Yr 7 Football vs Bournville (League fixture) - Tuesday 9th March

Lost 3 - 4

In a very closely contested game both teams played well throughout the 50 mins and either team could have won.  St Thomas Aquinas kept coming back into the game but eventually ran at of time to find the equaliser.  A great competitive game of football from both sides!

Well done to all the Year 7 lads for their efforts.

Year 12 vs 13 football game - Wednesday 10th March

This was a fantastic game of football which was played with great enthusiasm from all involved.  Year 12 showed their skill by keeping the senior Year 13 players at bay throughout the game.  There was a late surge from the Year 13 lads with some fine performances from Declan McKeon and Ollie Statham.  However, with a better organised Year 12 team and notable play from Andrew Kenny, Jack Darby and Gerry Grandon, the better team won.

Thank you to all the players who helped out and therefore assisted our A level P.E. students in their assessment for their P.E. coursework.

Villa Cup Semi Final Report
On Wednesday afternoon our previously undefeated team travelled to Washwood Heath School for the semi-final of the most prestigious cup in local schools football, the Aston Villa Cup. Our opponents yet again were to be Bishop Challenor a team that is always well organised and determined to succeed.

The first half was goalless although Tommies had the better of the game. Good opportunities were created but our front players were hesitant in front of goal.

The second half saw us play with the slope and wind and although we were again well on top, there was a risk of being caught on the counter attack. However, the goal eventually came and it was this good finish from Dale Kenny that was to be the only goal of the match.

Particularly outstanding for us were our captain Jack McGinn and the ever improving Lewis Johnson.

The final is traditionally played at Villa Park but that has to be at the generosity of the club. The date has yet to be announced but is likely to be at the end of May. Tudor Grange School from Solihull will be the opposition in the final.

A big thank you to all the staff and parents who gave their support.
