STONEYGATE YEAR 4 V WELLINGBOROUGH 4 – THURSDAY 27TH FEBRUARY 2014

UNITED TEAM MATCH

Stoneygate United 0 – 4 Wellingborough A

The Year 4 United team consisting of Kian D, Tom M, Will McE, George B, Daniel R and Max W (Captain) played Wellingborough year 4 A team in a 6 a side game at home in a return fixture.

Having lost the previous fixture 2-9 the team were worried about a repeat. Pre-empted changes were made to the side with Kian D now playing in goal and Daniel R being given the attacking role. Despite this it looked like another high score would prevail and the team went in at half time trailing 0-4.

At half time they were told to put in more effort especially when getting back into defence. Lead by a ‘Man of the Match’ performance by Will McE, Stoneygate stopped many attacks and indeed could have score twice on the break. Full Time 0 – 4

Man of the match went to Will McE for his tireless running and the champagne moment went to Kian D for an outstanding save in the second half from a powerful shot.

CITY TEAM MATCH

Stoneygate City 2 – 3 Wellingborough B

Scorers: Will M – 2

The Year 4 City team consisting of Alex M, Declan M, Will M, Max H, Ed B, George C and James B (Captain) played Wellingborough B at the same time as the A team’s match. This game was an even better effort from the boys as they lost the first fixture 0-5 and this time narrowly lost 2-3

Will M scored both goals and rightly took the man of the match award. Full Time 2 – 3

To see both teams improve in this manner was very exciting and positive for the future. Thanks to those who came to support.

Soccer Colts v Wellingborough

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


On Wednesday the entire Colts squad travelled away to Wellingborough and they ended up playing their 7-a-side matches in some fairly extreme conditions. It was great credit to our boys that, despite the rain, the mud, the strong wind, the cold and the hail, we did not hear any moaning. They just got on with it and tried to win their matches.

The A VII (featured in the photographs above) produced the performance of the day. They took the lead at the height of the storm, with a goal scored by Dom. Then there were chances to both teams and some stout defending was required by Dom, Arjun, Henry and Archie Gi. In the second half Wellingborough hit the post twice, equalised and then missed a series of chances to take the lead. However, the drama of the day was not over. Having weathered this second ‘storm’ we broke upfield and Fin scored in spectacular fashion to record a 2-1 win. It was a victory for determination and tenacity as the work ethic of the whole team, in trying conditions, was superb and Wellingborough were the better side for large parts of the match.

The B VII produced a fine performance to record a 1-1 draw. Mr J reported that they outplayed their opponents in all aspects of the game, apart from on the scoreboard. Despite the mud, they still put together some fine passing play, led by Matthew, Alfie and Ed. Hugo and Oliver were the key members of our defence. Matthew scored our only goal of the game.

Our C VII, D VII and E VII encountered strong opposition, as Wellingborough’s larger year groups took effect. The boys worked hard and showed some fine footballing skill, but we suffered three defeats. Our defences struggled to clear the ball in the poor conditions.

The C VII lost 1-6, with a goal from Will H. Harry took the ‘Man of the Match’ award and Kian, Tom and Will H all played particularly well.
The D VII lost 0-6, with key performances coming from Karan (‘M of M’), Sidd, Alex and Monty.
The E VII lost 0-9, with Josh taking the ‘Man of the Match’ award and Jake and George making strong contributions.

First Team Rugby v Wellingborough School.

Our first team finished their season with a comfortable victory on Wednesday beating Wellingborough 59-17. In truth, we did not play as well as we had on Monday, but did enough to complete our first unbeaten season for a number of years.                      Scorers: Harry five tries, Jon three tries and one conversion, Kipp, Ollie and Sam one try each. Pip also added six conversions. Special mention should be made of Sam at scrum half, who enjoyed another excellent performance.

This has been a wonderful season for the boys. They have produced some exciting rugby scoring over four hundred points and have all developed as players. Kipp has been a captain who has led by example, Ollie has scored twenty one tries, Harry  and Jon have added fifteen each. Mention should also be made of Pip who kicked thirty three conversions. With a lot of Year 7 boys in the team, the future also looks good for next season.

Well done boys!

Year 3 Netball

Joanna, Gizella, Evie, Millie, Amy, Tasia, Hannah, Eliza

The Year 3 girls have made a flying start with their netball this term, with a huge amount of enthusiasm and determination.

We have learnt and been concentrating on chest and shoulder passes, attacking, defending and dodging along with the court positions, rules of the game and how to play a match. All the girls have a sound knowledge of the game and of match etiquette.

The girls were very excited before our first match, which was at home against Stamford. We had two teams and thank you to the Year 4 girls who came and made up the second team. After a tentative start, we soon managed to find our feet and everybody had a good match. The captains were Joanna and Hannah and the final scores were 4 – 0 to Stoneygate and 1 – 0 to Stamford.

Our second match was away at Great Houghton and approached with great excitement. We played as one team and rotated positions each quarter. There was some fantastic play in defence from Gizella and Joanna and Evie and Tasia found lots of space whilst attacking. Stoneygate dominated throughout and were the better team on the day with a 4 – 0 win. Evie was the captain.

Finally, our team of 7 (one away) captained by Gizella travelled to Wellingborough who have 19 girls in this year group. We were very confident throughout both matches and won 6 – 0 against their A team and 1 – 0 against their B’s. Well done to Evie who scored 5 goals and Joanna and Millie who scored 1. Amy worked extremely hard in defence and intercepted well and Hannah made safe passes enabling us to move the ball towards our goal.

A fantastic start, well done to all the girls.

Year 3 Tag Rugby vs. Wellingborough – Thursday, 21st November.

Our Year 3 Tag rugby team carried on their successful season at Wellingborough last Thursday. Wellingborough have more children in their year group so we played three matches against their “A” team and two mixed ability sides.

In truth we played our best rugby against their best team, winning convincingly by 7 tries to 2. The boys passed well in wet conditions, showed good support play and tagged with great determination resulting in five turnovers.

We also won our two other matches to complete an enjoyable afternoon.

My thanks to all the parents for their continued support.

Scorers:

  • James: 7 tries
  • Harris: 4 tries
  • William: 3 tries
  • Harry, Dylan, and Edward: 1 try each

Other members of the team were: Arush and Freddie.
