U11 & U10 Netball v RGS Springfield

RGS Springfield hosted our U10 and U11 Netball teams on Wednesday. The girls played some very impressive netball and both teams kept most of the possession in their attacking end. Player of the match for the U10's was awarded to Phoebe W who dominated the court in her centre role. Phoebe R was awarded player of the match for the U11's, as her shooting from the edge of the D impressed us all. The U10's won 4-0 and the U11's won 9-1. Well done to all the girls.


U9 Netball v RGS Springfield

All of the Year 4 girls played in the match against RGS Springfield. Our girls put on a determined display against a stronger RGS Springfield team. A super goal was scored by Ruby but unfortunately RGS Springfield managed to get 7 against us. Player’s player was Martha for her determined efforts in defence. Well done! Final Score RSG Springfield 7, King’s St Alban’s 1.


U8 Netball v RGS Springfield

We hosted Springfield U8's in our sports hall on Tuesday and were pleased that we were able to rotate the team so that all the girls in Year 3 had a game. It was a lovely afternoon with the staff coaching the girls as we went along. For many it was their first ever netball match and they impressed us with how much they had remembered from their lessons. It was a close game, but with Amelia, Olivia and Zara all scoring a goal, we just won 3-2.


Colts A Football v The Elms

A mixed U10/11 Colts A football team played The Elms school on a cold ‪and windy Wednesday afternoon down at the playing fields. We found ourselves 1-0 up, with an incredible long range strike by Charlie F, nestling into the top corner of the net. We then conceded just before half time from an unfortunate miscommunication at the back. Despite this, everyone kept their heads high and showed true determination to keep going and win the game. The final score was 3-1, with goals from Bertie P, George M and Charlie F. A special mention must be made for Zach M who controlled the middle of the pitch and played a very impressive game. Every single player put in 100% effort and worked effectively as a team.

U10 B Football v The Elms

A controlled display by King’s St Alban’s gave us an eventual 6 – 0 victory over The Elms. Goals from Charlie C (3), Freddie (1), Ollie P (1) and an own goal, rounded-off a deserved win. Ollie P was Man of the Match with a commanding presence in defence, closely followed by hat-trick Charlie C. The whole team played very well. There were two stand out moments from the game, the first of which was some great inter-play between Finn and Charlie C that rounded off his hat-trick. Secondly the stunning goal by Freddie P from an unlikely angle, into the top right-hand corner. 

U9 A v King's Hawford

The U9 A football team took on King's Hawford ‪on Tuesday afternoon. We started strongly, scoring a goal through a well worked team effort that was finished off by Arthur. Unfortunately we then conceded two headers in quick succession, followed by a fine strike from the Hawford forward. The game finished 3-1 to King's Hawford.

U9 B Football v King's Hawford

The U9 B team kicked off their season on Tuesday afternoon against a well-resourced King's Hawford side. Despite not coming out on top, the boys' attitude throughout the match was exemplary. They worked hard, listened to advice and improved steadily as the match progressed. In the second half, they were starting to pass more and use the width of the pitch more effectively. Whilst all of the boys gave it their all, special mentions must go to George P for some terrific attacking play and to Sam P for working hard both in attack and defence. Well done, boys.

Swimming Gala v Abberley Hall and RGS The Grange

I had the pleasure of being at the swimming gala last night, where we hosted Abberley Hall and RGS The Grange. It was another splendid event organised by Mrs Woodger and her team. All the children did exceptionally well and it was fantastic to see the children demonstrate many of the skills that they have been practising over the last few weeks. The results were again in our favour and we must congratulate all the children for their efforts. Thank you to the parents, for their positive support at these events.  There is always a great sense of sportsmanship as we cheer on all the participants.
