What an amazing trip! Pupils joined a record 25,000 crowd to watch the last game of the season as Birmingham under Harry Redknapp managed to stay in the championship at Blackburn Rovers’ expense.
City were poor in the first half but improved in the second half. They hammered away at the blue’s goal but to no avail. The Birmingham fans were delirious with joy when the final whistle went and to be fair, after our terrible mid-season form, City fans were also happy to be safe from relegation.
Thanks to Avonline for letting us use their car park again and thanks to Mr Burgess and Miss Price for giving up their Sunday.
Finally, we got an unexpected “result”: the report of the match on the BBC website has a photo of the goal and if you look closely at the bottom left hand corner of the photo you can see three Westhaven pupils (Jack, Karol & Simon), Miss Price and half of Mr Barlow! Fame at last!
