The Hart School Y8 girls football team hosted Newcastle Academy in the quarter-final of the Staffordshire County Cup. The home team settled quickly and scored two quick goals through Millie Ellis and Cira Conway, to ease any nerves they might have been feeling. It was evident that the opposition were not as experienced and posed very little threat to the well-organised home team. A few more chances were created and then spurned before Dolcie Sims took over. She danced through the opposition defence before producing a neat finish for her first and then repeated the same feat for her second and third.
Half time score: Hart School 5 – 0 Newcastle Academy
The second half followed a similar pattern with the Hart School mounting numerous attacks. Newcastle did managed to get the odd shot on target but nothing to worry our keeper about. Millie Ellis scored her second before Leah Lewis got in on the act. Cira Conway then grabbed her second as the opposition began to tire. The home team continued to attack and scored again as Millie Ellis claimed her hat-trick. The icing on the cake was provided by Dolcie Sims who slalomed her way around a couple of defenders before slotting the ball into the bottom corner of the net.
The girls will now face a tough trip away to De Ferrers Academy in the semi-final. FINAL SCORE: Hart School 10 - 0 Newcastle Academy
Our yr7 girls represented the Cannock & Lichfield District yesterday in the County Championships at Fenton Manor Sport centre In Stoke.
We saw a fantastic performance from all of our players, who worked together as a team and did the school proud.
They used all of their reserve energy and there were a number of powerful goals from Ellie Harvey and Yvonne Achampong, and assists from Annie Williams and Lucy Vincent. Emily Chedogzy did a fantastic job of saving an number of really key goals. They played 9 matches in total, winning 2 games, drawing 5, and losing 2 to the two teams that came first and second in the tournament. Our team was;
The Hart School Y8 Boys team played their 9th match of the season this evening against Cardinal Griffin in the 1st round of the Cannock & District Schools FA Cup. The team was slightly changed from our last outing due to a mixture of unavailability and injury to 3 of the players.
Hart School played some good football early on, particularly down the left with Billy Mckenzie, and it was from the left that the opening goal came – a great opportune run from Joe Morley who fizzed the ball across for Alfie Gladwin (his 3rd goal of his Hart School football career) to score a good goal shooting across the keeper in the corner to make it 1-0 to the Hart’s.
The first half continued and continued to be a war of attrition really – a small pitch with little space meant zero time on the ball for the players and also by pressing high and quickly both sides were able to thwart the other sides attacks relatively easily. The 2nd half was much in the same vein, a war of attrition and neither side could score, both had their chances but Hart School won and will travel to Cannock Chase High in the Quarter-Finals.
Final Score: Hart School (1) Cardinal Griffin (0)
The side tonight had Sam Wollaston in goals who had over the course of the match very little to do in truth, earning his 2nd clean sheet of his Hart School career. At the back Jake Cartwright and Charlie Rimmer, an ever reliable pair who excel at defending both making crucial interceptions during both halves. Jake made a couple of marauding rooms throughout the game but the lack of space on the small pitch resulted in them breaking down. At left back the returning Radley Knight who due to skiing and selection hasn’t played since November, he put in a solid performance reminding the management team of the strength in depth and quality that the Y8 side has. Mackenzie John is another fine example of this – a good solid all round player who today played right back, centre back and left back, happy to play anywhere and does great credit to himself with how he plays on the pitch and presents himself off of it. Andrzej Jerome played ¾ of the match at right back – again absolutely solid – one brilliant potentially match-saving tackle towards the end showing once more that there are so many great footballers and students in this year group.
In midfield we had the pairing of Joe Morley and Sam Knapton in centre midfield – perhaps for the first time together. Quality players the both of them, hold the ball well, good on the ball moving forwards and a combination I am looking forward to watching more of as we hopefully progress further in the competition. Billy Mckenzie on the left played nearly the whole match and never stopped running, most of our best play in the first half in particular came from Billy on the left hand side who had a knack of getting around the back of them. Harry Bevan played most of the match on the right and I think in all fairness he didn’t see as much of the ball as he would have liked but when he was on the ball – particularly in the 2nd half he was calm, assured and made some great decisions, came close to scoring in the 2nd half as well but put his shot over the bar.
Up front a trio of players, first mention to Alfie Gladwin, scored a winner again (he did the same in Futsal tournament final last week) asked to support Reiss in attack today which for school at least he hasn’t done so often. He was also asked to drop back and support in the middle when we didn’t have the ball as well and he worked his socks off today and deserved his goal – I think he only moaned at the ref once as well – must be a new record for Alfie J . Alex Ford – another who played up top for school for the first time today I think – brilliant work rate – chased down absolutely everything and was forcing the Cardinal Griffin players into mistakes with his high pressing – unlucky not to score in the first half as well but for the bobbles in the pitch. Finally Reiss Walters. He couldn’t add to his goal tally of 10 today and I think he’d agree he had a frustrating first half in front of goals by his standards, but in the 2nd half he showed some really classy movement on and off the ball – one that sticks out is getting around the defender when backed into the corner with some brilliant skill.
Massive thanks to Cardinal Griffin on playing a good game and good luck for any remaining friendlies they may have this year.
Man of the Match – Joe Morley – his little bit of extra quality on the ball proved to be the difference.
Well done boys. Watched the game my self. Great football skills . Lovely write up from the teachers too . Well done Hart school x
FRENCH EXCHANGE COMES TO AN EMOTIONAL END
Today was a sad day across the channel as our students bid Au Revoir to their host families. The French students tried to hijack the coach and sang a tuneful rendition of ‘we will not be moved!’ We’ve all had a fantastic week and are looking forward to heading home to our families after a tearful farewell. Thanks for having us! ... See MoreSee Less
Today was the students last full day, most of which was spent in school. In the afternoon all of the students from France and the UK, came together to create group presentations about their experiences in both England and France. It was lovely seeing them work so well together. The students are in school tomorrow morning, and will be heading for home in the afternoon. See you soon! À bientôt! ... See MoreSee Less
