Today was a very successful day for year 5 at the recent city-wide football finals held at Manchester City Football Academy.

After making it to the city-wide finals through the challenging rounds, we were up against the best of the rest of the city. The schools in the competition were from north, south, east and central Manchester. St John’s were representing central Manchester. After losing one match we went through as runners up and then were undefeated until the end. After a brilliant display of skill and teamwork the Y4/5 boys were crowned Manchester champions!
