Vale and Melton Schools' Football Champions 2017-18


On the 22nd September 2017, Bottesford CE Primary ventured of to Asfordby Amateurs football Club to participate in the Vale and Melton Schools' football tournament. Having won the tournament for the last two years running, we began the tournament in high spirits. With the help of Mr Millard, we were able to take two teams to the competition. Bottesford B Team finished 6th overall in their group but showed great skill, determination and a positive spirit against some very tough opposition. 

Bottesford A-Team played exceptionally well, going undefeated in the group stages, finishing top of their group. This meant they progressed on to the final to play against Brownlow Primary School. After an exceptional performance against Brownlow Bottesford A-Team finished victorious for the third year in a row.

A fantastic achievement for the School and a huge well done to all the children involved.

On the 22nd September, Bottesford CE Primary School took three Boys' football teams and a Girls' football team to Brooksby Melton College to compete in the Vale and Melton Schools football tournament. Following our success in winning the competition the previous year, all three teams entered with great enthusiasm and high hopes in repeating the success.

The sun played ball and lots of fantastic football was on display throughout the entire competition. Our teams competed against other school including The Grove; Frisby; Stathern, Swallodale A and B Teams; Old Dalby and Ab Kettleby.

Our A-Team finished first for the second successive year. A massive thank you to Mr Millard for giving up his time and energy and volunteering to coach the A - Team to victory.  Our B-Team finished 7th and our C-Team finished a very respectable 10th place. A big thank you to Mr Andrews and Mrs Smith for helping the other teams be involved in a fantastic tournament.
