EFL Kids Cup

Football Tournament 

Today (13th January 2023) boys from Borrow Wood took part in a football tournament with other schools from in and around Derby. Taking the format the world cup, with a group stage followed by knockout matches, the Borrow Wood players were looking to be one of only two teams - from fourteen - to progress through to the next phase at Derby County's Moor Farm training ground. 


After a win, a loss and two clean sheets in the group stage they made it through to the quarter finals where they were beaten by Homefields Primary. Despite this, they all had a fantastic time and their behaviour and sportsmanship was excellent throughout. 


Cloudside School from Sandiacre and Curzon School from Quarndon were the schools heading through to the next phase. Luckily all was not lost however, as they arrived back in time for an hour of Design and Technology to round off a very enjoyable day. 

Well done Douglas, Xander, Aaron, Josh, Andy, Tapiwa, Raife and Harry.
