Premier League Schools Tournament
Goodison Park 2016
On the 17th of March 2016, eight exited boys set out to make history for Childwall CE representing Everton Football Club in the Premier League Schools Tournament.
We headed out at seven o’clock in the morning travelling on the school mini bus ready for a big day ahead. When we arrived, we took our tracksuits off and put our boots on.
The team went and lined up on the pitch to go down the tunnel for the opening ceremony of the tournament. While we were waiting for the other teams to go on the pitch Mighty Red (Liverpool’s mascot) and Chang (Everton’s mascot) came over to talk to us. We were showing them handshakes and they were showing us dance moves.
All the teams eventually got on the pitch and we went down into the tunnel. Everyone team was in there and they were all up for it. We walked out holding the Everton flag and our whole year group cheered us on.
After, we went to the first team dressing room where the BPL trophy was, we took photos it. It was exciting to see the trophy not on a television screen but in real-life.
We had a lot of time before our first game so we went outside to the parking area. We warmed up by doing lots of different fun activities. Once we were ready for our first game against Southampton we went onto the pitch. We started our first game on a high with goals from Joe, winning 2-0. Then we had a little rest and a drink.
The game after that was against Manchester City it was the toughest group match but we just managed to pull the win out of the bag by winning 1-0.
We had a short rest before are next game against Stoke City who have also won all of their games and if we didn’t win we wouldn’t be able to progress through to the semi-finals. We then found out that we were playing in-front of our year group/ fans which gave us a huge boost.
We walked over to the pitch and the fans were so excited to see us play right in-front of them. The atmosphere was amazing and we won 3-0 with cracking goals from Joe, Elliot and Ellis. The fans kept us in it with flags waving everywhere and Sam Churchill especially.
Our next game was against Norwich and if won that game we will be able to progress to the semi-finals so it was a big game for us.
The game kicks off and Everton are off on a fiery start with Billy Jones slicing a great shot into the back of the net. Norwich bring it to the centre and try to attack at are defence but they just couldn’t get threw them so Max Wormald passes the ball to Joe Cunningham and he looks up and finds Billy Jones in anchors of space so he passes the ball to him and Billy taps it home for the blues. Not much for Everton keeper (Owen Griffith) accept for one astonishing save from him with Norwich’s number 10 with him shooting in the top corner. Everton get a corner with Charlie Ash taking it Billy wanting a hat-trick ran in and headed the ball in the back of the net. A last minute goal occurred with star striker Ellis Hampson does a top corner shot. Everton win 4-0 so we progressed to the semi-final against Swansea City. We went up to the crowd and thanked them as they were the best fans in the world.
Swansea goes into the semi’s with 10 points out of a possible 12 but Everton go into the game with 12 out of 12 by winning all of games.
We kicked off and we took an early lead with a bottom corner finish by Elliot Hunter! Swansea took the ball to the middle with their heads held high ready to go. Swansea hoof the ball up from kick off but its just wide of the post. Childwalls captain Joe Cunningham is fouled just before the halfway line. Joe stepped up and too it. GOALAZO!! What a strike.
Now the score is 2-1 to Everton all the fans cheered and waved their big flags. Soon after Swansea scored, the keeper parried it and it rolled in. 2-2. Swansea on the counter with lots of white shirts up top and it’s an easy tap in for Swansea. 3-2. Everton lose the ball off kick off and its picked up by a Swansea player who strikes it with the laces of his boot and it goes back of the net. 4-2. The full time whistle is blown and that’s Everton out. Unlucky boys. We went over and clapped our amazing supporters. Then we went into the stands got our boots off and put on our trackies. Next went to see Leighton Baines and Jonjo Jones and we got our pictures taken. The players for the final came out onto the pitch. They shook hands and the game was played. Crystal Palace off to a fiery start but they couldn’t hang in there and Swansea won 1-0.
What an amazing experience to play at Goodison Park representing Everton. Its an incredible achievement for the school and for the players and the team would like to thank Mr Hawthorne for being so inspiring and very inspirational. Well played boys.
