Oakwood School’s colts A team got the football season off to a flying start with a stunning victory in the Lancing College under-11 six-a-side tournament.

Twenty-four teams took part, representing schools from across the south-east, and competition was strong.

Oakwood’s head of games, Matt Vella, was very proud of the Oakwood boys and said: “Our team showed determination, teamwork and flair, and they performed brilliantly against teams from schools two or three times bigger than Oakwood. I have very high hopes for the rest of the football season!”
