Friday 7th February

St Peters 6 – 0 Grange

Team: Caden Dryden (C) Ethan Rees, Kye Neilsen, Harry Badland, Reon Thapa, Amadou Jallow, Matthew P, Ashton Baker and Aaroha Gurung

It was a cold evening down at Samuel Cody football pitches, and I am sure the parents who watched would agree. This was Grange’s very first league match in a time long and the boys worked their socks off throughout the whole match. The score does not reflect on how well the boys worked as a team. They played a very strong St Peters’ team, who had some very talented footballers and I think our Grange boys would agree. We are certainly going to learn from this match and stay positive ready for our next match on Thursday 27th March. The only way is up!

Tower Hill 7-0 Grange

Team: Caden Dryden (C) Ethan Rees, Kye Neilsen,  Amadou Jallow, Matthew P, Ashton Baker, Jayden Bennett, Shayun Thapa, Jack Keen and Shay Page

This match was against a very strong Tower Hill side. They had a great keeper and some great set pieces. Our boys communicated very well together and played well as a team. Not once did they let their spirits drop. Even at the end of the match they were still laughing and smiling. We played a strong defensive team, with some players moving all over the place covering every space on the pitch. We have now put into place training practises for the boys to work on set pieces and practise working as team, so hopefully this will have a huge impact on our next match. Fingers crossed!

St Marks C Of E Primary School 9 – 0 Grange B

Team: David T, Sienna, Rida, Luka, Jess B, Michelle and Enes

This was our first match of the season and our first match these year 6 pupils have ever played in. They played extremely well against a strong St Marks team. The big difference was certainly height, which the children from Grange gave themselves the nick name of ‘tiny warriors’. They were exactly that. They did not give up and kept giving 100%! Their communication improved as the game went on and they were starting to notice the spaces more. I am sure they will come back fighting, ready for our next match!
