We invited St. Aubyn’s to Peter May on a wet Wednesday afternoon for the return match of fixtures played earlier in the season. This was the boys’ first fixture after our trip to Madrid and all boys involved showed huge improvements and this was reflected in the A team result where we ran out 5-1 winners, a huge achievement considering we had lost to the same opposition 4-0 in the first half term. The boys played some excellent football and displayed a killer instinct in front of goal that had been missing in previous matches. Our B team match was extremely close which was pleasing to see as we gave as many boys as possible the chance to represent the school . The game was 0-0 up until the last few minutes when St. Aubyn’s unfortunately put some goals past our keeper. Overall, this fixture was great for all of the boys and they all represented the school superbly!

Our U9 Boys A team took the short visit to Forest School to play in their U9 Football Festival, where we played matches against Forest B and Avon House. The boys showed some excellent skill and all round play, running out 9-1 winners against Avon House before also beating Forest B 3-2. This group of boys have shown huge improvements over the course of the term and we have high hopes for these boys in the future. A special mention must go to Benjamin Rafeeq for some excellent goalkeeping and also to Leo Karamanlis and Matteo Payne for superb all round play and goalscoring.
