‘Where everyone is able to achieve their best’

County title retained!

The boys 5-a-side football team become the first team to retain the Reprotec Nottinghamshire 5-a-side shield after winning the annual competition held at Nottingham Trent University on Wednesday night.

There were 5 teams at the event, representing Nottingham City, Worksop, Gedling, Mansfield and Newark. Each team taking part had previously won their district's entry event.

The first match was the hardest for Barnby, eventually beating St John's from Worksop 8-6. This was a sweet victory as St John's had pipped us to the County outdoor crown in November, despite us beating them 1-0 on the day. The confidence gained from this tough match carried the team forward; in the next three games Barnby scored 26 goals to their opponent's 2.

The boys have been training specifically for indoor 5-a-side over the past 6 weeks and this application really paid off on the night; anyone who was lucky enough to be there witnessed some exceptional football.

It is an achievement just to qualify for this event - the boys had to win the autumn Flowserve tournament in order to secure their place. With this in mind their achievement of not only retaining the title, but also winning for the 4th time in 6 years is truly outstanding.

Well done boys - you should remember this for a long time.
