Y5/6 Girls Football away vs Highfield – Lost 5-1 (8/11/18)
8 November 2018
The girls went to Highfield this week for a league fixture. Despite playing a very good team the girls defended brilliantly and despite going two goals down in the first half, kept their heads up and managed to score a goal of their own through a great finish from Eva! As the team pushed for the equaliser in the second half they were caught out a couple of times on the break; the slippery conditions also making it tricky to defend, but there were definitely lots of positives to take from the game.
Y5/6 Boys Football away vs Shadwell 2nd team – Won 3-0 (7/11/18)
7 November 2018
The boys got their half term of fixtures underway on Wednesday as they travelled to Shadwell. Playing on a slippery pitch in the rain could have caused some issues, but the team have been working very hard to improve so far this season and their hard work was evident as they were able to take the lead, albeit with a deflected shot in the first half. The boys’ energy was clear to see as they kept up the pressure in the second half and were able to add two more goals. Not only that, but they were able to not concede on the defensive end, which was a great achievement for the team as a whole!
5/6 Girls Football away at Meanwood – Lost 6-0 (6/11/18)
6 November 2018
The girls got their half term underway today as they played Meanwood in the league. Although Meanwood deserved their win, the game was closer than the score line suggests, and everyone took responsibility for their jobs on the pitch. Despite the result, there were still lots of positives to build on for future games this week!

Y5/6 Girls Football away at St Augustine’s (19/10/18) – Drew 0-0
19 October 2018
On Friday the girls made the long trip across Leeds to St Augustine’s. The game was very competitive throughout, and the team were able to consistently defend with the same intensity that they had showed in the previous game. There were once again great saves from Ruby, but also great organisation and last ditch tackles from the defenders! Even when there were moments towards the end when we were stretched, we kept our focus and were able to gain a well-earned point!
Y5/6 Girls Football away vs Wetherby St Joseph’s (16/10/18) – Lost 2-0
16 October 2018
In their second league outing of the season the team travelled to Wetherby. In what was a close first half, both teams had chances to score, and the team needed Ruby in goal to make several spectacular stops! The half time score remained 0-0 and although the girls had been on top in the first half, it was Wetherby who took the lead during the second. They were able to increase their lead late in the game as the girls pushed for an equaliser. Based on the second half play Wetherby deserved the win, but the girls played well and will be looking to build on a very good first half performance in the future.
Y5/6 Boys Football match away at Bardsey (10/10/18) – Lost 11-1
10 October 2018
The boys played their second league game in quick succession as they travelled to Bardsey. Although the team got off to a shaky start, conceding early on, they levelled out throughout the first half, remaining competitive, narrowly trailing 3-0 at halftime. Even though we were able to score through a great goal by Alfie, the game got away from the boys a bit towards the end, as Bardsey scored a few goals in quick succession to run away with it. Still, there were some positives and the boys did play well in different areas of the game; our next job is to try and maintain that good play for longer periods in future games.
Y5/6 Girls Football away at IHOM (9/10/18) – Lost 4-1
9 October 2018
In their first league game of the season the girls played Immaculate Heart. Although the result didn’t go or way, there were lots of positives to take from a match against a very good team. We are a new team learning to work together. The girls couldn’t be faulted for their effort and enthusiasm and any improvements will come with experience.
Y4, 5 & 6 Cross Country Competition at Brigshaw High School (8/10/18)
8 October 2018
This week we took Cross Country teams from Years 4, 5 & 6 to the Regional Cross Country Competition at Brigshaw High School. All children ran brilliantly and even though none of our teams managed to qualify, we did get some which were very close to doing so. Our Y4 girls came 6th place, out of 19 teams, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the City Finals. Our Y6 girls also did very well, finishing in 7th place out of 22 teams in their race! Although no teams qualified, we did get two individual runners through to the City Finals, and special well done to Alfie and Eva, both in Y6, who finished 6th and 11th respectively, out of 120 runners in each of their races! They will now go onto compete against the best runners in Leeds in February.
Y5/6 Boys Football match away at Deighton Gates (5/11/18) – Lost 11-0
5 October 2018
After a positive result in the previous game the boys travelled to Deighton Gates in their first league game of the season. Although the team might not have got the result they were hoping for, they demonstrated lots of skills in other areas, such as teamwork, sportsmanship and effort against a very good Deighton Gates team. The boys are always learning and lots of aspects which can be improved upon will come with experience, which we will try to build upon in our next game.
Bramham Boys Football away at Shadwell (19/9/18) – Drew 2-2
19 September 2018
The boys’ team also got their season underway in a pre-season friendly trip to Shadwell. With pretty much a new squad the team were excited to see how they would settle in as a team. With a string wind blowing around the pitch, it made it difficult to control the ball and settle down. It was Shadwell who took the lead after a good run and finish from their striker found the net. Bramham were able to equalise when a cleared corner was played back in from Alfie and deflected off a Shadwell defender to make it 1-1. The team went behind again just before half time when a pass played beyond Issaac in goal was again tapped in by their striker. The second half saw a lot of Bramham pressure and they were finally able to make it count when Dylan’s run and finish found the top left hand corner. The result was fair and on another day the team could have won it. With a bit more experience behind them it could be a really positive season for the team.
Bramham Girls Football away at Shadwell (18/9/18) – Won 3-1
18 September 2018
The girls’ team travelled to Shadwell this week as they played a pre-season friendly. With a lot of new faces in the team, the girls worked together brilliantly to get off to a strong start when Lilly’s left footed shot went in off the left hand post. Soon after this Mia, making her school debut, added a second for the team, with the score at halftime staying 2-0 to Bramham. Going into the wind in the second half the team still played brilliantly; Mia added her second, and despite Shadwell getting a goal of their own with a deflected shot, Bramham were able to hold on for the win. A great team performance in a game played in fantastic spirits, it was great for the girls to get onto the pitch and complete their first game on their way to what will hopefully be an excellent season.
