Well done to the boys in year 6. The house matches were beautifully played and participation was excellent with almost every student taking part. It was great to see so many boys enjoying the games and taking pride in representing their houses. I know some of the boys were deeply disappointed to miss out due to injury but it is vital they rest as they have lots of time to play competitive sport.
The participation competition was a great event. Manning scored a wonderful goal for the Celts after letting the ball brush through his hair then turning and calmly slotting into the bottom corner. Moments later Evans of the Normans equalised after breaking clear. Both boys showing excellent composure in front of goal. In the Vikings and Normans match it was great to see some of the boys rewarded for their hard work this term. Rowson, who has really flourished this year scored a predators goal and clearly enjoyed celebrating it. This was quickly cancelled out by another opportunistic finish from Catheral. Other goals in the competition were scored by Rodger and Strudwick of the Celts. Strudwick's goal coming after some excellent inter play from the Celts that wouldn't have looked out of place on Match of the day. The Celts finished this competition with the most points but I was thrilled to see all of the boys enjoying the event so much.
in the other competition Vikings came out on top after a close fought competition. It was great to see Harvey give such a good account of himself and the familiar faces of Eames, Hembrow McKinley and Cook to name but a few caught the eye throughout. The boys played with great spirit and it is always pleasing to see the boys interact with the other houses post match and show the true values of sport.
Vikings - 7 points
Celts - 4 Points
Saxons - 3 points
Normans - 2 points
Many thanks also to Liam, George and Will who did a cracking job with referring and supporting the players.
