Infinity Cup Champions!

On Saturday 12th November the St Nicholas school football team took part in an Infinity Academies Trust-wide football tournament where 6 teams took part. Each team played each other before the 1st and 2nd place team played the final. 


Our team won 4 and only lost 1 game, with a last minute penalty scored against St Nicholas. The players showed all of our school values (Love, Hope, Unity, Curiosity and Integrity) not just on the pitch but also off the pitch as well and towards all of the other participants too.


The team was supported by a great turn out of parents and staff who all cheered on the team. After finishing second in the league St Nicholas was up against a very strong and unbeaten Pinchbeck school.


St Nicholas scored early on, while defending strongly for the majority of the game, we conceded a last minute goal. This meant there was extra time to play!


After extra time and the score still being 1-1 it was time for the dreaded penalty shootout!


After the 5 penalties were taken the game was still tied at 3-3 on penalties. It was time for sudden death shootout!! St Nicholas scored their first penalty and Pinchbeck missed theirs which meant St Nicholas Primary Academy, for the first time, were winners of the Infinity Cup!


Everyone throughout the tournament shone their lights and made the school, parents and staff very proud!
