On Monday, the Boreham Wood FC Community Trust played host to the Annual Primary Schools Tournament for a sixth straight year at Meadow Park and once again it was a huge success.
The yearly competition saw seven schools from the local Borehamwood area enter with 14 teams taking part in the event panning across three different groups.

Kenilworth, Fairfield, Woodlands and Shenley competed in the Year 4/5 Boys category. We were treated to a five-goal thriller in the final as Fairfield narrowly edged out Kenilworth in a pulsating encounter 3-2.

Year 5/6 Girls
Saffron Green, Fairfield, Kenilworth, Shenley and Woodlands went toe-to-toe in the Year 5/6 Girls group which arguably left the most dramatic finale till last. Saffron Green and Fairfield couldn’t be separated in normal time forcing a penalty shoot-out. In the dreaded lottery, it was Saffron Green who kept their nerve on the day claiming the title.

As always, the community were out in force to show their support for the players and we love nothing more than to bring people together with football.
We would like to say a big thank you to club partners MOD Pizza for providing all of the food for the participants and their coaches at no extra charge, something that went down very well.
On the successful tournament, Community Manager Connor Smith said: “Today was a fantastic day, we had great weather, a great atmosphere and a great competition. It was very important for me that my first event since being appointed the new Community Manager was a success and I think I achieved that. I now want to focus on enhancing / growing what is already a very vibrant community department and introducing new projects / activities in the near future.”
Congratulations to all the winners and also everyone who took part in the event, all of the matches were played in tremendous spirit which made for some thoroughly enjoyable football.
