Football's Coming Home. Sort of.

5th July 2018
The ESJ football teams suffered two defeats recently, despite working very hard in extremely hot conditions. The mixed Y5/6 team went down 4-1 in their final league match of the season, away at Sutton. The scoreline flattered Sutton a little bit as Ely played well throughout, but two quick goals towards the end put a gloss on the result.
In the first girls' team game of the season, we came up against an extremely strong Haddenham team. Despite this being the first match for some of the ESJ girls, they played brilliantly. For a long period of the second half it was 1-1, and although Haddenham scored twice in quick succession, a marvellous goal by Aiyana led to a tight finish and a commendable 3-2 scoreline. The girls will take on Wilburton next week.
