Whilst we were all off enjoying the glorious sunshine of the Bank Holiday yesterday, May 7, fifteen of our Year 8 football players took part in the Jermaine Defoe Foundation tournament in Romford.
We had two teams competing St Bon’s 1 and St Bon’s 2 and the charity matches raised £225 for homeless people and vulnerable children.
For St Bon’s 1 Nana Akyaew and Tashawn Adams were the goal scorers and Stefan Aiwone made some excellent saves in goal.
St Bon’s 2 were undefeated all day which meant that Mekhi Charles-Armstrong got to lift the huge JDF trophy and bring it home to Boleyn Road and our glittering display cabinet in Reception.
Zinnell Royes was in top goal scoring form and Joel Mputu won ‘The Player of the Tournament’ accolade and received a personal award and trophy from Jermaine himself.
After the event, PE teacher, Mr Firth presented former Bonaventurian Jermaine with a gold coloured 140th anniversary commemorative tie.
What a fantastic result!
Thanks to Mr Firth for giving up bis Bank Holiday for his students too.
