Truro School v Saints South West

It was a pleasure to welcome five Saints South West teams to play against our School teams this weekend, in the first block fixture between the two sides. Furthermore, the games were refereed by our FA accredited Sixth Form students, who recently completed their FA Referee Course through the School’s Sixth Form Football Programme.

Mr Sanderson, Director of Sport at Truro School, said, “We are really pleased to show our partnership with Saints South West is progressing and working well, with a morning of football for over 100 young people to enjoy, supported by parents and coaches. A special thank you to all the staff who coached teams and to the grounds staff for preparing the pitches. The catering team once again provided excellent service and care and made the whole event a perfect start to the weekend.”

Mr Hooper, Head of Football, commented, “It was fantastic to be able to host a block fixture on a Saturday. All the games were closely contested and played in a wonderful spirit. The highlight for me was to see nine Sixth Form students officiate their first-ever football fixture after completing their FA Referee Course through the football programme.”

Thank you to all the pupils, coaches, parents and staff from both Truro School and Saints South West for your support
