FRIDAY/SATURDAY 6th & 7th November
U11’s BIS Phuket Soccer 7’s @British International School Phuket, Thailand
Our Soccer 7’s players arrived home a little tied from travelling all night, a little browner from the lovely Phuket weather and full of tournament stories ready to share with their families, like the amazing saves they made in defence and goal, the superb goals scored and the excellent midfield play. The players all improved their own abilities as well as team play and reading the game. Our weekend had some match lows with the boys battling through their games but they were disheartened with some big losses; their tournament high was their phenomenal play. The girls were pleased to get a 0-0 draw and didn’t concede more than 3 goals in their games, and then in their last game they finished with a 3-2 win. Both teams’ last games were for sure the most exciting game of the tournament as the heavens opened and we all got soaked. Unfortunately due the rain the tournament got rained off at the early stages of day 2, so it was a big disappointed to have the tournament cancelled. The children loved their pool and beach time on their rest periods over the weekend; they made new friends within their own team and other schools. All in all an enjoyable experience for all involved.

My swimmer of the day has to go to Jackie Chen he truly showed off his swimming ability during this swim meet, specifically in the boys 11 & O Medley relay, where he swam a fantastic 50m Butterfly to put BSB in 1st place position for Jack Waterland to bring home the victory. Great job boys: Fabian Quink, Joe Turner, Jackie Chen, Jack Waterland.
