Thorp’s football team got off to an amazing start in the Oldham Primary Schools League at Chapel Road on Thursday night. The league consists of twelve teams and Thorp will be playing every Thursday until spring half term. They played two 15 minute games against St Margaret’s and Whitegate End this week, winning both matches 5-0!
The boys played with fantastic desire and drive right from the first minute. They were first to every loose ball and were positive at every opportunity. Every boy in the squad played their part, with some excellent passing, selfless play and driving runs. The finishing throughout the side was devastating, with five different scorers on the team sheet.
We look forward to next week, where the team will be careful to keep their feet on the ground and play with the same great attitude. Thanks to all the parents who gave lifts and came to support us. I know they enjoyed it.
