Wales held the Y9 netball tournament last night. After hours of after school and lunchtime practices, the girls arrived with a confident head on their shoulders.
Last night over 50 students attended a Halloween movie night, in aid of the Sheffield Children’s hospital’s snowflake project. The evening was organised and ran by members of the student council. They sold tickets, sweets, drinks and popcorn to raise money. The evening was a great success and enjoyed by all.
We now have a new award in Maths ‘Maths Achiever of the Term’. Each term each Maths teacher will nominate 3 students across Y7-Y11 that have gone over and above in Maths. Read more
A much better display by the Y8’s this week. With a much changed team to previous weeks the lads showed the effort and commitment which had been lacking slightly, leaving us on the end of an unfortunate 2-0 defeat to a really strong Wickersley team!
The first half started with a real high tempo with some hard but fair tackles. Very few opportunities were created as both defences were on top, with one of the only chances were if the first half Wickersley took the lead after a defensive mix up lead to their striker placing it neatly into the bottom corner. This woke us up and we were on top for the remaining 10 minutes of the first half with their keep pulling of a couple of good saves including one of the best saves I’ve seen from a keeper of this age as the ball was flying into the top corner from Finley’s left boot was tipped onto the corner of the crossbar. 1-0 at HT.
The second half started very similar to the first with both defences on top again. We were on top again creating a few chance through Finley and Josh but we didn’t have that cutting edge to make one count. With 7 minutes left Wickersley doubled their lead from a free kick played into the box which produced a fine save from out new goal keeper Dylan Whatley (who was our man of the match) but the rebound landed to a Wickersley man who slotted home! Another chance came and went for Clifton who knew by this time it wasn’t our day.
All the lads worked hard and showed the desire that is needed to perform well. The lads effort and attitude was again a credit to Clifton.
Dylan Whatley (man of the match)
We put in our best footballing performance of the season today in a fine 2-1 win against a well organised Wickersley team.
We started much the better of the two sides and our quick passing game was causing danger every time we went forward. Strangely it was through route one that we carved out the first chance of the game. A high looping ball into the penalty area saw Connor Coady bravely challenge the home Goalkeeper but his header bounced agonisingly wide.
Connor went close again forcing a smart save from the Wickersley number one before Henrik Santana drilled a low effort narrowly off target. At the back Brendan Walker and captain Declan Avill were marshalling the defence as we made sure we avoided the sucker punch.
Our dominance finally paid off when we gained a free kick outside the penalty area. Brendan strode up from the back and duly dispatched a “knuckleball” strike in off the crossbar. It was his first goal of the season and a really good strike.
We continued to control the game although there was a moment of panic when the Wickersley forward got behind our back line and rounded Shafique Rafique (deputising in goal). Thankfully the angle was just too tight and we survived to lead 1-0 at the break.
The second half kicked off with us taking the game to the home team and once more looking the more dangerous. Connor who had looked sharp all morning finally got the goal his running deserved when he latched onto a great header by Amaan Ghani and lifted the ball over the keeper to double our advantage.
Faisail Khary was unlucky not to make it 3 when he struck the post from outside the area but we realised we still had work to do when Wickersley capitalised on a loose ball in our area and gave themselves a foothold in the game.
We did an excellent job of protecting the lead and seeing the game out with our midfield trio of Louis Waterhouse, Henrik Santana and Jose Santana superb throughout. Jose was our man of the match with an excellent display of powerful, skillful running from the middle of the park.
A very enjoyable morning for all involved.
