Leeds West Academy

Football Tournament Success

This term, football has been a hit within Leeds West Academy with all year groups performing admirably despite the poor weather conditions that have greeted us at times.

Students have recorded impressive victories over the other local schools within our cluster, however a special mention must go to the Year 9 and Year 10 football teams who both won the West Leeds Six-a-Side competitions.

The Year 9 team including Brooklyn Flynn, Dean Duffy, Joel Creaser, Malcolm DeOliveria, Thierry Luzamuka, Noel O'Hanlon, Eben Ezel and Jay Ajolinaj brushed every team aside until the final, where a nervy penalty shootout saw Leeds West Academy win the title.

The year 10 team followed suit the next week and breezed through the competition playing some fantastic football throughout. Those that represented included Mark Webster, Brad Houseman, Cameron Whiteley, Rowan Matthews, Chris Barr, Kyle Harvey, Kieron Tweed, Cameron Richards, Lucas Pearson and Tom Pollard.

The first week back after half-term is another important fixture in the football diary, with our Year 9 team facing off against Brighouse in the quarter final of the Leeds cup.
