SJB CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
As the half term draws to an end so we have seen the emergence of another wonderful opportunity for the boys to play sport in mixed ability groups. Just as we have seen the St John’s IPL we are now delighted to welcome the St John’s Champions League Football Tournament. The boys, as one would expect, have thrown themselves into this competition with tremendous enthusiasm. The teams have been named after some of Europe’s greatest football clubs (Real Madrid, Ajax, Liverpool to name but a few) and competed in a range of fixtures.
My particular highlight was the gargantuan fixture between Ajax and Bayern Munich which tested the nerves of those watching! A 3-0 lead was surrendered to make it 3-3 with seconds to go, with Ajax emerging the winners with a last gasp goal. Fantastic stuff and it was wonderful to see the boys supporting each other so well.
