Thursday 3rd February saw another exciting round of school football matches involving Greswold teams. Although the girls' team's league match against Berkswell was cancelled and forfeited by the opposition, the 'A' team played their fifth league game of the season and the 'B' team made an appearance too against a very strong year 5 Widney team.
Both matches were extremely gripping for all spectators, especially the Greswold families who again attended in high numbers and offered their usual vocal support!
Crossbars were clattered on numerous occasions, magnificent saves were made by both Greswold goalkeepers, near misses were in abundance and the sportsmanship and values demonstrated by all players was again evident throughout. Even though the boys in the 'B' team were disheartened by their 3-1 defeat, it didn't stop them from giving a belting three cheers to the well deserving opposition of Widney School.
The 'A' team came away with an admirable 0-0 draw against Balsall Common with last ditch tackles a plenty, tireless running throughout and the chance to nick the win in the final seconds but for a match saving deflection from the opposition defender. Well done Greswold, your reputation of trying your best, respecting the opposition and representing the school superbly was again on show tonight.
