Sports Day 2024: An Afternoon Of Sporting Fun

01 Jul 2024 | Category: News

On the day England relied on late heroics from a Birmingham-born player to get them to the last eight of the European Championships, the real sporting activity took place earlier in the day at Streetly Cricket Club on the outskirts of the second city.

That was the venue for the 2024 Lisieux Trust Sports Day and over 100 Residents, Tenants and staff took part in an afternoon of incredible sport and fun.

Starting with a game of rounders, there was a raffle with some amazing prizes – and we thank everyone for their kind donations – and plenty of people went home happy.

There was magnificent food from Ted’s Potatoes of Sutton Coldfield and Ice Cream, courtesy of one of our residents’ mothers, before the day’s main event.

A penalty shoot-out which, apart from a couple who smashed them over the top of the post, Gareth Southgate would do well to watch given England’s record in such things, and Conor, the Trust’s premier goalie, was put to work (and excelled), before the crowning glory of the afternoon.

There was a football match that was about a million times better than the one at 5pm, with attacking football all over the place, which saw 11 goals shared before the winning strike at 6-5 came just before the end of the event was about to be called.

The action didn’t even stop there, though, and the hula-hooping was just getting started, although here, there were some mixed results.

Thanks to everyone at Streetly Cricket Club for their incredible hospitality and to everyone who attended for making it a really special afternoon.

And don’t worry – we’ll do it all again next year!

And look out for a lot more pictures later this week.
