2018 Crossroads Annual 3-a-side Primary Schools Football Tournament
The annual Crossroads Football Tournament took place in Sir E. Scott School on Wednesday the 21st of February with teams from Leverburgh and Sir E. Scott school competing. Similar to previous years, the revised competition format consisted of mixed teams from the two schools. This ensured a closely fought tournament which, once again, produced some thrilling games of football and fine displays of sportsmanship.
The final between the Lions and the Sharks was an enthralling and closely fought game with the Lions taking an early lead; however it was Luke Johnson who secured the winning goal for the Sharks to win the game 2 -1 and claim the title of Crossroads Champions 2018.
Playing in the final were the following:
Lions: Mark Morrison, Christina Mackenzie, Bethany Macleod, Alasdair Morrison
Sharks: Luke Johnson, Emma Macinnes, Domhnall Macrae, Chloe Macdonald
In the running for the ‘Player of the Tournament’ trophy there were a variety of players from all of the teams in contention for the honour, with each displaying a high level of skill, goal scoring ability, fitness and team leadership throughout the tournament.
The following were nominated: Calum Johnston, Luke Johnson, Mark Morrison, Christina Mackenzie, Ryan Morrison and Coll Leishman. The tournament referees decided that Mark’s consistent excellent display of the key physical and personal qualities that contribute to a good individual and team performance was more than enough evidence to secure the honour of being this year’s recipient of the award.
Many thanks must once again go to the ‘Crossroads’ organisation for kindly sponsoring the tournament, providing the refreshments and presenting the tournament prizes. Also, many thanks to all of the parents, friends and staff who accompanied their children and gave such great vocal support to all of the teams throughout the evening.
Furthermore, a special mention to the following Sir E. Scott Secondary Pupils –
Jacob Johnson, Connor Macdonald and Jessica Macleod, who volunteered their time and ably assisted with the refereeing and organisation of the tournament.
This fixture in the school sporting calendar also serves to highlight and remind both pupils and parents the fantastic work that Crossroads carry out within our community. As a school and community we are grateful for their continued commitment and efforts.
