Team Sports Day – Wednesday 2nd October 2019
Our annual team sports day took place today, where each year group took turns to carousel around activities: archery, golf, netball shooting, bowling, tennis ball balancing and penalty kicking. Points were awarded for scoring goals, hitting wickets binning balls and extra points were awarded for teamwork and cooperation.
Thursday 3rd October 2019 (Away) - Edge Hill 10 v 0 Windsor Park Middle School - Staffordshire Schools’ Under 11 Cup 1st Round.
The first game of the season saw the team compete in the Staffs Under 11s cup away to Windsor Park Middle School. The boys were not used to playing on such a large pitch but it definitely suited our play. Straight from the off, after some great battling in midfield from Charlie F, Joe ran down the line and hit a left footed cross which lobbed the goalie to put the team 1-0 in the first few minutes. Soon after, it was 2-0 after the ball was knocked out to the left again but to Max T this time who cut inside and hit a shot from the edge of the area before hitting the post and going in. The 3rd goal was an incredible piece of football which started at the back from Charlie P and Zack before Charlie F spread it to Max T who found Joe to grab his second of the game. Soon after, it was 4-0 when Zack fired a shot into the top corner from distance. Max B scored the 5th on his debut in the competition finishing off a slick passingly move from the team.
The 6th goal was a fantastic left-footed effort from Olly F who stepped up at last minute to the side as Ollie G could not make it. Despite being in Y4, Olly F was full of confidence and always wanted the ball. A quick free kick from Charlie P saw Olly fire home from a tight angle to the team’s delight! The referee allowed play to continue after a foul on Zack which led to him smashing home another long range shot. At 7-0, the boys did not take their foot off the gas and continued to press for more. It was soon 8-0 when Tyrun made a darting run into the box to get on the end of a ball from Zack and nod the ball in. Max T slotted home a penalty for 9 with Joe scoring the final goal and his 3rd of the game.
Well done to all involved.
Boccia Competition - Thursday 10th Oct @Robert Sutton
Edge Hill’s three teams got off to an amazing start in the group games, winning two of their first fixtures easily. Each team of three was separated on the bench by their three opponents, but that didn’t stop our children from leaning over, swapping tips and tactics and always communicating!
We had some really exciting games… At one point Harrison W. smashed the opponents’ balls out of the way, leaving four of our balls nearest the jack and notching up our point score.
After four matches each, it was our A team who progressed to the semi-final against Windsor Park. Sadly we lost that but it was a very close call and quite difficult to figure out how the amalgamated points edged us out.
Competing in the 3rd place play-off, Harrison W., Harry S., Sophie I. and Zack W. did us proud and defeated Windsor Park’s second team to win bronze for Edge Hill! Great fun and terrific team spirit all round!
