Cathedral Choristers Win Choir Schools Association Football Tournament
On Wednesday 4 March, our boy and girl choristers attended the annual Choir Schools Association Sports and Evensong Day, this year generously hosted by Hereford Cathedral.
In the Netball Tournament, our girl choristers battled valiantly to come third, while in the hotly contested Football Tournament, our boy choristers were crowned overall winners, seeing off competition from the Cathedrals of Bristol, Exeter, Gloucester, Hereford, Llandaff, Truro, Wells, Winchester and Tewkesbury Abbey.
The glorious sunshine held out all day, and a busy afternoon of sport culminated in a joint Evensong in the magnificent setting of the cathedral, with well over 150 cathedral choristers taking part. The boys and girls deserve to be commended for their superb behaviour and team spirit throughout the day, both on the sports field and at Evensong. The service ended with a presentation of trophies to the winners of the netball and football. Needless to say, the boys were very proud to return the trophy to Cardiff (having last won it in 2000 and 2005).
Many thanks to Mrs Wood (Head of P.E.) for leading the girls in the netball and to the chorister parents and choir support staff who joined us on this most enjoyable trip.
Mr J. Neville
