The Oldbury game was an altogether closer game although the final score-line does not reflect how close the game was. Lyppard were dominant in many areas of the pitch, particularly James who seemed to be everywhere, and had we taken our shooting boots with us, perhaps the outcome would have been different. Oldbury adopted a Leicester style approach, preferring to play counter-attacking football and we were caught out defensively a number of times. Final score, 5-1 to Oldbury.
Despite two heavy defeats, the team deserve huge credit – well done to Harry M; James R; Ellie G; Jacob P; Stevie M; Jamie K; Ciaran M; Eden G; George S; and Oscar V.
Also in action this week were the Y5/6 netball team. Although they conceded defeat at the hands of Our Lady Queen of Peace’s netballers, they should be commended on their teamwork and their ability to keep to the rules and play with consideration and kindness to others. Well done to Anna H; Isabel S; Kaitlyn N; Megan E; Tara C; Ellen W; and Ananya G.
