Today’s football festival was for many of our students, the first time that they have represented APS at football or any other sport. Although, moving forward we hope there will be many more chances in the future with several London Youth Games Competitions next year.

The APS football squad received high praise from the THFC Foundation coaching staff and they should be very proud of their achievements. The players showed a fantastic attitude in their first football festival, often playing against much older and more experienced opponents.

At the closing ceremony APS players were presented with certificates, acknowledging their demonstration of the Premier League Values – Ambition; Fair Play; Teamwork; and Inspiration. Today’s festival was as much about developing life skills, as it is about improving football skills.

James; Randy and Ray were commended by THFC staff for embodying the spirit of the game and presented with their awards by Chirpy the THFC mascot. We would like to thank the Foundation for inviting APS to this year’s Girls and Boys Inclusive Football Festivals and look forward to returning in the New Year to develop our skills further.
