Siddal versus St. Joseph’s at The Shay

Pupils from Year 5 and 6 represented Siddal Primary School in the half time 5-a-side cup at The Shay during FC Halifax Town’s match against Chesterfield FC. The event was televised live on BT Sport and there were 2191 fans in attendance.

BT Sport televised our children on the pitch before the match and showed a clip of us playing against St. Joseph’s. BT Sport also chose to deliver their half time analysis with our children playing just behind them. The presenter commented that the quality of the children’s match was better than the main event!

Siddal played very well and the match was much closer than the 0-4 scoreline suggests! Many people approached us after the game to say how well we played and how our performance didn’t reflect the scoreline. We also managed to do a bit of networking and we have arranged another match against Parkinson Lane on the all weather surface at Calderdale College.

All the boys and girls had a great time. It was brilliant to see so many parents attending the game. Thank you for your continued support.  The pupils’ conduct on and off the pitch was excellent and they were a credit to the school. Well done Siddal!
