Having beaten Davington, we won our group. We then won our quarter-finals 5-0 against Herne Bay Juniors and semi-finals against St Mary's 3-0.

Premier League Stars - 2nd place runners-up!
Tuesday 13 March 2018
Well done to our Girls football team who had the amazing opportunity to compete in the Premier League Primary Star Football Competition at the University of Kent.
Right from kick off the girls played with amazing confidence and comfortably won six group matches consecutively and succeeded in winning their semi-final 1-0 to gain their place in the final against Upton, who proved a disciplined and relentless team. The girls dug in deep and with a last minute shot hitting the post just before the final whistle the match ended in a nail-biting 0-0. In extra time a well organised Upton proved too strong and unfortunately scored two great goals earning them a place to play at the regional finals at Leicester City FC.
