Year 10 netball

Another successful evening for year 10 netballers 
The year 10 netballers returned to the court for their area tournament tonight. We took 2 strong teams to help battle to become the area champions. 


The black team started off with a fantastic game against NLS, with outstanding shooting from Freya and Phoebe winning 8-0. Unfortunately, from then they had some really difficult matches where they finished the wrong side of the score. They narrowly missed out by 1 goal to Kings High, 8-7. Their 3rd match they played Aylesford where they lost 9-5, and finished the evening against Myton battling out a 7-3 defeat. The girls played fantastically throughout the evening and the defence of Zoe, Minnie, Toula and Izzy never let their heads drop and battled hard throughout. 


The green team played in a different division, where they took on NLS (A), Kenilworth, Kingsley and Campion.  They started the evening with a 18-3 victory, the defence stayed tight throughout the evening not letting in a goal in the the following 2 matches against Kenilworth and Campion winning 15-0 and 20-0. They faced Kingsley in the final match which the girls continued to play at the same pace and saw them win 15-1. A huge volume of shots this evening, 68 goals scored by Amelia, Holly and Abby meant that the girls were untouchable. 


Well done the Southam Green team, finishing victorious and being crowned champions of the area. 


Outstanding netball tonight girls, well done! Miss Oakley enjoyed watching the quality of netball on display tonight. Remember there is a league match next week against NLS.

Year 10 Football

Southam’s Spot Kick Success!! 

Wednesday evening saw the year 10’s travel to Studley in the District Cup on the back of a comprehensive win on Monday evening. The boys were in full confidence of another strong performance. 

In a fairly even first half there were limited chances but a terrific save from Jasper and a double goal line clearance from Archie and Fred kept the score at 0-0 heading into the break. 

The second half started with Josh chasing down the defender and nearly deflecting the ball into the net. Southam played better football and were playing in neat triangles and created a couple of chances but couldn’t score. The back 3 were marshalled fantastically by Captain Noah and restricted Studley to long range efforts. A goal was scored against the run of play with a free kick scored from 30 yards out giving Studley a 1-0 lead. The team didn’t let their heads drop and hit back instantly after a great long ball from Oli was latched onto by Josh who was fouled by the keeper giving Southam the chance to equalise from the spot; which Oli gladly did. The game continued to be end to end and neither team could find a winner. 

Straight to penalties. 

After the disappointment of last weeks result, all 4 of the Southam penalty takers took confident penalties (Noah, Ronan, Oli and Harry)  and scored giving Southam a 4-2 win!

I’m very proud of how the team reacted after going a goal down and also how they put last weeks penalty loss behind them to get the win tonight! 

Well done gents

YEAR 10 FOOTBALL

Monday evening saw the year 10 football team travel to Trinity to play their second game of the season. The boys were hopeful to put in a strong performance following a loss on penalties in their fixture last week vs The Ferrers school in the National Cup. 

The team started well with Leo finishing a chance in the first minute after good play from Ronan. A minute later Leo saw an effort bounce off the post before he then turned provider for Ronan to score the second goal. Charlie ventured out of defence and played a lovely through ball to Oli W who beat his man to put in a fine cross for Leo to grab his second goal of the afternoon. Jay nearly got in on the action but was denied by the first of a number of good saves from the Trinity keeper. A fourth goal did follow after Leo was denied his hat trick Oli W smashed the rebound into the top corner. Another good save from the keeper gave Ronan the chance to whip a corner straight on to Harry’s head to make it 5-0. The midfield were commanding and producing some good football, Spike was quickest to pounce on a rebound from Archie’s fierce drive to slot home. Leo did get his hat trick goal after a lovely lofted chip from Harry allowed Leo the opportunity to finish. The scoring didn’t stop there, Jay got on the score sheet with a rocket into the top corner that ricocheted off both posts it was struck that hard! Leo grabbed the last goal of the first half rounding the keeper before tucking into an empty net. Half time score 9-0. 

After a quick half time chat to continue playing the ball round and working on things from training Ronan fired in the 10th with a well placed finish. Southam continued to press and win the ball high up the pitch, Reshawn retaining the ball well in the midfield. Jay then scored another fine goal from distance before Spike grabbed his second after a neat pass from Leo. Ronan netted again after good team play down the right hand side from Noah and Spike. The scoring was completed by Archie who beat a number of players before scoring past the keeper. 

Final score 14-0. 

A mention must go to the back 4 of Fred, Jasper, Noah and Charlie who played a nice high line and allowed the opportunity for the midfield to start the attacks through Oli R who kept picking the ball up in deeper positions. 

A great team performance with some spectacular goals thrown in. The team play again on Wednesday in a cup match vs Studley. 

Well done gents and thanks to the parents who came to support.
