The Road to Wembley - Saturday 18th November
Chingford C of E boys' football team gallantly fell at the last hurdle in an attempt to represent Leyton Orient in the National League's Road to Wembley competition held at 'Score" on Saturday, 18th November.
Having won their group stage without conceding a goal and beating St Mary's on penalties in a hard fought semi-final, the boys lost in the final 2-0 to Churchfields.
As finalists, the boys later took to the pitch at Brisbane Road to act as flag bearers and a guard of honour as the O's players ran out onto the pitch against Dover Athletic.
Although the boys were disappointed not to go onto the next stage of the competition, they had a wonderful day out and once again showed they are among the best teams in the Borough.

This week saw the start of a 3 week netball training league take place on the KS2 site. Eighteen year 5 and 6 children took part in matches against Normanhurst, Parkside, longshaw and Larkswood schools. The children played fantastically well and christened our brand new netball posts! It has been great to see the children using these at playtimes also.
The Girls' football team continued their league at Goals. Well done A team who won both matches and are top of the league! The B team lost both matches but Mr Winspear, their coach, has reported that they all continue to gain confidence.
Running club concluded this week and the bi-annual Borough Cross Country race will take place at Chingford Plains on Saturday morning at 10am. Good luck to the runners!
