Young Redbridge footballers and netball players battle for tournament title

Young Redbridge footballers and netball players competed to be the champions of a football and netball tournament on Saturday.

The under 11s football festival and netball tournament was hosted by Chigwell School, in High Road, Chigwell.

Bancroft’s School, in Woodfood Green, took the netball crown out of 18 teams but no overall winner triumphed in the 24 team football tournament.

A Chigwell School spokesman said: “All matches were competitive and there was an impressive high standard of play.”

The Independent Schools Football Association helped run the annual event, which drew teams from schools including Forest School, Fairlop Primary School and Woodford Green Preparatory School.
