Under 14 Girls’ Football
– Well done to the Under 14 Girls’ Football team who played their final football matches last week at Matthew Moss High School, finishing fourth overall in Rochdale! Congratulations to: Eve Thornsby, Rachael Goulding, Jessica Hughes, Anne-Blue White, Drew Hurst and Maisy Phillips.
Year 8 Boys’ Football
– The Year 8 Boys’ Football team were unfortunate to be knocked out on penalties in the quarter final of the Rochdale Schools 6 a side Cup Competition. Oulder Hill were drawn in a tough group with St Cuthbert’s and Middleton Technology. OH drew 1-1 with St Cuthbert’s with Ethan Brierley scoring a fantastic solo goal and then beat Middleton Technology 2-0 with Ethan Brierley and Alex Johnson scoring the goals. As a result, OH progressed to the quarter finals where they faced Holy Family. OH dominated the game but the game ran its course and finished a draw (0-0). The game then progressed to penalties with OH sadly losing the shootout. The team were very unlucky and probably deserved to qualify for the semi-finals. Well done to the following boys on their excellent commitment and effort: Jake Gretton, Spencer Allen, Alex Johnson, Harris Khan, Ethan Brierley, Ethan Kwei-Sutcliffe and Hayden Bell.
