Despite the inclement weather this week our U10 and U11 sports teams have been in action this week. All of the teams this week have shown great improvement over this half of term and we are looking forward to the fixtures that are planned for next half of term.
U10 v RGS Springfield
This week our U10 boys took on a combined Year 5 and Year 6 team from RGS Springfield on a rather blustery afternoon. The boys started extremely well and took a convincing early lead. Khaleefah, Jack M and Freddie M proved to be a lethal combination upfront and were well supported by the rest of the team. It was great to see lots of parental support from the side lines. Very impressive given the terrible weather conditions!
U11 Triangular with Blue Coat and Monmouth.
On Wednesday afternoon we welcomed Blue Coat School and Monmouth School to Hawford for an U11 triangular football tournament. Despite the increasing winds, the boys enjoyed a fantastic and very successful afternoon of football. In difficult conditions, the Hawford boys demonstrated impressive passing skills and outstanding work-rate throughout. The highlights of the afternoon included two clean sheets from Ned, excellent defending from Oscar, an impressive solo goal from Will L and a fantastic performance by Nico.
U10 v Blue Coat School
The U10 girls travelled to Blue Coat School in Birmingham to play their U11 D and E teams. The girls worked extremely well together, communicating, and finding space quickly. The first quarter started well with Hawford dominating the play. There were great interceptions from Erin L and Poppy C, and Arya P and Issie F were a brilliant partnership under the goal with Arya scoring 2 goals early on. Excellent play continued, with Lottie H and Erin scoring two more goals. The final score was 4-0 to King’s Hawford. Miss Holtham and Miss Lake’s player of the match was Lottie for her fantastic teamwork, spatial awareness, and good defending.
U11 v Blue Coat School
What a hard fought, closely contested match. Florrie was the Captain and was awarded the first centre pass. Hawford were struggling with the storm winds and realised quickly long passes would not work today and immediately adapted game play. Short sharp passes allowed us to regularly get the ball into the shooting area. The girls all communicated well and worked effectively as a team.
Mrs Beech was thrilled with the result and claimed it was one of the best performances to date by her team. All girls worked hard but Mrs Beech was delighted when Captain Florrie was awarded player of the match and Michelle got the accolade for the other team. Growing in confidence with each match the girls are demonstrating super skills and teamwork! Well Done Hawford!
