St Albans & District Primary Schools have had a thoroughly enjoyable few weeks.

It began when they attended the 48th Jersey Festival last week, playing six games in six days against teams from Wokingham, Newbury, Gloucester, Hackney and the host island teams.

The Blues played superbly against strong opposition and returned with a decent record of a win and two draws from their matches.

Their goals were shared around too. Dyer, Norton-Samuda, Kennedy and Joseph each got three and Ellis one.

Player of the week went to Norton-Samuda.

The Yellows though were unbeaten having won five and drawn one of their six.

Mendez-Barral led the scoring with seven, Kosh got four, Gibbons three and Duncan two.

Tolley, Holian, Stewart and Hodgkinson were also among the goals while Kosh was player of the week.

A spokesman said: "It is the ninth time the association has visited Jersey and it gets better each year.

"Activities such as adventure golf, bowling, swimming at Aquasplash, visiting the amazing beaches and sand dunes, building sand castles, karaoke, talent show with Irish dancing and solo singing, plus making life friends and playing football all week.

"It makes it a perfect holiday."

And the Yellows continued the good times by reaching the finals day of the Southern Counties Cup, beating Barking & Dagenham 7-5.

Goals from Charlie Stewart, Eden Kosh, Sandro Mendez, Barral, Finlay Holian, Buddy Beeby and Rasmus Duncan, who got two sent them to a semi-final against Hackney at Oxford City on May 18.

The final, should they get there, will be against either Gloucester or Wokingham.

The spokesman added: "It wasn’t a vintage performance and the game was all but over at 7-2 but Barking & Dagenham staged a late fightback in the last eight minutes."
