and well done to our Y5/6 football Team for ending the year in SILVER medal position.
After a rocky and difficult start in the Autumn Term, our boys grew and developed as a team. Despite losing every game in the first term, they became a undefeated squad for 17 consecutive matches. This meant the went into their very last game in first place position.They certainly learned what it means to be part of a team and the importance of working together. Well done boys and thanks to MrvHolroyd and Kevin Gallacher for training and managing the team.

Both teams played well on a beautiful sunny day. There were lots of opportunities to play many different teams throughout the afternoon.
The A team displayed real team spirit and worked really well together to beat Simonstone 6-1; Benjamin Hargreaves 9-6 and drawing against Gisburn 6-6 in the first round. Teams were then grouped based on their successes in the first round and then played similar standard teams. Unfortunately we lost to St Joseph's, but beat Waddington 8-7 and drew against Benjamin Hargreaves 7-7. All children were successful in scoring tries for their team and there was some excellent defensive and attacking phases. We had no substitutes for this team so it was an exhausting but rewarding afternoon.
The B team are a newly formed team with many players to the sport. After a challenging start to the afternoon, We did manage to beat Brookside in the second round. The children showed great resilience and kept their heads held high throughout the afternoon. We are extremely proud of them.
Thanks to Mr Greenwood and Mr Bargh for all your help managing 2 teams throughout the afternoon and to our resident rugby supporter (Mrs Foster) for providing much needed energy supplies as they started to tire! Thanks also to the parents who came down to support the children.
