Success at the double for CJCA football teams

Year 9 and Year 10 football teams from Cockburn John Charles Academy (CJCA) have been crowned the Leeds South and Central League Champions.

The boys embodied the Academy’s values and expectations, being prepared and showing resilience in order to attain the titles. Their coach, Mr Burnell states,

“The passion and determination that the lads have shown is unrivaled. They are independent, setting up drills to develop their technique and respectful, supporting each other to improve as a team.”

Head of School Siobhan Roberts said,

“The boys are a credit to the academy. They are role models with an incredible attitude and are proud to represent CJCA.”

Both teams will now compete in the Champions of Leeds Play-Offs against the winners and runners-up of the North, East, and West Leeds leagues. Good luck!
