Haverstock’s Year 9 footballers who took part in the Islington & Camden Schools FA Six-a-Side Cup
AFTER nearly 600 days without competitive football, Haverstock’s Year 9 boys’ team have finally made their long-awaited return to action, writes Steve Barnett.
The squad from the secondary school in Chalk Farm took part in the Islington and Camden Schools FA Six-a-Side Championship on Wednesday at the artificial pitches in Market Road.
Haverstock lost to St Aloysius 2-1, beat Highbury Grove 4-0 and drew 1-1 with Central Foundation in their three group games – meaning they just miss out on the grand finals next month.
Despite that, Haverstock’s head of PE, Zaki Chamnaoui, was just happy to be back.
He said: “The team played with incredible determination and teamwork and should be extremely proud of themselves.
“A special shout-out goes to Teddy Morahan, the only Year 8 player in the team, who contributed five magnificent goals.”
