Football in the Shadow of Giants


On Friday 6 th October a group of our amazing Year Seven students were given the opportunity to take part in a football tournament with a difference.

The matches were played under the imposing figure of a 30 foot sandal belonging to one of the Giants in the upcoming Liverpool Celebrations!

The games were played in a great spirit. Alsop students gave their all and represented the school with exemplary behaviour and attitude.

Year 7 student, Libby-Lea Towes, comments;

"It was weird playing football in front of a massive shoe. As I was playing, I kept looking at it and thinking 'that shoe is HUGE'!"

Mr Leatherbarrow comments;

“This was a great opportunity for young people do something which they will not forget during their lifetime. They were great ambassadors for Alsop. They were inspired to find out more about the visit of the Giants and they all hope to see them parading around the city this weekend.”
