07.11.18 Y3/4 Boys football Barnsley finals

 What an afternoon at the Y3/4 Barnsley football finals, with driving rain all afternoon the team went through the group stage to then meet High View in the semi final. It was a very evenly matched game but 2 minutes into extra time Barugh Green scored the golden goal sending them into the final.

In the final we met Birkwood, another nail-biter with Birkwood scoring first but then after a relentless onslaught Barugh Green equalised. The game went to extra time but unfortunately it wasn’t to be Barugh Green’s day with Birkwood scoring the golden goal with seconds left. Well done boys 2018 runners up.



06.11.18 Y5/6 Boys football Barnsley finals 

Below are the boys that took part in the Y5/6 Barnsley football finals and became Champions.

They were in a group of 7 teams and came 2nd in that group with Penistone St. John’s coming top of the group. Barugh Green went through to the semi finals to face Silkstone who were top of their group. After a very tight game Barugh Green were triumphant winning 2-0 on penalties.

In the final we met Penistone St. John’s again, another very close game with both teams hitting the wood work. Finally a breakthrough was made from a free kick and Barugh Green stole the day with a 1-0 win... Well done boys!
