Year 10 Girls Football Report

Throughout the last 5 weeks, the year 10 girls' football team have played some outstanding football at Colmer's astro turf pitches in Rubery. We have had some fantastic results with the girls being undefeated until the last week where they unfortunately lost 1-0 to Bartley Green. However, we must give credit to them as all other matches were won. Lauren Wilson, the captain, stayed calm and collected in defence and with outstanding control on the ball kept pressure on the opposition's attack. Shardai Gaye in midfield supplied the forwards with some accurate overhead passes. Grace Grandon, the sharp shooter had fantastic ball control and found it easy to place the ball in the back of the net. Our top goal scorer Hayley Hunter, who played alongside Grace, also shot some quality goals. Let's not forget our brilliant goalies Zoe Gregory and Maddie Smith who made some smashing saves. Thanks to Sian Peal who stepped in at last minute when she was needed, and also a big thanks to Miss Jordan and Mr Smylie for committing themselves to taking us every Tuesday.

 7 Boys' Football vs Plantsbrook

West Midlands Cup quarter final

Lost 5 - 1

As soon as we kicked off, the opposition scored! Our defence started off a little slowly but as the match went on we got better and understood how the opposition were managing to play so well. They scored four goals but we pulled one back in the second half. As Captain, I think individually everyone did well but we could certainly improve our team play. Well done to all the lads for their efforts.

Yr 9 Boys' Rugby vs King Edward's Aston B Team (away)

8th Feb 2010


Our team played very well and were fully motivated from the start all the way to the end. We were playing a traditionally strong rugby school so we knew we had a challenge. Our scorers were Jordan Pinnock- Millar, Michael Kenny, James McKee, Ejiro Orhorhoro and Reece Chapman-Carry.

We had a great defence throughout the game and we were especially pleased when we were able to defend our own line under a lot of pressure at times. We showed good ball carrying skills and stole the ball at the breakdown several times from the opposition.

The opposition were better at rucking which is an aspect of our game we need to work on.

Score: Won 12 - 39

Year 9 Rugby Birmingham & Black Country Emerging Schools Festival 2010

On Thursday 25th February 2010, the year 9 rugby team went to Aston Old Edwardians to take part in the Birmingham & Black Country Festival for Emerging Schools. There were twenty different school teams taking part and wanting to take home the trophy.

Our first game was against Wheelers Lane Boys' who proved to be the most challenging team in our pool, as the final result was a narrow 5-0 win to Tommies.

The second game against Windsor school was a great result with Tommies winning 25 -0. The team played great together and as well as scoring several tries we made some cracking tackles especially from Trerail Peters who made numerous try-saving tackles

Our third game was another superb performance against Earl's High school winning 10 - 0. Ben Love was unstoppable, scoring three tries as he ploughed through the opposition.

A win in the fourth game would ensure that we got into the semi final.

We beat Pedmore School 20 - 0

In the Semi final we had a tense first half but came through in the second half to win 10 - 0. Wegot through to the final!

We played Cockshut Hill in our final game of the day. They were a well drilled side with several Greater Birmingham Players in their team. It was an aggressive and tough game, where we held our own but Cockshut Hill broke away on two occasions with two tries to win 10 - 0.

It was a great effort by the lads to get to the final with so many teams and therefore we are proud to say we are Birmingham and Black Country Emerging Schools Runners up for 2010.

Year 10 Rugby 7's

Never having played 7-a-side rugby competitively before, it was always going to be a tough challenge for our year 10 team which was also supplemented by four year 9's. Arriving at King Edward's Aston, the challenge grew even larger as we discovered that the other teams in the tournament were all rugby-playing grammar schools.

The gap in experience was made clear in the first match against the eventual easy winners, King Edward's Aston; the heavy defeat was a great lesson. The team showed great spirit and an ability to bounce back and win the second match against Queen Mary's Walsall. This took the team into a play off for 3rd place against Fairfax. Despite a great match, in which we showed great commitment and a vast improvement from out fist match, tiredness took over in the last two minutes and we ended up in a highly creditable 4th place overall.

Well done to all the lads involved - Daniel Cushing, Layton Bartlam, Tom Dacre, Kieron Haines, Matthew Hodges, Phill Cadogen, Pierce Butler, Jack Molloy, Ejiro Orhorhoro, Tre'rail Peters, Ben Love and Reece Chapman.
