It was a big night on Tuesday 20th June for the boy’s football (A) team as they took part in the final of the prestigious Catholic schools tournament, the Bishops Cup, hosted at St. Aloysius Primary School. It was the 60th year of the competition and reaching the final was a huge achievement for the A team, being the only St Mary Magdalen’s team to do so in many years. 56 teams entered the tournament, but only 4 made it to the final: ourselves, St Mary’s (Whickham), St Matthew’s (Jarrow) and St Aloysius (Hebburn).
It was a fantastic final and our very own talented youngsters came out victorious, winning the coveted Bishop’s Cup trophy! It was lovely to see the trophy being presented to the team by our previous head teacher, Mr Rhodes, who was clearly delighted with the outcome. Well done to Mr Herring and the boys and a big thank you to all parents, relatives and friends who came to support the team. We are all feeling very proud of your achievements!
