Our team of 11 talented footballers won all 8 matches in their group, conceding no goals at the tournament held on Tuesday at Llandudno Football Club. Nine teams played altogether in their group, from other schools within the County (27 schools altogether) and with 100% success, our team were the worthy winners within their group gaining 24 points and scoring 17 goals. The team comprised of Joe Belmont, Frankie Montgomery, Cieran Williams, Frankie Lynch, Joshua Lee, Bryn Williams, Flavio Cabras, Lucas Thomas, Callum Noke, Sam Ratcliffe and Thomas Guinn.
