Tuesday 5th June
We took 10 children (5 boys and 5 girls) to a Rounders tournament at Netherwood School. Eleven other schools took place in the event and we were placed in a group with Brierley, Ladywood and Birkwood.
The winners of each group would go forward to participate at the Barnsley Finals. After a close opening match we managed to beat Brierley 12-8. We followed this up with a 4-1 victory against Birkwood. We knew that a win in the last game against Ladywood would secure a place at the Barnsley Finals.
Ladywood batted first and and managed to score 2 1/2 rounders, we comfortably best this scoring 7 1/2 to secure a place at the finals, which will take place on Tuesday 19th June.
A huge well done to the following children: Rhys, Toby, Coby, Jack, Jacob, Abbie, Jessica, Natasha, Elouise and Ellie.

Friday 26th January
The school football team took part in the next round of league matches at Jump Primary School. The team made up of Conor Bacon, Harry Oldfield, Coby Bennett, Hayden Oliver, Toby Crowcroft, Kayden Hastie, Rhys Copnell and captain Jack Fenton, took on Hoyland Common and Jump Primary School.
In the first match we played Hoyland Common and started the game really well and raced into a 2 goal lead with Rhys Copnell getting both goals. Half way through the second half and Common managed to pull one back. Common then dominated the game and were pushing for an equaliser but we managed to hold firm with Conor making several miraculous saves in goal. Finally he was beaten late in the game by a wonder strike. Withe the score at 2-2 we were hanging on and again Conor saved our bacon with more great saves. The match finished with the result 2-2.
Into the second game against Jump and we dominated the game from the start, hitting the post twice and creating several other fantastic chances. Late in the half Jump managed to pitch a goal with their only meaningful attack of the half. Into the second half and again we created more chances, Jump scored a second leaving us with an uphill task. With just 3 minutes remaining Jack scored to bring us back into the game, sadly we ran out of time and lost the game 2-1.
The team have made me extremely proud, the spirit and determination that they have shown as a team is great to see and they have worked tirelessly in every game we have played. We have become a very competitive team and are managing to show what we can really achieve with hard work.
Well done lads.
Next match Friday 9th February at Greenfield
