Every year we have a football squad that trains in the Autumn, Winter and Spring term. This year we will have a football team consisting mainly of Year 6 plus some Year 5. Trials happened in the Autumn term and the teams were selected. Those selected will be invited to train each Thursday from 3.30-4.30pm. They must remember to bring a change of clothes (not school PE kits please) including football boots (no metal studs), shin pads, long socks and their water bottle. They will get changed in Year 6 and will be expected to change back into their school uniform before leaving. If this is an issue for you, please speak to Mr Lee.
The squad trains until Easter and does not run in the Summer term. If the weather is very bad, training may have to be cancelled so please be prepared for late notice. If your child cannot attend a session for any reason, I would be grateful if you notify myself or the office in advance. Please note that during the last half term of the Winter term and first half term of the Spring term, children will not be released to walk home unaccompanied due to the limited daylight, as per the school policy.
Along with the privilege of being selected to represent the school comes the responsibility of leading by example. Therefore, any child who repeatedly misbehaves at school, either on or off the pitch, will be swapped with a player from the C team without hesitation.
Parents are kept informed via Spond by Mr Sellars, the football team co-ordinator. Please contact Mr Sellars CSellars@wallacefields-jun.surrey.sch.uk to join our team Spond group so you can be alerted to any last minute cancellations or specific match details.
Don’t forget a water bottle.
Teams selected for 2023/2024
Mr Sellars was very impressed with the turn out for football team trials and the competition was tough. He will keep a note of those who missed out and will let them know if a Development team is possible in the future and year 5 children will get a chance to try out again in year 6.
In the meantime only team A, B & the girls team can attend squad training and parents have been contacted with a link to sign up to Spond for team communications.
Girls Only Squad
We begin the school year each September with a football tournament held at Epsom College where we play many preparatory schools from the local area and South London. Then in the Spring we take part in inter-school football fixtures against the local Epsom and Ewell schools.
Epsom College Football Tournament 20th September 2023
A keen year six squad attended the Epsom College Football Tournament on Wednesday alongside 20 other schools. WFJS got off to a great start showing great team cohesion. An amazingly timed accurate strike from James 'Megafoot' put WFJS ahead early on. Many great goals followed. WFJS showed a lot of potential in the group stages and excitement rose as the squad made it through to play in the Final. WFJS gave it everything they had in the last game of the tournament however luck did not fall their way resulting in an emotional loss in the Final. Thank you to all the supporters, Thankyou to Mr Findlay getting the best out of the team and thank you to the squad for giving it your best.
Match Report - Cuddington Croft Wednesday 4th October 2023
Cuddington Croft football team came to WFJS for our A teams first match on Wednesday 4th October 2023. It proved to be a fantastic game! WFJS set up many shots on goal which failed to find the back of net. It was Cuddington croft who went ahead in the first fifteen minutes. WFJS continued to play un-phased knowing it was just a matter of time until the goals started to flow.
Second half was nailbiting. A wonderful touch from Theo saw the ball hang in the air and drop into the top right corner putting WFJS ahead 2-3. With Fraser solid in defence more goals followed. Final result Cuddington croft -3, WFJS -5.
Thank you to all the players for such an entertaining performance and everyone who came out to support.
