Y8 were involved in a 9 goal thriller recently against a well organised Rawmarsh team. A good turnout with 13 students representing the school with some notable misses through injury and suspension.
Clifton looked well organised early on, making sure that they defended well from the back and looked to catch Rawmarsh on the break on the well watered surface at Middle Lane. Clifton making use of the fast paced pitch by threading balls over the top and through to Logan Hewitt, who let the line again tonight.
It was Alex Ward who broke the deadlock, latching on to a superb lofted ball from midfield and slotting home past the keeper with a low drive.
Clifton added another in quick succession, Alex Ward taking advantage of a mistake from the opposition midfield to lob the keeper who was off his line from 25 yards. A well deserved lead.
A change at centre back saw Tomas Sivak come off injured and Haris Hussain deputise for him in an unfamiliar role. He worked very hard st the back for 15 minutes to make sure that Rawmarsh didn’t break the Clifon defences.
A poor goal kick however saw the visitors let back in, being gifted to the opposition’s no.9 who dispatched with a tidy finish. Rawmarsh struck again, with a superb effort form 20 yards in which Ibby Bostan had no chance, 2 – 2. Clifton were back ahead after a push on Logan Hewitt inside the 18 yard box gave Clifton the opportunity to score from the spot, Jamie Hartley with a cool, low finish into the right corner, 3 – 2.
After a reality check and knowing they were in a game, Clifton came out of the blocks flying in the second half. A set piece from the corner saw Roman Bogan rise above everybody else and produce a fantastic bullet header into the corner. A well deserved goal for a young man who was immense in the middle of the park today.
A fifth from Clifton was capped by an even better drive from midfield, Jamie Hartley was fed a superb ball down the left by Chad Carney, Jamie then driving it from 25 yards down the keeper’s throat. Smiles all round from the lads who all clapped an admired such a great effort.
Clifton had 15 minutes to see out the match, but weary legs and lack of concentration cost us two quick goals. The lads really dug in, every man defending and a couple of great saves helped us along. Tomas Sivak, despite being injured, came back on and made himself count.
The whistle went to complete Clifton’s first win this season, a thrilling 5 – 4 victory. The spectators for Clifton were elated and Clifton march on and in to the next round, knowing they played well, but have work to do!
These boys were spectacular tonight and were an absolute credit, gracious in victory, shaking hands with all the staff and team at Rawmarsh as well as giving them their deserved three cheers. It made my week to see these lads encourage, dig in and in some cases, bleed for each other, refusing to give in.
The 2nd Clifton meets Bake Off competition was well supported by pupils from all year groups. Read more
Year 11 Parents Evening Thursday 3rd November 2016 4.00 pm – 7.00 pm
The year 11 Parents evening will be held on Thursday 3rd November 2016 between 4PM-7PM. The aim of the evening is for students and parents to meet with subject teachers to discuss progress and get feedback on what needs to be done to maximise student performance in the time remaining.
We would ask that parents and students make every effort to attend this evening as it is important to discuss progress and to ensure students and staff are clear about exactly what needs to be done between now and final exams in May. In addition, how to prepare for the forthcoming mock exams in December.
Each student has an appointment card and we recommend that students and parents see as many subject teachers as they can and come prepared with questions you would like to ask. Students will be responsible for collecting appointments with their teachers in the remaining days before parents evening.
