In the summer holidays DACA was fortunate to have 6 tickets donated by their sponsor Sir Rod Aldridge to watch Team GB in the Olympics football at Wembley Stadium. The fixtures were Senegal v Uruguay and then Team GB v United Arab Emirates. Mr Pearson from the PE department who was involved in the Academy football trials, took five of our students who had been successfully chosen to play for the Football Academy Team. The boys chosen by lottery were Adam Caunce, Luke McKenna, Jordon Yates, Pedro Monteiro and Liam Grimshaw. The boys were treated to two excellent games with the highlight being Team GB winning 3-2.
The trip was a great experience for the boys who all got on really well and were a great credit to themselves and DACA.
