Burlington Junior School football team.

Burlington Junior School took part in the first sports competition of the year, the year 5/6 football tournament. They were entered into a pool with all the larger schools in the area - Martongate, Bay, Hilderthorpe, Quay and Our Lady and St Peter’s.

With matches only lasting eight minutes and players not being able to go into the goal area, it was hard for the team at first but they soon adapted and played good football.

Two draws and three wins meant they won their pool, while New Pasture Lane won the pool in the smaller school category.
