Dulwich College hosts annual U10 Football Tournament

On 2 October, Dulwich College played host to 25 schools, it’s largest U10 Football tournament to-date. A fitting event to coincide with the 400-year anniversary, played in front of the impressive Barry Buildings.

There is little doubt that Edward Alleyn would have been extremely proud of the great performing abilities and enthusiasm of the 300 pupils from local schools, all playing with great spirit and sportsmanship.

Four groups of seven saw 84 matches at this stage of the competition and not only was the spirit fantastic but so was the standard. The pitches were in great condition and enabled schools to play a quick passing game and, the many spectators were given a real footballing treat.

Dulwich started the final well and took a two-goal lead and had it not been for the heroics of the Thomas’ Battersea goalkeeper, the match could have been over by half-time. The second half saw a change in momentum and two quick goals from Thomas’ had the game level. The first time Dulwich have won the tournament in recent years.
