great for Maccabi GB and also for the schools involved. The competitive, but friendly, atmosphere we provide is something we aim to continue and we look forward to 2014 where we will be holding more School Sports Tournaments.”
