Cross Country Competition at Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School (27/11/17)
27 November 2017
This year we took a boys and girls team from each Y5 & Y6 class to the Cross County Regional Tournament at Cardinal Heenan High School. It was brilliant to see so many children running for school! The conditions were very muddy and slippery, but we all did our best and ran fantastic races. An extra special well done to Alfie in Y5 as he qualified for the City Finals as an individual runner, what a great achievement!
Y5/6 Boys’ Football match away at Primrose Lane (14/11/17) – Lost 6-1
14 November 2017
In the latest boys gave we travelled to play Primrose Lane in the league. We started the game the best we’d played out of any game this season and looked very organised and committed. We were unlucky to concede the goals we did to be losing 2-0 at halftime.Although Primrose scored some more in the second half, we kept it together defensively and didn’t let the game get away from us. We also grabbed a goal ourselves when Issaac put in a rebound from Tom’s shot! It was clear to see how much the team are progressing throughout the season and we played really well. Well done boys!
Y5/6 Girls Football match away vs Deighton Gates (9/11/17) – Lost 4-1
9 November 2017
In their latest fixture the girls’ team travelled to Deighton Gates for a league game. The team were used to playing on their smaller pitch, and this, the first away game of the season, saw the girls compete on a bigger pitch for the first time. Additionally, Deighton Gates have a good team who are able to take the ball forward well.Despite the challenges, the girls played well and the initial outlook was a positive one as they matched the opposition throughout the first half. They were unlucky to get caught out on the break twice towards the end of the first half.The girls were playing brilliantly; Paige was organising the defence really well and we were getting more chances in the second half. Bella pulled off some great saves in the second half to keep the game within reach, and when Connie halved the deficit it looked like we had every chance to take something away from the game.Unfortunately, as we pushed for an equaliser we were caught on the break again. Although we lost it was the best performance from the team that we’ve seen all year! Well done girls!

Y5/6 Girls Football match at home vs Holy Rosary & St Anne’s (31/10/17) - Lost 3-0
31 October 2017
The first football game back after half term saw our girls’ team host Holy Rosary & St Anne’s on Tuesday. A shorter game because of the weather set a more frantic pace to the match, with both sides more open defensively than they otherwise would have been. It was Holy Rosary who made the breathrough early on, scoring two goals in quick succession. Paige managed to pull one back from a Connie throw-in. Holy Rosary, however, put the game beyond reach as they got a third late on as Bramham pushed for an equaliser. Still, it was a good performance from the girls in what were tricky conditions.
Y5/6 Girls Football match at home vs Bardsey (18/10/17) – Won 3-2
18 October 2017
Our girls’ football team played a home game this week as they hosted Bardsey. The game started well with goals from Connie and Poppy giving the team a two goal lead. Some great defending from the team kept Bardsey out during the first half to make the score 2-0 at half time. The second half saw a Bardsey fight back as they clawed back to make the score 2-2. The girls didn’t let that shake them, however, and they kept pushing forward. It seemed like the ball just wouldn’t go into the Bardsey net, with their great defending and Bramham hitting the post on a couple of occasions. The breakthrough did happen, however, when Connie’s low shot found the bottom corner.It was a great, hard fought win, with the girls definitely earning the result. Well done girls!
Y5/6 Boys Football match at home vs Wetherby St Joseph’s (12/10/17) – Lost 8-0
12 October 2017
The boys played their third match in the space of a week last night as they hosted St Joseph’s Primary School on our field. The game started evenly, and the boys looked a lot more structured in their shape than they had done previously and were defending well. As the game wore on the opposition were eventually able to break us down, but we’re getting there and improving as every game goes on
Y5/6 Girls’ Football match at home vs Deighton Gates (11/10/17) – Lost 6-2
11 October 2017
Our girls’ team played Deighton Gates on the field last night. Even though we lost, it was close. There were just a couple of key moments which didn’t go our way. Our goals were scored by Connie and Poppy; we were unlucky a couple more chances didn’t go in the back of the net, but the potential is there for the rest of the year. We’re still having a great season having won two out of our first three games, and we’re looking forward to playing more matches next week.
Y5/6 Boys’ Football match at home vs Primrose Lane (10/10/17) – Lost 9-0
10 October 2017
In their second game of the season, the boys played a home game against Primrose Lane Primary School. The boys’ team are learning fast and it was clear to see that they had learned from the previous game and were improving all the time. They were unlucky as Primrose Lane wore us down in the second half and scored some goals in quick succession. Still, they’re not to focus on the score line as it takes away from all the positives from the game!
Y5/6 Boys’ Football match away against Deighton Gates (5/10/17) – Lost 7-0
5 October 2017
The boys’ football team played their first match of the season, away at Deighton Gates this week. Although the result didn’t go our way, there were lots of positives to build on for the rest of the year. We’re a new team and we’re still learning; the boys showed great resilience and stuck together, even when things didn’t go their way.
Y5/6 Girls’ Football at home vs Immaculate Heart (28/9/17) – Won 9-0
28 September 2017
The girls’ football looked to build on their fantastic result in the previous game as they hosted Immaculate Heart Primary on Thursday. Determined to prove the last game wasn’t a one off, the team started with intent, and it required two good saves from their goalkeeper to keep out Connie and Lilly early on.Bramham pressure eventually told however, when they made the breakthrough. The team were able to add to their lead before half time with some more good strikes to make it 5-0 at the break. The final score was 9-0 to Bramham, but credit to Immaculate Heart who never gave up and showed some good signs on the break. Goalscorers for Bramham were; Connie (4), Lucy, Lilly, Paige, Sienna and Tilly. Well done girls on another brilliant result!
Y5/6 Girls’ Football at home vs Meanwood (21/9/17) – Won 8-1
21 September 2017
The girls’ team got their season off to a start when they hosted Meanwood Primary School on Thursday. We had five new players in the team making their football debut for school, with five players returning having been a part of the school’s first ever girl’s football team last year.The game started evenly, but Bramham had some chances; the opposition goalkeeper made two brilliant saves to deny Lilly early on. The deadlock was broken when Connie dribbled from the half way line to slot the ball away; possibly the goal of the season already! After Lilly had doubled the lead, Connie added the team’s third, with what looked like an exact replica of her first. Connie completed her hat trick before half time with another good finish, making the score 4-0 to Bramham.The second half saw the girls add to their lead through goals from Lucy (2), Poppy, and another from Lilly. Meanwood were able to grab a goal late on but the girls were still delighted with their excellent performance. Everybody played brilliantly and it will hopefully be a confidence boost as we look to build in this against Immaculate Heart next week.
