Girls football match

Following our brilliant win last term we faced Palmer again this evening for our eagerly anticipated rematch.

We saw super passes, tackles and saves from the girls but went 1-0 down in the first 3rd. In the second Edarabasi managed to equalise with a brilliant goal but in the final 3rd our team were not able to stop an incredible shot on target meaning we lost 2-1.

The team were SO enthusiastic and supportive of one another and we think we now need another rematch to win back the title!!

At the end of the game the teams all shook hands and 3 cheers shouted . Palmer then nominated who they felt was our star player of the match- Charlotte and we then chose one of their players in return.

Well done girls! Great game.

WEC Football Tournament

On Friday we took 2 teams to The Madejski Training Dome for a schools football tournament. The groups did amazingly well; winning some, drawing others and losing 2 within their leagues.

The teams loved wearing their kit and showed fantastic team work throughout the afternoon. Well done!

Year 3/4 football match with The Palmer Academy

This evening we had our first football match alongside The Palmer Academy. Despite the VERY cold weather and being 3-0 down in the first half, the team did amazingly. They persevered, continuing to work hard as a team and came back to draw 3-3. Unfortunately The Palmer Academy scored within the final few minutes, leaving us with a final result of 4-3. Coach Tia was delighted with their efforts, as was I and we can’t wait to organise more games for the group!

We had lots of fun last week at the Indoor Athletics event at Kendrick School.

The children demonstrated superb levels of sportsmanship; both in their skills during events such as high jump, speed bounce and relays but also in their loyalty to one another, cheering each other on  and being supportive team mates the whole day.

Well done! I am looking forward to more days like this!
