BSP Football League Update

The Year 5 and 6 footballers are continuing to enjoy participating in the BSP league and have played two more matches since my last post.

We travelled to St Andrew’s in Much Hadham for a match on Wednesday 7th June. We were a Year 5 team as Year 6 were away on their PGL residential and as they were a team of Year 6 pupils we held our own and played really well, drawing the match 1:1.

On a blisteringly hot afternoon of Thursday 15th June, we hosted the match against High Wych. Once again we played to a high standard with several notable goals and goals saved by our keeper Oscar. Unfortunately, we were beaten in the last 5 minutes of the game taking the score to 3:2 to our opponents.

We are now looking forward to our next match against St Josephs and are hoping for a win this time!

2017 BSP Tag Rugby Tournaments

Once again we participated in the BSP tag tournaments which have become a popular fixture in our school sporting calendar.

It was the turn for the Year 5 pupils on Thursday 8th June (accompanied by Mrs Wilson) to take part in what is now the biggest event organised by BSP with over 12 schools taking part.

Due to a new ruling by the RFU, this can longer be a competitive event but this did not diminish the excitement and level of play from the children.

On Thursday 15th June, it was the turn of the Year 4 pupils accompanied by Mrs Tozer. This is what Mrs Tozer said about the afternoon’s events:

We played three teams, Twickenham, Murrayfield and Millenium and each team won all of their matches.  I can not emphasise enough how great all the children were and how much we all enjoyed the sense of camaraderie and sporting endeavour.  They played well and to the best of each child’s potential.  Obviously it was great to win but the friendly nature of the festival meant that hopefully everyone enjoyed it as much as we did.  It was good to see two of our ‘old boys’ there refereeing (Freddie  and Luke ).
