Hosted by St. Philip's this year, the Key Stage 4 tournament was contested by 4 schools, The Abbey, The Park, Dove House and St Philip's. The tournament was in a league format with everyone playing each other once and then play-off games. One of the three Abbey teams, Abbey Athletic beat a team from The Park 4-0 in the final - the first time The Abbey have won the CWSNF KS4 football tournament. A great achievement for all. 

The following week it was KS3’s turn to participate in the annual tournament which takes place at The Abbey. Again, we had 3 teams entered. 

In a great day which showed some outstanding football, great sportsmanship and respect for each other, as well as a very competitive tournament, 7 teams battled it out for the Children with Special Needs Foundation's Ian Wooldridge Memorial FA cup replica. Every team played each other in 6 minute, 6-a-side games. The top 4 teams then went through to a semi-final, and the winners played each other in a final.

Following a goalless draw in the final against St. Philip's, Abbey Athletic won the penalty shootout to regain the cup.
