Posted on: May 16th 2019School News


Many congratulations to Junior School pupil Fletcher Jackson, Year 5, who helped his team - Salford City FC - to become National Champions.

For the last six months, Fletcher has played in the Junior Premier League (JPL) North West League for Salford, where the team have played more than 30 league games, losing just once all season. 

The team were then crowned champions of the region and qualified for the Northern region playoffs, which took place in Walsall against the champions of Yorkshire and champions of the Midlands, which the team won, and in doing so becoming the champions of the North of England. 

On Saturday 11th May, Fletcher and his teammates competed in the National final at St George's Park National Football Centre, headquarters of the England national football team, where the champions of the North competed against the champions of the South.

And Fletcher and his teammates ended up being crowned national champions after a 2-1 win in the final. Well done, Fletcher!
