School News – Week Commencing 1st October 2018

Year 7 Football

Our new Year 7 boys’ football team made the trip to Wardle for the first match of the season.  In appalling conditions: a muddy pitch and driving rain the joint management team of Mr O’Doherty and Mr Pullen coped well!  Only mild hypothermia.

The team were amazing.  One nil up in five minutes, Alfie Merrick netting from a cross from Lucas Edwards.  Lucas continued to terrorise the poor Wardle right-back, another sublime cross gifted Josh Hughes his first goal of the season.  Two nil with 75% of the possession at half time.

In the second half Wardle fought back.  They tightened their defence and managed to pull a goal back.  As the rain got heavier and the pitch more boggy, a lovely passing move saw Josh feed a ball through to Alfie who made his strike on goal look so, so easy.


Notable performances from the back three Joe Kershaw, Brody Hill and Jonah Britain.  Very little got through!  The man-of-the-match was Lucas Edwards but well done to the whole squad:

Harrison Edmond            Oliver Linger

Joe Kershaw                     Brody Hill

Jonah Britain                     Jacob Davies

Aaron Horrocks                Lucas Edwards

Alfie Merrick                     Josh Hughes

Louis Norberry                 Josh Charlton

And Naa’il Ansari
