JANUARY 2019 MATCH REPORT
This month we have had some great sporting successes and some interesting experiences!
Firstly, we competed in a 6-a-side boys' football tournament at Fulham FC's training ground in Motspur Park. Our boys did very well to finish 3rd and therefore progress to the next round on Friday 8th. A week later, we also competed in the girls' 6-a side competition and finished 3rd in that one too, so the girls' next round is on Friday 15th. Both were very tough and the next round will be even harder so the best of luck to both teams.
Our A team then played in the Danone Nations County Cup at the Meadowbank football ground in Dorking, which followed on from our victory at the district tournament back in November. We played well although struggled somewhat with the small pitches and weren't quite able to play to the best of our strengths, so didn't progress from there.
Finally last Thursday we travelled to St. Martin's for an A team football match; the boys were back on a proper sized pitch and worked their magic once again! Every single member of our team played their socks off and were rewarded by a 5 - 0 win! Our next match is on Thursday 14th at home to Southfield Park for both the A and B team. All supporters are very welcome!
MATCH REPORT: Girls' 7-a-side football tournament - Monday 12th November 2018
On Monday we competed in the District 7-a-side girls' football tournament at Priest Hill against 11 other teams. Despite the teeming rain, our girls battled valiantly all the way through to the finals versus Danetree. By the final whistle it was still 0-0 so we were faced with a penalty shoot-out. Unfortunately we were beaten but still very proud to be runners up. Well done girls for your positivity and great teamwork and thanks to the parents for supporting us to the end, given the conditions!
MATCH REPORT: C-Team football match v Stamford Green - Tuesday 13th November 2018
On Tuesday, our C-Team travelled to Stamford Green to take on their B-Team for a friendly. It was a great match to referee and watch as all the players had a great sporting attitude. Stamford Green quickly took the lead but Wallace Fields responded by scoring 8 goals for a very comfortable victory! Well played everyone, you were brilliant!
MATCH REPORT: District Boys' 7-a-side Football Tournament - Monday 5th November 2018
On Monday 5th November 2018 we took two teams of boys to this tournament at Priest Hill. It was going to be a busy afternoon with 15 teams competing and thankfully the weather was fine. The boys were all very excited and we had a lovely number of parents and grandparents supporting us. Both teams started with a win, which boosted their confidence, and both managed to keep a clean sheet throughout the group stage. This allowed our two teams to progress through to the play-offs...... the A team faced Cuddington Croft and the Bs, St. Clement's. Both had tough games but the B team managed to tuck two goals in to secure their place in the quarter finals. They then took on Danetree and it was end-to-end stuff. Either team looked capable of taking the lead but it eventually finished as a goal-less draw so t was penalty time! Unfortunately, the B team had two of their shots saved which ended their adventure, but they were very gracious in defeat and heartily congratulated Danetree afterwards.
The A team saw off Cuddington with a 2-0 defeat and went on to play St. Joseph's in the semi-finals. That game ended in a draw so had to go directly to a penalty shoot-out also, which they took in their stride and calmly won to progress to the finals against Southfield Park. It was getting dark and cold (plus it was Parent's Evening) but nobody wanted to miss a moment of the final where shots were being fired left, right and centre but nothing got past the two amazing goalies. Then the final whistle blew and it was still 0-0, so more penalties!! Tension was high amongst the supporters, not to mention the players, as each brave young man stepped up to the spot. Goals were being scored and saved on an equal basis and we were running out of players to take the shots. It was down to sudden death ……. when suddenly we scored to seal the deal and the victory was ours! Congratulations to all our players who were excellent ambassadors for the school and kept all our spectators fully entertained! The A Team will now progress to the county level tournament, representing Epsom & Ewell borough.
