Y11 Snatch Defeat From The Jaws of Victory

Having won a close game 2-1 the last time we locked horns with Wickersley, we knew that we were going to face a tough battle on a sticky surface. We started slightly the better of the two teams and were passing the ball confidently but chances were few and far between for either side. We took the lead through Faisal Khairy with a shot from outside the area that caught the home keeper by surprise. We held our lead until the break.

We were aware that Wickersley would carry the fight to us in the second half. They did this in the opening minutes when two brilliant blocks from full back Jack Johnson preserved our lead. At the other end we were struggling to create many chances and a similar goal to our opener drew the home side level.

We came out and played more on the front foot with Wickersley playing on the break. They were still creating the clearer chances though and a breakaway led to a one on one with the forward rounding keeper Rio Barker. Jack somehow managed to get back and scramble the ball off the line.

It looked as though both sides would have to settle for a draw but with 30 seconds to go more heroic blocks in our defence gained no reward as Wickersley managed to steal the win. Disappointment for our boys but lots of heart and effort and great conduct. Louis Waterhouse gained the man of the match award. He was pushed all the way by skipper Brendan Walker.

South Yorkshire Cross Country Championships February 2018

Mrs. Reed had the absolute pleasure of taking Malak, Alex and Ellie to the South Yorkshire Cross-Country Champs on Saturday 3rd February and despite the freezing, wet, muddy conditions, the three of them were a real credit to Clifton.

The final results are not in yet, but in the meantime, please congratulate them on their immense efforts in such challenging conditions.
Well done, guys!

Clifton Community School presents Return to the Forbidden Planet!

Captain Tempest and his crew, aboard the Albatross Survey Flight Nine, find themselves drawn into a meteor storm and stranded on the plant D‘Illyria where they are reunited with an old friend Doctor Prospero. All is not as it seems as Prospero, having been betrayed by his science partner and estranged wife, Gloria, has created the formula ‘X’ Factor. Tempest and his crew must work against time to make sure their ship is saved using the powers of Prospero’s trusty robot, Ariel before they can escape the clutches of the monster of the mind that could destroy them all. 

It’s a tale of love, deceit, fear and hope and the cast have worked tirelessly to put their latest work together. This high energy show features a rocking repertoire of music from the 50s and 60s, roller-skates, a monstrous dancing crew and is littered with Shakespeare’s best loved quotes and limericks.

Guaranteed to have you laughing, crying and dancing in your seat.

Purchase your tickets from Mr. James in the editing suite.
