Year 8 Football

On Monday evening, the year 8 football team hosted Stratford in a league fixture. The team were confident on building upon the last win against Myton and started brightly, with a few long range attempts from Oli, Harry and Ronan all testing the goalkeeper. Southam continued to dominate and kept the ball well through Spike, Archie and Jasper who were all looking to start attacks from wide positions. The defence and goalkeeper were rarely threatened but any long ball played over the top was comfortably dealt with by Charlie and Noah who looked to use Spike and Oliver to keep the ball. Southam did finally get the breakthrough 1 minute before half time with Josh capitalising on a misplaced clearance before holding off the defender before shooting into the net. Half time 1-0 to Southam.
Southam started the second half well and created multiple chances without converting. Joe and Reshawn were seeing lots of the ball out wide creating space for Leo to run into. Unfortunately, Stratford got themselves level with Southam giving the ball away in their defensive third before the striker calmly shot past Jasper from 20 yards. This didn’t deter Southam and almost instantly they hit back. A great passage of passing football allowed Archie to drive to the byline and pull the ball across for Josh to tap in his 2nd of the game. A really well worked team goal. From here Southam looked in control. Joe’s fast feet and darting run resulted in him being brought down in the area for a penalty. Oli stepped up and smashed the ball into the top corner to make the score 3-1 to Southam.
Another good team performance and win in the league with some very good individual performances. Joint men of the match goes to Josh for tenacious running and Archie for always looking to get on the ball and be positive. Well done gents.
See you all at training next Monday.
Well Done
Mr Turton

WARWICKSHIRE SCHOOLS CROSS-COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS

Students from across the college showed up on a bright, chilly morning at Kineton High School to pit themselves against the best runners from across the county.
We started off with 2 excellent performances from Lexie T. and Esme du B. who finished 9th and 11th. They both worked brilliantly together during the race, moving through the field to both qualify for the Warwickshire Team in the National finals.
Next up was the gutsie Marie G., who showed fantastic perseverance and courage to finish the testing Kineton course in 29th.
Our Junior Boys team continued with the impressive performances from our students to battle with a highly competitive field to finish 16th (Oliver W), 26th (Jonathan I.) and 31st Jasper J.
The most successful of our teams was the Inter Girls. Lead home by Elspeth U. (5th) and closely followed by the Emily L. (10th) and Emily L.(11th), they comfortably won the team race, and all have been selected as members or reserves for the Warwickshire English schools squad.
Also in the same race, but running in the Senior girls event was Rositsa G., who ran a typically brave race and finished in a well deserved 7th to also gain county selection.
It was a fantastic performance from all of our students and I look forward to seeing many of them competing for the county in the National Schools finals in March.
Congratulations to you all,
Mr MacGibbon
