In our first game we were unfortunate to lose 2 - 0 against Walkwood, who went on to win the entire competition. Next we were beaten 3 - 0 by Swanland, 4 - 0 by St James and 3 - 0 by Codsall. Our final game was the closest of the day as we lost 1 - 0 against Sacred Heart.
Although results did not go our way nobody gave up and we showed great determination throughout. With six of the team being able to play in next year's competition it is hoped we can learn  from the experience and come back stronger next season.

Codsall and Walkwood from group A, together with West Bridgford and Whitchurch from group B went through to the semi-finals.
West Bridgford defeated Codsall on penalties whilst Walkwood beat Whitchurch.
In the final it was  Walkwood 1 West Bridgford 1 at the end of normal time, with Walkwood winning the penalty shootout.

The sporting events that I’ve been to:
Cross country x2, football, athletics, rowing, indoor football, swimming, SAQ , netball talent day, dance x2, netball, football PLP, QuickSticks, Multiskills talent day.

My favourite sporting event:
 My favourite sporting event was either Football, dancing or cross country, I like doing sporting events because I like doing different sports. If I haven’t done a sport before and been picked for it I like to try a new sport like this year I did SAQ and I wasn’t too sure what to do but I did it.

Why I like doing sports:
I like doing sports because I have fun playing them and I enjoy going against other schools because in some sports you have to work with other schools with people you don’t know.

The whole aim in sports competitions:
The whole aim in sports competitions is to have fun and take part and sometimes it’s about winning all the sporting events are really fun.

Boys County Football

Saturday 24th February saw the boys finally get to play in their county finals after the previous attempt to play had been postponed in January.
The squad of Luke, Corey, Owen, George, Emerson and Ollie from Y5 plus Jenson and Max from Y6 began their tournament with a 3 - 1 victory against St Thomas' of Boston.
In our next game we needed a late equaliser against Birchwood (Lincoln) to draw 2-2 and go into our last group game knowing a draw would be enough to see us into the semi-finals. We had to work really hard for another 2-2 draw against Malcolm Sargent Primary from Stamford who were reigning champions having beaten us in the final last year.
As runners up in our group we were drawn against the winners of the other group Spalding Parish.This was a repeat of last years semi-final. Parish scored first and yet again we had to fight back to draw level and force the game into extra-time. As the game went on we got stronger and were able to take the lead and then hold on for a place in the final.

In the final we were up against Bourne Westfield who had beaten Birchwood 3 - 0 in the other semi-final. With Ollie struggling after a bang on the head we had to change our starting lineup for the first half of the final. The game was very close and it looked like Bourne's extra height and strength would see them through. At halftime it was still 0-0 but we were now playing into the wind. By now, Ollie had recovered enough to retake his place and we began to cause them more and more problems. Midway through the second half we were able to create a clear chance and Max slotted the ball past their goalkeeper to give us the lead. The last few minutes seemed like they were never going to end but Luke was able to keep the ball out of our goal helped and we held on to become county champions for the first time since 2014.
We can now look forward to the Midlands Region finals on the 5th May at Nottingham University

Girls County Football Finals

Saturday 3rd February, Wainfleet Road, Skegness
Freya P, Olivia D, Mayzi, Maya, Macey-Jayne, Grace C, Amaleigh, Lily-Mai and Tegan represented not just our school but the coastal district at a very cold county finals.
We drew our first game thanks to a late equaliser but then narrowly lost our next two games to finish 4th in our group.
In the play-off for 7th and 8th we were down to six fully fit players but battled on and were unfortunate to lose by the odd goal. 


Sam P, Benjamin and Grace B from Y6 together with Joshua from Y5 took part in a goalball competition at Skegness Grammar School on the 31st January.
Only one member of the team had any experience of playing the sport before so they did very well to finish in 3rd place overall from the 8 teams taking part.
