STUDENTS GAIN TICKETS TO COVENTRY CITY FOOTBALL GAME AGAINST BURTON
On Friday 15th March, three year 8 students gained tickets to the Coventry City football game against Burton. They were given the tickets as an achievement for attending the girls football sessions ran by Chloe from Sky blues in the Community on a Tuesday evening in school. The Sky Blues played well but Burton players were better with the score of 2:1 (to Burton).
This is how it all started…
As we arrived at the football stadium, we got our tickets from Chloe (our Football Coach). Then we took a tour around the pitch and saw all the players of Sky Blue and Burton train on the football pitch and it looked amazing! After we had watched the players fluently pass the balls around and shoot in the goal, we took pictures of the group and another of just us 3. We then took our seats and watched our team steer away from victory.
Charlotte’s Point of View
“I mainly enjoined the match except from when we lost. My favourite part of the match was when we took all of the pictures and walked around the pitch. I really enjoyed these opportunities to go and watch real live football and have these lessons with Chloe (football coach).”
Tia’s Point of View
“I really enjoyed this chance to go watch real live football. My favourite part of the match was when Sky Blues scored a goal and my least favourite part was when Burton scored 2 Goals. I also really enjoyed the part where we took pictures on the pitch and got to watch the players warm up. I would really love to have the opportunity again to go to a live football game.”
Maddison’s Point of View
“When we arrived at the Ricoh arena we saw all the players from Burton and Coventry warming up on the pitch, we also had our photo taken on the corner of the pitch. I lost my voice from shouting so much during the game because I wanted the Sky Blues to win. The game finished 2-1 to Burton and as long as Sky Blues had fun and tried their best that’s all that Sky Blues fans could ask for.”
