Udoit National Schools Finals @ Fenton Manor, Stoke - 26th June 2019
A huge Well Done to our two dance groups who competed in the finals today! Dancing Diamonds, who won the Primary All Style qualifier a few months ago, sadly did not finish in one of the top spots, but deserve nothing but praise for their hard work preparing for this competition. The Y5 girls choreographed their routine themselves and gave up their lunchtimes to practise for this final. Big, Big Kudos to Romily, Mia, Nina, Georgina and Aneira!!
And huge Congratulations go to Illumination, mostly from Y4, who won 3rd place in the Primary Street category at today's finals! The girls were chuffed to bits with their trophy! Well done for doing so well to: Jada, Katie, Hollie, Emmy, Remy, Sienna, Meadow and Brooke!

RUNNERS-UP Y3/4 Kwik Cricket Tournament @ Burton CC - 6th June 2019
Nine cricketers from Y3 and Y4 took part in today's competition. Drawn in a group with two other school cricket teams, the Edge Hill team did brilliantly to win their group and the semi-final to reach the final!
Edge Hill v Holy Trinity: The team began its group matches by playing Holy Trinity and did brilliantly to win by over 70 runs!
Edge Hill v Christ Church: Christ Church always field strong sides in cricket competitions and have been crowned county champions in previous years. As usual, they were a good batting side but our own batters proved to be very resilient by not conceding a single wicket during the game! Aided by the wickets that our bowlers took, Edge Hill finished 18 runs in front at the end of the match!
Semi-final - Edge Hill v Christ Church: We faced Christ Church again in the semi-final due to them qualifying as best runner-up from the three group stages. Once again, Christ Church batted strongly in their first 4 overs and looked to be running away with game. However, our bowlers pulled the match from the jaws of defeat by taking 4 wickets in their final two overs. It was close at the end, but the Edge Hill team did brilliantly to win the match by 7 runs!
Final - Edge Hill v William Shrewsbury: William Shrewsbury were clearly our strongest opponents of the day. They batted first and clattered boundary after boundary, setting a high total for Edge Hill to better. After a slow start, the team got the run rate moving, especially when Olly wielded the bat and hoiked some over the boundary. It was always a tough run race though, and despite their best efforts, the team could not match the big WS run total.
All the players played brilliantly today and were delighted with second place! Their bowling was excellent and got them through the group and semi-final stages. Well Done to the team for putting on a fine show today!
Congratulations on doing so well to;
Harry J, Josh, Louie, Katie, Caiden, Olly, George, Harry S and Ibrahim!
St Luke’s, Endon (Staffs Moorlands) 6-4 Edge Hill
Langdale (Newcastle-Under-Lyme) 0-6 Edge Hill (Fearne x2, Zack, Harrison x2, Mia)
Codsall Middle (South Staffs) 2-3 Edge Hill (Jack, Harrison x2)
Despite losing a tight game against St Luke’s, the team progressed through the group stage to win a semi-final place against the winner of the other group and last year’s competition, Coton Green (Tamworth).
Coton Green (Tamworth) 6-7 Edge Hill (Mia, Harrison x3, Max, Zack x2)
The team kept possession well and scored a try every time they had the ball. When they weren’t in possession, they made it very difficult for the opposition to build up try scoring moves by repeatedly tagging them. It was a close game, but the team did brilliantly to keep their noses in front!
St Luke’s (Staffs Moorlands) 5-6 Edge Hill (Zack, Mia, Cole, Harrison x2, Fearne)
The team got in front early and kept their lead by scoring each time that St Luke’s got one back. The game was won with some fine individual tries from Harrison, and some excellent team tries which came from passing from one end of the line to the other!
Many thanks to Mr Smith for coaching the team before the matches. He has taken a huge interest in these tag rugby competitions for the past 4 years and has finally seen an Edge Hill team come out on top at this level! As for the boys and girls who represented the school today, each and every one of them played a part and deserves nothing but praise for the effort they put in!
A huge Well Done to the team for becoming County Tag Rugby Champions!
Edge Hill: Mia, Fearne, Charlie P, Harrison, Jack, Max, Charlie F, Cole and Zack!
A scrambled goal from Harrison put the team in front in the first half, but Tower View came back strongly in the second half to pull even then take the lead with a second goal. The Sixes definitely had the better of the first half and the match could have had a different outcome if just one of their many shots on goal had gone in. However, it wasn’t to be and they sadly exit the competition.
Well done to all the boys for trying so hard!
