Penalty Shoot-Out

25th January 2015

On Saturday 24th January, Miss Williams organised for pupils in Years 5 and 6 to take part in a penalty shoot-out during half-time at Vicarage Road (home to Watford Football Club). Watford were playing Blackpool and were victorious in a high-scoring game, winning 7 - 2. However, more importantly, in front of a crowd of over 17 000 people, the children of Great Gaddesden School won their penalty shoot-out!

Krysta, Oscar, Dylan, Harry, Max and Bradley took to the pitch at half-time and held their nerve when striking at a full-size football goal!  Oscar was a super goal-keeper and our team ended up winning the penalty shoot-out against Leverstock Green School, 3 - 1, taking us through to the next round.  Well done to all involved and huge thanks to Miss Williams for organising.
