Whitefield football teams make it to Wembley

Two football teams from Whitefield Schools made a fantastic showing at the Panathlon football tournament in November.  The teams fought their way through regional qualifying heats to join 200 players from the top 16 boroughs at Wembley.

Whitefield’s under 13 and under 16 teams came fourth in their first round,  narrowly missing out a chance to play in the Championship competition, but then did well in the runners-up Plate competition. The under 13s team came 2nd with the under 16s coming 6th, meaning that Whitefield came fourth overall. The whole school is very proud of the students’ achievement.

The Panathlon Challenge is a national charity which provides sporting opportunities for over 4,000 young people with special needs or disabilities each year. Its sporting programmes includes primary and secondary multi-sport events, swimming, football and boccia. You can find out more at: www.panathlon.com
