Half time shoot-out result from Southend...
Brompton Westbrook Primary School and Skinner Street Primary School took place in the second game of this year’s Half-time Shoot-out during Tuesday night’s game against Southend United Football Club.
The players had 7 seconds to score from the edge of the D and could chose to dribble and shoot or simply fire one at goal. The keepers were allowed to move off their line as soon as the whistle sounded and put the striker under pressure meaning that they both had to think and act fast.
At the halfway stage of a tightly gripped Tuesday night game the brave students of Brompton Westbrook Primary School and Skinner Street Primary Schools stepped out onto the pitch and made their way to the Rainham End ready to entertain the GFC faithful. After all players had warmed up with the mascots; Tommy T and The Plumb-Bay Duck, from the Tuesday night chill they were ready.
Both Goalkeepers made their way to the goal, while the strikers lined up ready. In a shoot-out full of quick feet, powerful shots and cat-like reactions Brompton took the momentum into the next round by scoring all five goals.
As usual we would like to thank both schools for taking part in the competition and good luck to Bropmton Westbrook Primary School for the next round.
