Football Roundup

Football Match Reports and team photos from week commencing Monday 31st November to Friday 4th November.




Monday 31st November- U13s Nationals Football at home to Fairland's. Thankfully this was a local game for the Nationals round 4; Fairlands travelled to Hugh Sexey's on a glorious afternoon.  Hugh Sexey's won the game comfortably 7-0 , by playing great team football.   Goals were scored by Louis Bougourd, who bagged a hat trick, as well as Harry Banwell, Charlie Marsh, Charlie Starks, and Luke O'Brien.  Well done to everybody involved.


Tuesday 1st November - U12s were next to play their Nationals match AWAY to Millfield Prep School. 

Playing on a lovely pitch at Millfield, Hugh Sexey's found themselves 1-0 down after Millfield scored an early goal.  Hugh Sexey's woke up and eventually got in the game, playing some brilliant football which saw them winning the game 6-1. Jacob Aberdeen bagged 4 fantastic goals, added to this was Ethan Floyd's penalt; Sam Callow's thunderous bullet shot wrapped up the game.


Thursday 3rd November - U12s Girls playing their Somerset Cup match AWAY to Castle School in Taunton. Playing on a 3G pitch the girls immediately got stuck in and it wasn't long before the goals were being scored.  The team, run by Mr Lamb, should be very proud of itself as the level of football being played was superb and all the goals scored were fabulous.  

The match finished 8-0 to Hugh Sexey's.  Goals were scored by: Izzy Cook (4), Harriet Griffiths (1)and Jemima Thurling (3).This was a real team effort; well done girls.


On the same day the U13s played their Somerset Cup against Castle on the 3G pitch.  We knew this would be a very tough match as the boys at Castle are known for their footballing ability.  The game was a very close contest, and saw both teams defending like lions to prevent any goals from happening.  Louis Bougourd opened the scoring account with a lovely finish into the bottom corner.  Castle kept the pressure on and eventually equalised. 

The game finished as 1-1 draw; next was a penalty shoot out.  Hugh Sexey kept their nerves and scored all 5 penalties and won the shootout 5-4.  Great penalties taken by Harry Banwell, Charlie Starks, Louis Bougourd, Matthew Nicolaides, and Jacob Westbrook.  A great save by keeper Morgan Roberts too! Well done everyone!


Friday 4th November - U14 girls Somerset Cup AWAY to local King Alfred's school. On a cold chilly afternoon we were up against King Alfred's in Burnham on Sea. Hugh Sexey's started the game very brightly and were constantly putting the pressure on King Alfred's - only  their superb goal keeper  kept them in by pulling off some great saves.  Then Izzy Cook broke the deadlock and scored a great solo goal. 

The back four of Whittingham, Tucker, Bewley, and Powell were solid and defended really well.  The Midfield four, Ashurst, White, Roy and Pettitt piled the pressure on with some great passing football, which gave the front two -Cook and Watson- plenty of opportunities to create goals. 

Thurling, Carrington, and Watkins came on at half time and fitted into the team superbly, continuing the good work.  As the second half progressed Ashurst slotted the ball home, after a howler from the keeper, to settle the game.  A special mention must go to our keeper Puddy, who was solid all game and who is improving greatly every game.


 This was a great game to watch girls, well done!
