The girl and boy choristers of St. Martin’s Ampleforth attended the Choir School Association Northern Division Annual Football and Rounders Tournament at The Minster School in York. Teams taking part in the tournaments were from York, Newcastle, Liverpool, Durham, Lincoln, Peterborough and Wolverhampton.
The St. Martin’s Ampleforth girls reached the final of the Rounders Tournament and played against The Minster School. It was a very exciting and close match with some excellent catches and fielding from our girls. Sadly one of our team was stumped out in the last few seconds and we lost by half a rounder.
The boys also reached the final of the football tournament with a thrilling match against St. Edwards. Christopher Tang scored two goals in quick succession resulting in St. Martin’s Ampleforth winning the football tournament.
After a delicious lunch and a quick stop at the ice-cream shop, the choirs robed and headed into the Minster to rehearse for Evensong. The eight choirs singing together raised the roof and Evensong was outstanding.
