Phuket BISP 7s Football Tournament
Over four days in late November MCM pupils competed in the Phuket BISP 7s Football Tournament. The U13, U15 and U18 boys and girls teams flew to Thailand on Thursday, ready for the start of the competition early on Friday morning.
Pupils’ enthusiasm and anticipation for the tournament were high and they were excited to play against teams from across the region. The boys’ group consisted of 16 schools and our teams played the eventual first, third and plate finalists, so they were up against tough competition. The girls had the same high standard of play, but both of our MCM girls teams reached the Plate semi-finals after some excellent play.
The U15 boys played straight after a series of strong performances beforehand and did not disappoint. They lost in the semi-final of the Cup competition to eventual winners BISP and went on to win the third /fourth playoff. The U15 girls were also very competitive and had a succession of close matches that swung back and forth. Spectators and our MCM coaches were exceedingly impressed with the attitude the girls and boys showed, highlighting their competitiveness and determination.
Thank you to all coaches and pupils who made this such a memorable weekend.
