Football Success

On Friday 11th November both the boys and girls football teams took part in the district rounds of the Danone Nations Cup.

The boys competition had been due to take place earlier in the week bu t poor weather had resulted in a rescheduling and the withdrawal of some teams.
The boys team of Dalton, Harry, Mckye, Ethan, Frankie, Billy and Evan from Y6 and Carter and Jenson from Y5 began their competition against Woodhall Spa. After a slightly nervous start, a goal midway through the first half settled the team down and we started to play some really good football eventually running out winners by 6 goals to nil.

Our second game was against Skegness Junior Academy A. We continued our good form and won by 4 goals to 1.
Finally,after all the teams had observed a 2 minutes silence at 11am, we played Skegness Junior B. We won this game 4 - 0 to qualify once again for the county round of this competition.

The girls competition had like the boys suffered from late withdrawals, leaving only ourselves and Friskney to contest the final. Our team of; Freya, Jessica, Rhianna, Molly, Tia M, Aimee, Olivia, Isabelle and Scarlet  (all from Y6) survived a couple of early scares before a spell of attacking pressure lead to a Friskney defender slicing the ball into her own net. This proved to be just the boost we needed and we went on to build up a four goal lead before Friskney managed to get a late goal back to make the final score 4 - 1.
The girls will now be joining the boys in the county finals to be held in Skegness in January.

Rugby Training

Our day at the Grammar School

Today we went to meet former England rugby 7’s captain Rob Vickerman at Skegness Grammar School. We took part in a training session and we also got to ask him questions about his career and other things. He is now a Sky Sports Athlete Mentor, speaker and commentator. He was at the Rio Olympics. He watched all the games and he was a commentator.

Finley said, “It felt exciting to be next to a former England rugby 7’s player."

Harry said, “It was a great time and great to inspire kids. It was so much fun. I liked it when we interacted with the other kids.”

Tia said, “It was really fun and it was a great time.”

Isabelle said, “It was a really fun and I wish I could do it again.”

Rhianna said, “It was very inspiring and I want to learn rugby 7’s.”

Ava said, “It was a great opportunity and I hope to do it again.”

Billy said,”I thought it was really good because Rob Vickerman inspired me to play rugby.”

Friskney Football Tournament

We had a very successful day at the Friskney 6 a side football tournament on Saturday 25th June.

The girls team, which was mostly made up of Year 5's (Molly, Tia M, Scarlet B, Aimee, Freya, Olivia & Isabelle) plus Chloe from Y6, were hoping to gain some experience ready for next term's competitions. They were in a competition with: Seathorne, Woodhall Spa, Partney, Friskney and Skegness Junior Academy.
They began with a match against Seathorne. In spite of having the majority of possession we were unable to get a goal and a defensive mix up saw Seathorne take the win.
We got our first points in our next game as we beat Friskney.
Our third game saw us draw with Woodhall Spa, meaning we needed to win our last two games to get through to the final.
We beat Skegness Junior Academy and then after a long wait we played Partney. Partney took the lead and looked like they were going to pip us for a spot in the final but the team kept going and managed to equalise and then score a winner to secure our place in the final.

The final was against Woodhall Spa and like the earlier match it was a close game. We spent a lot of time in the Woodhall half but they defended really well and were very dangerous on the counter attack. At the end of normal time it was still 0 - 0 so the match went into extra time with the first goal being a 'golden goal' winner.
We scored to regain the trophy for the 3rd year in a row.

In the boys competition we had 2 teams a Y5 team - again looking for experience ahead of next year's competitions and a Y6 team. In the boys' competition there were 9 teams: Alford, Richmond A, Richmond b, Seathorne, Skegness Junior, Wainfleet, Hawthorn Tree, Woodhall Spa A & Woodhall Spa B. Each team had to play each other once and then the top 4 teams were to go through to the semi-finals.

The Y5 team (Richmond B - Dalton, Mckye, Ethan M, Billy, Frankie and Evan) began with a confidence boosting 5 - 0 win over Woodhall B and went on to play very well all afternoon winning another 5 matches and losing just 2 - a narrow 3-2 loss to Seathorne and a 2-1 loss to Richmond A.

The Y6 team (Richmond A - Ben P, Keelan, Ewan, Louis, Ethan, Alfie and Freddie) went all through the league section with a 100% record with probably their toughest match coming against the Y5's.
The Y6 team came top of the league and the Y5's were just pipped for second by Seathorne on goal difference. This meant Seathorne (2nd) played Hawthorn Tree (4th) and Richmond A (1st) played Richmond B (3rd) in the semi finals.
The Y6 v Y5 game was goalless at the end of normal time and looked to be heading to a penalty shoot out until Alfie knocked in the winner from close range.
In the final Richmond A's opponents were Seathorne. The Richmond defenders stood up well to some very physical play and limited Seathorne to very few chances, whilst our attacking play led to more chances being created at the other end. In the end it took just one goal for Richmond to win back the trophy.

Kwik Cricket

A team of Y6 (Lenny, Arthur, Lily, Sam F, Keelan, Ewan & Alfie) and one Y5 pupil (Harry) recently took part in a cricket tournament at Skegness Cricket Club. Disappointingly, several teams dropped out at the last minute meaning we only got to play 2 games.
We began with a victory over Mablethorpe but then lost to a very strong Woodhall Spa team.

In our first game we beat Butterwick 1 0.
In game 2 we drew 0 0 with The Meadows. In our 3rd game we lost 1 0 to Spalding which meant we needed The Meadows to beat Butterwick if we were to make the semi final, which they did.
Group Standings
The Meadows 7
Richmond 4
Butterwick 3
Spalding 3
In the semi final we played the winners of group 2, Isaac Newton (Grantham). We took the lead in the first half. In the second half our opponents equalised to take the game into extra time. We retook the lead in the first period of extra time. This time we were able to hold on and won 2 1 to book our place in the final.
In the final St Botolph's scored an early goal to put us under pressure. They then defended extremely well. Late in the second half, the referee awarded a penalty against us which St Botolphs scored to give them a 2 0 win.

Football County Finals

On Saturday 16th January the school football team traveled to Sleaford to take part in the county round of the Danone Cup with the winners of the other seven districts.

Or first game was against Carlton Road (winners of the Boston area competition). We won this game 2 - 0.
Our second game was against Parish Church (Gainsborough) we were unlucky to lose the game 1 - 0.
Our final group game was against St Hugh's (Lincoln). Again we were unfortunate to lose after having more of the  possession and chances.

That meant we had finished third in our group and went forward to the fifth place play off against Caistor. We won this game by 2 goals to 1.

Parish Church were the overall winners.
