On Wednesday 9th of May 2012 the Football Academy arranged futsal tournament for the sixth form to raise money for World Challenge. Click the title to read the full match report from Mr Bailey.
A range of stars from the sixth form, football academy, year 11’s, physio’s, pro footballers and wannabe Palace manager Mr Lee all took part to raise around £50 for World Challenge. The tournament turned out to be a tight affair, Robbie Bennett quoted ‘I loved the tournament, I wish it happened every week, it was very emotional’. Only Deportivo Lackatalent lived up to their name, managing to lose every game by a single goal. The final two teams Shaktar Don’task and Bayer Neverlusen fought out an epic playoff game that went down to the wire, with a Harry ‘one a season’ Stoneham scoring a deflected pea roller to win the prestigious solid silver trophy. Some of the chubbier players who played for Fatzio managed to eat their way to 3rd place after defeating the legendary Beersolona managed by Alan Bailey. The favourites, who tried their best, Real Sosobad captained by Jack Stracey who later on said ‘I feel Harry Stoneham’s team were worthy winners and I wish I was as good as him’ managed to finish an amazingly lucky fifth place due to too many late nights."
