First Matches of the Spring Term

This week pupils have enjoyed their first matches of the Spring Term with the U8’s and U9’s in action on the football pitches and netball courts.

Girls Netball:

U8 v RGS The Grange

The U8 girls travelled to RGS The Grange on Tuesday to play their first ever netball fixture. Three small-sided games took place and each team demonstrated some excellent play. The girls quickly found their feet and it was clear that game awareness improved as the play went on. There were some great goals scored in all of the matches, especially as the girls haven’t had much practice of shooting using the posts. Stars of the week go to Pippa P, Chloe T and Izadora M-P.

First Matches

U9 v RGS The Grange

The U9s enjoyed their first netball match this week against RGS; we were 5 team members down so ended up playing a 5-a-side game and a 4-a-side one, using two RGS players to make up the numbers.

The girls were all excited to play and enjoyed putting their skills to the test. All the girls played the 5-a-side team and were able to play a few positions. Despite all chasing the ball to start with, the girls improved as the game went on and even managed to score a couple of goals.

A great first march by all.

Boys Football

U8 v RGS The Grange

Our U8 footballers enjoyed their first competitive fixtures of the season against RGS the Grange on Tuesday. It was great to see the boys on the pitch, having missed so much football in the last two years. There were some battling performances. It was good to see all boys giving their all and scoring some fantastic individual and team goals.

U9 v RGS The Grange

On Tuesday afternoon the U9 boys were finally able to play their first football match for the school, having missed out on the football term during Year 3 due to lock down. We welcomed three teams from RGS The Grange and three highly competitive and entertaining matches ensued. The Hawford boys worked really hard in defence, against a strong RGS side, and began to develop their passing and moving skills when in possession. There were many plus points from the games and lots of key areas to continue to develop on. We look forward to putting these developments in place in next week’s fixture with The Downs Malvern.
